NetShield Heavy Duty Batting Cage Vinyl Impact Mesh

Protect your walls, windows, and spectators and maximize your playable space with NetShield Heavy Duty Batting Cage Vinyl Impact Mesh.

Without NetShield, you must leave a 2 – 3 ft gap between your netting & walls, 3-5 ft from lights, and 5-10 ft from spectators & walking paths.

NetShield Heavy Duty Batting Cage Vinyl Impact Mesh allows installation as close as 4 – 6 inches from walls. (Testing has been performed with a pitching machine throwing 90 MPH creating a stretch of approximately 6 inches – Watch Video Here).

NetShield should still be installed no closer than 1-2 ft from an area where people may walk – a big difference from the typical 5 – 10 ft with netting!


“I purchased the NetShield for a home batting cage. I was a little sceptical when I first received the product. That material felt extremely lightweight, and I thought there was no way the material would hold up to a baseball. I installed the NetShield on the inside of my the batting cage netting, about one foot from drywall and it works as described by Practice Sports. My 10-year-old son hits balls directly into the netting with an exit velocity of 60 mph and the net barely moves. I highly recommend if you have a batting cage close to walls and windows.”

NetShield extends the life-span of netting by 10 years or more. Instead of replacing worn netting, simply zip-tie panels of NetShield on the inside or outside of your netting, to cover high-risk zones, or weak & unsightly areas.

Best Uses

  • Along walls to prevent damage
  • Behind batter for “impact zones”
  • Behind pitcher for “batter’s eye”
  • Isolated ceiling areas to protect HVAC
  • Hanging from ceiling to contain balls inside ShellCage lanes
  • Attached to outdoor fences

NetShield gives facilities an instant image make-over by hiding ugly walls or damaged netting – while also improving the safety and expanding the usable space.

The cost of NetShield is comparable to #60 Gauge Netting, and the life-span is even longer. An estimated life-span is 10-15 years for impact purposes, and much longer for non-impact areas.

NetShield includes UV Inhibitors, so can be used indoors or outdoors.

Add Half-Moon wind vents for outdoor applications, every 10-20 ft — +$2.50 each.

    The netshield works great as a back stop and is see through which is a huge bonus for spectators and training staff to be able to have visibility of the batter in the box.

    It knocks down up to 100mph fastballs from our pitching machines with ease while saving wear and tear on our nets.

    Highly recommend getting some for your cages instead of buying a heavy opaque backstop. They are actually more affordable than most Amazon and Sporting good store’s backstop products too!
