New Sports Facility Netting

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

Eastern Iowa Sports Facility is a new commercial training facility that has been opened in Monticello, IA that features baseball, softball, and golf conditioning.  Over the course of their facility development and construction, supplied and shipped the custom netting productions needed for sports barrier and containment requirements.
Commercial baseball and softball netting is most commonly supplied in the #36 X 1-3/4″ (381 lb./twine) nylon netting, while the commercially-applied golf impact netting is the #21 X 3/4″ (241 lb./twine) nylon netting.  Both are created from the DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon mesh construction, and the custom netting panels featured 5/16″ Dacron® (3200 lb./test) rope borders and central-riblines.
Commercial sports facility netting is a specialty of, and can be supplied to custom dimensions, features, and unique designs.  Below you can see the netting panel blueprint/plans for the netting panels, followed by some photos of the netting installed within the facility itself.  As you can see, this sports netting production required:

  • tapered shapes to line-up with the sloped roofline
  • sewn-in rope riblines for wall/netting connections
  • “puzzle-piece” configurations to match ceilings, walls, and end-panels
  • large dimensions and customized mesh

Aside from these great examples of the nylon netting productions for the Eastern Iowa Sports Facility, you can also examine some of the other custom nets and netting enclosures supplied by Gourock on the website.
