Commercial & Industrial Netting Made in the USA

Sep 4, 2008
Most netting is made from nylon, polyester, or high tenacity polypropylene, a plastic polymer with amazing strength and resilience. Netting is used in almost every environment or industry for some functional or safety-related task. Amusement parks, theme parks, and water parks rely heavily on netting for child safety and crowd control. Many types of industrial facilities and service centers use to form protective barriers around maintenance bays in auto, truck, bus, and rail service centers. In the construction world, the use of safety nets, debris containment nets, and lifting nets are critical to operations. In material handling environments, netting plays a critical role in both fall prevention and in the creation of protective barriers around secure areas and dangerous equipment. Almost every form of sport uses netting as well.

The categories into which nets are classified are too numerous to address in a single article, although the most requested and sought after types and applications represent a form of classification that makes procurement more efficient and targeted.

Cargo Nets

Cargo lift nets are used to load and unload cargo using a lifting method that draws the corners of a net around its load to a gathered point located above the load providing secure and balanced lifting.

Safety Netting

Safety nets are used for fall protection, personnel safety, and debris containment. They are used extensively in material handling environments around mezzanine systems, conveyor belts, and racks. Construction environments rely upon them more for both safety and debris control and for lifting certain materials.

Nylon Netting

Nylon is an excellent material for safety and sports netting. Nylon has 3X the abrasion resistance of polypropylene and does not rot. It is ideal for use in sporting and recreational environments that are exposed to a combination of heat and high humidity.

Mesh netting

Mesh offers two major benefits to material handling and safety environments. Mesh has very fine holes that allow light to penetrate its surface but does not allow for clear visibility to the other side. Mesh can be used as a substitute for a wall when sensitive areas need to be blocked off from the view of unauthorized personnel. Equally, if not more importantly, mesh is highly tenacious and optimal for debris containment and lifting.

Protective and Protection Netting

Workers are often standing or walking around on elevated platforms. This is common in large warehouses with mezzanine systems and on almost every type of construction site. A fall from even a relatively short distance can result in permanent injury or death. Protective netting installed around these platforms forms a wall-like barrier to prevent this from happening.

Barrier Netting

Events and outdoor public facilities can become so crowded that it is necessary to restrict access to certain areas and to direct traffic along certain pathways. Polyester or polypropylene barriers can be obtained in a variety of low profile and even decorative designs that limit mobility without overpowering the scenery.

Golf Netting Golf Barrier Netting

Perhaps one of the best inventions ever devised from driving range enthusiasts. These barriers catch golf balls and eliminate the long walks and golf ball retrievals so players can have more time to focus on their golfing skills.
