Craft the Perfect Batting Environment with Durable Hitting Cage Netting

Building a safe and effective batting cage requires meticulous planning, with hitting cage netting being a paramount element. Hitting cage netting, also known as a batting cage net, is a specialized barrier that confines baseballs and softballs within the designated practice area. This netting prioritizes the safety of players, coaches, and anyone nearby, while also preventing balls from escaping and potentially causing property damage. However, sourcing custom hitting cage netting for your specific installation can be a hurdle. Finding the right dimensions, material, and durability to endure the impact of powerful hits is crucial for creating an optimal training environment.

Thankfully, there’s a solution! Our high-quality nylon netting, available from Gourock.com, is perfectly suited for batting cage applications. Our heavy-duty hitting cage netting comes in a diverse range of sizes to precisely match your unique batting cage requirements. More importantly, this exceptional nylon netting is renowned for its remarkable strength and resilience. It can endure countless hits without breaking or tearing, guaranteeing long-lasting performance and player safety throughout your training sessions. We invite you to explore the world of hitting cage netting and discover how it can transform your batting practice experience!

Typical twine thicknesses for batting cage net productions are the #21 (2.0mm), the #36 (2.5mm), and the #72 (3.5mm) which allows our sports netting customers a convenient array of options that range from private residential purposes, to scholastic and organizational locations, to high traffic professional and stadium oriented netting installations.

Custom baseball and softball batting nets from Gourock are constructed according to the height, the width, and the length preferred by our customer’s needs. In many cases our clients already have an existing framing structure or installation area built that the enclosure nets will be suspended within. So in cases like these, the batting tunnel nets are able to be specifically tailored to match the current framing or cable suspension measurements. A big advantage of utilizing hitting nets that are produced per-order and to custom sizing is that the end result not only functions very nicely with dependable durability and fit, but also results in an aesthetically professional appearance and overall look as well. And then in other cases, the hitting cage netting is being built to match a new construction site, such as a training facilities, batting practice installations at stadiums or field houses, or at private property sports locations. At Gourock.com we have over 2 decades of custom netting experience for customers of all types and all net sizing requirements – so can be your trusted source for high quality batting cage nets and hitting cage enclosures.

Examples of Recent Custom Batting Cage Netting Jobs for Context and Reference

To help with your research into baseball nets and softball netting, here are 3 relatively recent examples of customized hitting cage nets that were facilitated by Gourock for different types of customers that were seeking hitting netting and ball containment netting solutions at their training locations. Each of these projects were speciality built to unique sizing, with different construction features, and from #36 X 1-3/4″ DuPont® Type 66 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting.

In this first example we are showing a custom batting cage net that was ordered by a high school located in western Washington State for the girls softball program. This hitting cage net was constructed to match a new construction of a semi-indoor batting and training facility they were building, which was to have the netting suspended within a pavilion-style structure – allowing for a covered batting cage and hitting space. In this case the netting was requested to be double-wide so that the entire area was enclosed with containment mesh, to the overall dimensions of 14′-6″ high X 27′ wide X 60′ long. Also included in this netting order was a secondary divider panel net of 14′-6″ X 62′ that was to be installed independently within the enclosure – allowing for the space to be separated into two individual batting tunnel areas. One end panel of the batting cage net included 3′ overlapping netting entrance areas to function as doors into the enclosure. And then finally there were ceiling line ropes on 6′-9″ spring intervals to line-up with the upper cables/wires that the netting was to be clipped to and suspended from within the pavilion structure. All remaining edges of the nets were rope bordered as well. This custom netting production was completed and ready to head to our customer within 3 working weeks of the order being placed.

In this second custom hitting cage net example we show a 15′ high X 16′ wide X 56′ long batting enclosure that was built for a private property owner in Montana. He had constructed a building for sports training at his location, and was seeking a batting cage net to suspend inside of it. In this case, the netting design featured one central ceiling line rope, and had a 3′ overlapping netting entrance door located in one of the end panel corners for easy entrance and exit from the netting enclosure. This batting cage net was built and shipped to our customer within 10 working days of the order being placed.

And in this third example we present the details of a custom batting tunnel net that was ordered by a little league organization in Virginia. In this case they already had a framing structure of posts and poles that were located within a covered area of their stadium location, and needed a new replacement net that had the finished dimensions of 12′ high X 16′ wide X 74′ long. All edges of this net were 5/16″ polyester rope bordered, including a single central rope down the ceiling as well. In addition they also ordered new replacement cabling hardware items from us as well – including 3/16″ galvanized steel aircraft cable, 3/8″ galvanized steel turnbuckles, 3/16″ galvanized steel cable clamps, and 1/4″ galvanized steel carabiner-style snap hook clips. The hardware items were packed and shipped out immediately, and the custom hitting cage net was constructed and shipped out within 7 working days of the order being placed.
