Netting Installation Pole Sizes

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

The Home Barrier Netting Poles are a very popular and practical way to suspend barrier netting panels, and Home Batting Cage Nets.  They feature a semi-permanent ground anchor that augers into your soil, and then the 2″ steel poles slide into the ground sleeve.  Netting is clipped to the welded attachment hook at the top of the pole with the included snap-hooks.  The home barrier poles are not a substitute to a tensioned-cable permanent installation (like at a driving range, stadium, or similar installation), however they are an excellent alternative for installations that:

  • are not permanently installed into property with concrete footings
  • are to be removed or installed seasonally
  • need to be completely removed or moved easily
  • are to be set-up only when needed and stored when not
  • are for most residential barrier solutions

These poles/anchors are not used with a tensioned-cable type of design, so they are typically spaced every 10′-12′ in distance to allow for as ‘sag-free’ of and installation as possible regarding the hanging netting.  These poles are used all of the time for a huge variety of applications, ranging from scholastic/field barricade nets, to backyard basketball/soccer/multisport barrier needs, golf range barrier, and a host of unique uses in-between.

There have been some requests over the years for specific sizes of the pole-sections used for each of the available finished pole lengths.  So below are diagrams that demonstrate the number of sections used, and the length of each section used, for all four heights available.  The home-barrier poles are supplied in sizes of:  8′, 10′, 12′, and 14′For netting installations that require heights that are greater than 14′, you’ll need to utilize a more permanent installation system (concrete footings & permanent poles) or a tensioned-cable installation.

    1. Thanks for writing Keri! Unfortunately they are not a product that we supply at this time, sorry about that! The poles were discontinued from our product line in late 2019, but we retain some of the product information online for reference by previous customers that are still using those poles/materials – and for general context as well. There are some other vendors online that specialize in the supply of Ground Sleeves or Ground Screws, and they are generally compatible with various diameters/sizes of tubes or poles that can be sourced from a fencing or tubing supplier. The nets that we supply can be installed and hung within a wide variety of installation techniques and materials, including to posts and poles that are intermittently spaced-out along the length of coverage.
