Custom Batting Cage Nets – Commercial Use
Gourock supplies very customized batting cage nets that are designed and constructed for professional commercial users, as well as for university, league/team, scholastic, and residential customers. A conventional batting cage netting design is essentially a box-style netting enclosure, incorporating 2 sides, 2 ends, and the ceiling – all seamed together. Gourock.com readily offers custom batting cage nets built in this style, which you can order to any 3 dimensions you prefer, right through our online Custom Nylon Batting Cage Netting Calculator:
These nets are constructed per-order, 100% Made in the USA, from the highest-quality DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting. There are 3 twine thicknesses to consider (#21, #36, and #72), and are a fantastic custom netting product for customers that have specific sizing needs to accommodate. They often range from being very large volume enclosures with divider nets, to much smaller enclosure nets that are required for constrained spaces.
However, we also do very customized designs that have many significant sizing, shape, and unique characteristics to account for. Some examples of these features are:
- tapers and angles
- doors and entrances
- reinforced netting areas
- notches and cutouts
- divider panels and impact netting zones
- specifically spaced ceiling lines
- open end panels
Usually the types of custom batting cage nets that require such unique characteristics are those that are being used for professional and commercial installations. These include training facilities, professional and university stadiums, marketing events and trade-shows, corporate headquarters, and other similar commercial sites. Should you have some more unique customized requirements that you’re seeking for your batting cage netting installation, feel free to contact Gourock with your request and we can certainly take a look at things and get a quote prepared for what we can supply and ship out to your location.
For example, here are 2 examples from the last couple of weeks that clearly demonstrate the amount of customization that is available from Gourock.com with regards to batting cage netting enclosures:
This following net is a very heavy-duty baseball netting design constructed from the thickest #72 X 1-3/4″ DuPont® nylon netting. This is actually the second one of these produced for our customer in South Plainfield, NJ, with the first one being from 2017. This one is joining that original net at the facility (since the original design has worked so well for their space and their business). There were actually a couple more very specialized characteristics added to the first design, which took a really custom job in the first place and made it even more specialized for their specific space!
- sloped profile shape and sizing needs
- “flared-out” end area to correspond with their tapered framing
- notched end-panel construction to line-up with a fence/wall
- specific netting “cutout” zone to line-up with an existing door
- extra ceiling line ropes
- secondary double-layers of reinforcement netting built-in to both side walls
- secondary double-layer of reinforcement netting built into the flared-out ceiling
This following net is for a fan-involvement pitching display at Miller Field in Milwaukee, WI (Brewers Stadium). Our customer had a very specific framing construction that needed the netting to be built to function as needed for the space and the intended use. Nets like this one are generally supplied to national marketing firms that are running the events and displays at every home-game for one of their particular clients. In this case, the netting enclosure area is constructed from the #36 X 1-3/4″ DuPont® knotted nylon, with secondary impact areas built from the heavier #72 X 1-3/4″.
- specific sizing and dimensions
- customized open end-panel with mid baffle
- secondary/separate end panel nets to slide “curtain-style” under the framing
- secondary/separate impact panel nets to absorb pitches
- heavy-rope (leadline) bottom edges
