Tapered netting designs and supply are a fairly commonplace request from many customers that we service. There are several reasons why tapered or angled features of a netting panel may be optimal, including situations like:
- lining up the netting to a custom framing/structure
- matching the netting panel to a property or boundary line
- spanning netting panels between poles of various heights/lengths
- “filling in the gaps” of spaces that are triangular shaped or sloped
- matching up the barrier netting with a roofline or groundlevel
Of course, with custom netting supply there are always custom applications – so the examples above are only a small glimpse into the hundreds of uses that may require tapers/angles, but they represent a broad context for general use. Throughout the Gourock.com site and also the Gourock Netting Blog you can view several examples of unique netting designs and applications, and below are a couple of recent ones from the last few weeks for your consideration.
This first example (see below) shows a combination of typical rectangular dimensions along with specific tapered/angled sections. This netting panel was constructed from #12 X 1-3/4″ Diamond Mesh Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, and featured the 5/16″ Braided Rope Bordering sewn-in around the entire perimeter. This particular netting production was part of a larger order of 15 nets for a sporting event in Miami, FL. The net shown below was created to be an overhead/ceiling net that needed to be spanned between a set of posts/poles that were already in place for the event area. This was the ceiling containment net, used to keep soccer balls and baseballs within the overall space – and the other netting panels were used to surround the area and act as the vertical barrier nets.
This second example (see below) is more indicative of a private/residential need for a custom-shaped netting panel. This net has the purpose of a baseball training impact and hitting net that needed to be tapered to fit into an odd-shaped installation area. Utilizing some very durable impact netting materials, including #36 X 1-3/4″ DuPont® Type 66-728 Knotted Nylon Netting, additional “Diamond Shield Dipping”, Dacron® rope bordering, and a Leadline Bottom edge – this netting panel also features a tapered shape to fit the customer’s particular area.
