Custom Netting Application

Monday, November 9th, 2009

Nylon netting is a very durable and dependable solution for a huge variety of unique applications.  Aside from common athletic or stadium netting installations, Gourock supplies customized netting panels for barrier and protective/safety purposes like:  landfills, aviary and bird netting use, pond and leaf barrier netting, warehouse needs, animal control, marine/boating needs, and most every other application that you can imagine!  If you think that your particular idea can be enhanced with netting features, chances are that they probably can!

The DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting is an excellent construction choice for custom barrier uses, whether they be commercial or residential.  It has a very high tensile strength and abrasion resistance, is completely prepared for long-term exposure, and is available from in a wide variety of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses.  And of course, you are free to order or be quoted on any dimensions that you need, and often in any customized shapes/tapers that you require.  For instance, here is a great photo of some 1″ tarred nylon netting that was designed and supply by Gourock for a custom playground barrier installation to protect from incoming golf balls and errant shots.  As you can see, this particular example shows not just the tapered and custom-built netting panels, but also another great example of clipping/hanging the Dacron® rope borders to tensioned cables.  Choosing the #18 X 1″ tarred knotted nylon is optimal for these sorts of outdoor protection installations due to its additional tar-coating that maximizes UV resistance.
