Custom Basketball-Shot Netting

Friday, June 10th, 2011

A few weeks ago we had a request for some customized nets to be utilized within a unique marketing application that involved a basketball shooting game.  There were a couple of different sizes and shapes that needed to be facilitated, put into production, and shipped to our customer’s event locations.  These nets had some very specific dimensions, tapers, and shapes in order to fit within their necessary area and to function well to catch-and-return the shot basketballs.
Gourock.com specializes in providing custom netting solutions for a very wide variety of applications – so these nets were certainly available to quote and provide for this particular end-user.  The materials used for the job were the #21 X 1-3/4″ DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, edged with sewn-in 5/16″ Dacron® Rope Borders, and then reinforced at several connection points with 2″ steel rings.
The #21 X 1-3/4″ nylon netting is typically the most popular choice for basketball netting applications due to its exceptional combination of tensile strength, twine thickness, weight, and overall value.
Feel free to take a look through the drawings that were drafted-up for production on these custom nets to view the details and specifics that were required for these custom nets – as well as the general product rendering that was provided by our customer for context.
