Barrier Net Tips & Tricks

Know Your Mesh Size

  • 4" for Basketball, Soccer, Volleyball and other large ball sports
  • 1-3/4" or 1-7/8" for Baseball, Softball, Cricket, Indirect Lacrosse, High-Impact Soccer
  • 1-1/2" for High-Impact Lacrosse, Hockey
  • 3/4" or 7/8" for Golf

Know Your Gauge

  • Gauge refers to twine diameter. The higher the number, the thicker the net, the longer the lifespan.
  • Only use #18 nets for large ball light impact applications like volleyball backstop nets.
  • #36 is the most widely used gauge for baseball backstops.
  • #60 is not recommended for baseball backstops due to it's heavy weight and limited spectator visiblity.
  • Dyneema is used by most MLB teams for their net backstops. Contact us for pricing.

Make Your Outdoor Barrier Net Water Resistant

  • Nylon nets require a latex dip to be truly water resistant. Very important since most backstop nets are too large to take down in the off season.

Add Extra Rib Lines to Oversized Barrier Nets

  • Rib lines are 3/8" ropes woven into the net to provide additional support.
  • Rib lines should run the length of your backstop net. Spaced every 10-12 ft.
  • Always use the border rope or rib line as attachment points. Never attach directly to the mesh itself.
