Nylon Netting Used For ATV Dog Containment – customer photos
Gourock.com specializes in the supply of custom netting materials, prepared per-order according to your own specified sizing and finishing preferences. A great characteristic of the custom nylon and polyester netting options available through the Gourock site is the multipurpose flexibility they offer for a very wide variety of unique and personalized applications. There are quite a few selections available to consider, with a variety of different mesh sizes and twine thicknesses – all of which are readily ordered to your own custom dimensions directly through the Gourock.com site:
One of the netting options that we have available that is very popular for multipurpose and more uniquely specialized projects is the 210D/80 X 1″ knotless nylon netting. This is a netting construction that features:
- braided-knotless mesh construction
- 1″ square mesh size
- twine thickness of #26 (209 lb./tensile rating)
- UV stabilization and urethane bonding
- a variety of coloring options: black, white, blue, tan, grey, yellow, orange, magenta/red
- available to order according to any dimensions you prefer
It’s a very user-friendly netting to work with, and can be prepared for you with a rope bordering sewn-in around the edges, or with a 1-1/2″ webbing/grommeted border, or as sections of bulk mesh. The 1″ mesh size is very applicable for a wide-range of uses (it’s a very multipurpose mesh size), and the different coloring options make it attractive for different aesthetic characteristics that may be preferred for the overall project. It features a moderately thick twine size that has a very high abrasion resistance along with high tensile strength rating, making it a very dependable and durable netting selection without being overly thick/heavy while at the same time not being a lightweight material either. In addition to those intrinsic attributes, the braided-knotless nylon netting is a “fabric-like” material – so many people find it a very adaptable mesh that can mold/wrap/adjust around odd-shaped spaces and/or structures.
Gourock.com often supplies custom netting for pet and animal barrier uses, especially for dogs. Many times the dog barrier netting is blocking off a loft area, doorways, railings, or decks/patios. Gourock also supplies netting that is applied to various different types of transportation vehicles for different uses, including for boats, trucks, trailers, and passenger cars. A recent Gourock netting customer had a need for barrier netting that was to be used for both of these uses – he had a side-by-side ATV that he often operated with his Golden Retriever riding in back, and needed to dependably contain his dog within the ATV while driving. The 1″ knotless nylon netting was a great selection for his use, since the preference was for a strong pliable netting material with a mesh size that was small enough to avoid paws going “though” the netting, as well as having a bright color for both visibility and also aesthetic.
He opted for a bulk mesh section of orange-colored 210D/80 X 1″ knotless nylon netting, so that he could use that material to layer around his ATV where needed, and then cut/trim to shape on his own while working with it. In this case it was a 4′-6″ X 22′ section of netting, in order to have enough material to work with, along with having some excess mesh to hold on the side for future uses or additions if needed. Also ordered was a 100′ length of the black braided-polyester rope that we supply, which is the same rope that is used on netting productions that have the rope already sewn-in around the perimeter of the mesh. This bulk length of rope was used by him to weave/lace through the edges of his personally cut/trimmed netting in order to reinforce the edges and provide a nice strong/durable material to attach the netting to the framing of the ATV. He used bungee cord materials (like the Bungee Balls available from Gourock) to actually connect the netting to his side-by-side, which are convenient because they add a bit of tension/tightness to the overall installation of the netting, and are efficiently removed if needed for instances where the netting may need to come off of the vehicle for storage or in periods of non-use.
Here are some photos that were provided to use from our customer, and they are quite helpful to get a good look at how the nylon netting available from Gourock.com can be used for very unique and personalized projects that not only function with the highest expectation of durability, but also look really good too!
Thank you again Tom – great job, and we appreciate it very much!
