Netting Borders - Perimeter Bordering Options on Custom Netting Panels & Nets
Rope Bordering, Webbing and Grommet Borders, and Alternative Netting Cord Borders - Available Per Mesh Pattern Type
The custom netting products available from Gourock are built according to your own preferred dimensions, and there are also perimeter bordering options that can be installed around the perimeter edges of the netting meshes. Adding a border material around the perimeter of the netting adds to the durability, effectiveness, ease-of-use, aesthetic, and general robustness of the finished custom netting production. As you navigate through the Online Custom Netting Calculators to add custom-sized nets to your shopping cart, you will also be presented with some available bordering selections to select from. The available bordering features depend on a few factors including netting material, the mesh pattern, and fabrication availability on the factory floor. Gourock's netting calculators will automatically display the available bordering options depending on what netting selections you are making, resulting in efficiently clear online ordering of your netting panels.
Perimeter border selections can vary by netting choice, and all available options are a great added feature to a finished custom netting panel. In general you are offered choices of Rope Borders and Webbing Borders with Grommets for most netting types, depending on the mesh pattern and twine thickness. There are also some netting products we supply that have a Cord Border that is available to be installed. See the below categories for some descriptions and reference images of each perimeter border selection, which will be helpful for product research and ordering choices.
