Perimeter netting for sports

Perimeter netting for sports

Sports netting for safety and marking boundaries

Baxtop  malla evitas accidentes que pueden causar en un partido de futbol
Perimeter netting for sports areas is important in order to avoid “collateral damage.”

sports net

Probably more than once you have watched a baseball game on TV when the ball has gone into the stands where it was caught by a fan.  For many of those who who catch a ball in the stands, it can become an unforgettable and a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  This is especially true if it is an important game such as a deciding game in a playoff and, even more so, if it happens to be your favorite team.  The same thing can happen in other sports such as soccer, for example, when the ball goes into the bleachers and there is a celebratory moment with the ball before needing to return it.  It sounds like fun.  It sounds like a moment to be relished.  It even sounds idyllic to hold in your hands a ball that moments before was hit or kicked by your favorite player.  How happy a fan would be in a moment like this!  But this blissful moment of happiness often times has a dark side which has hovered over (and will continue to hover over) sports fields and it is none other than the accidents caused by objects that leave the playing field and also objects that might enter the playing field.

Perimeter networks as public protection

There are some who think that the nets that are seen around sports fields, such as around a baseball diamond, for example, are there for the protection of the players and people.  Many times a fan can be seen catching a ball, but there are also times when that ball can do harm to a fan.  Have you never heard of a baseball hitting a fan right in the face?  Or how about the bat that escapes the batter’s grip and accidentally gets thrown into the stands?  Have you never heard of a soccer player getting hit in the head by a bottle thrown by an upset fan?  Or of fans storming out onto the field for one reason or another and the game needing to be canceled?  All of these things have happened in the world of sports and not just in baseball or soccer.  They have also happened in other sports and some cases in particular have been delicate situations and even have resulted in death.

In the realm of sports, sports netting can serve as protection netting to prevent objects, be they from within or from without, from causing harm.

The intended purpose of perimeter netting and sports netting is to prevent accidents that can be caused by objects flying from the playing field into the stands or from the stands onto the playing field and also to keep unauthorized personnel out of restricted areas.  This last purpose is another attribute of these nets:  as perimeter netting they define spaces.

Perimeter network size

These nettings come in different sizes and thicknesses depending on the space that is to be protected.  The technical terminology for classifying perimeter netting and sports netting is gauge and opening.  Gauge can be anywhere from 18 up to 32 or even a little more.  Opening (the size of the square of the mesh) can vary in size from 2.5 centimeters (1.0 inches) to 10 centimeters (3.9 inches).  Its fabrication is of nylon and it undergoes various techniques and processes to give it greater durability and make it more resistant to UV rays and flying objects or animals which may assail it.  There are treatment techniques for perimeter netting that use tar to make it ultraviolet-radiation and severe-weather resistant.

Use for different types of perimeter networks

When it comes to sports netting and perimeter netting there are two types:  the first is the familiar nylon netting and the second is metal mesh or chain link fencing.  Which type gets used depends on the customer’s preference:  some choose the classical nylon netting while others prefer the metal mesh.  There are differences between the two types with cost being the first difference.  Chain link is quite a bit more expensive than nylon perimeter netting, especially for large spaces.  The second difference is the installation of the product.  Nylon netting is much simpler to install than metal mesh, not requiring much labor nor time to get it put up, in contrast to chain link, which requires more time and work to put up.  Another difference is the resistance that each type of sports netting and perimeter netting has to the impacts that they might be subjected to during their lifespan. 

Wire Mesh Effects

In this regard, chain link has a big advantage over nylon mesh since, due to the durability of metal, it can withstand many more impacts before beginning to show wear.  The bad thing about metal mesh is that as time goes by it gets deformed by the weather and the impacts that it undergoes which results in irregularities and creases at places which could cut someone and damage balls that bang into these spots.  These types of defects and damage that can occur in metal mesh often do occur in poor quality chain link, causing additional costs for repair or removal and replacement of the affected area.  With respect to nylon netting, it is not as resistant as metal mesh, but, all the same, does serve its purpose for quite a few years.  But the same thing that happens with poor quality metal mesh, happens with the average nylon netting also.  Perimeter netting should possess the resistance  and proper tension in order to withstand the potential impacts that it might receive, but, if it does not meet these two criteria, than with the first impacts that it receives, it will begin to unravel and tear little by little.  But, unlike chain link, nylon mesh will not become deformed by the impacts that it receives.

Useful life of perimeter networks

 The last difference between the two types of sports netting and perimeter netting is life expectancy.  In the case of good quality chain link, useful life can be as much as 12 years, whereas nylon netting could be as much as seven or eight years, or a little more.  With regard to this factor, the conditions under which it will be used and the geographical location of its installation need to be taken into account.  If metal mesh is used in coastal zones, its life span will be shortened due to constant contact with the sea breeze, and, in the case of poor-quality, nongalvanized metal mesh, the life span will be much less.  On the other hand, nylon mesh has no disadvantage whatsoever under these conditions since the materials used for making it are similar to those used for netting intended for marine environments and for fishing.

Different types of perimeter mesh

It is advisable to use different types of netting in conjunction with each other.  Metal mesh should be used to safeguard the first two or three meters (seven to ten feet) of a zone while nylon netting can be used for the rest of the run according to the area to be protected and the kind of sport to be played.

This protection netting can be used for all kinds of sports, such as football, rugby, soccer, baseball, tennis, golf, volleyball, training fields, etc.  In addition to protecting fans and players, it can also serve as perimeter netting to define the necessary areas and zones.

Protection netting is quite adaptable for use on a variety of sports fields and courts:  soccer, tennis, volleyball, etc.

Installation of network types

A critical requirement for sites where sports will constantly be played is the installation of protection netting since, as has been seen throughout this article, this type of netting–nylon as well as metal–helps to prevent accidents by objects that can enter into the field of play as well as those that can exit from the field of play.  Can you imagine watching a baseball game and the next thing that you know a baseball is blazing straight for your face?  Can you imagine watching golf and all at once the ball strikes someone in the face or on the head?  This kind of accident can be prevented if protection norms are correctly employed for the different sports venues, with the use of protection netting being an obligatory prerequisite.

Uses of the perimeter network

These nettings are used for more than just sports, as is the case of the construction industry where the use of protection netting is standard practice in order to delineate different areas according to their function and to keep out unauthorized personnel.  It also prevents the risk from flying objects that could come out of the construction zone and cause damage to construction personnel and people and property, such as cars or structures, outside and adjacent to the construction area.  Without a doubt, perimeter netting is an option to be chosen when it comes to safety and defining boundaries.

There exist other ways of marking boundaries, such as wooden fences, but these are reserved for specific sports and can be quite costly.

The advantage of nylon perimeter netting is that it is more practical and economical than other types of netting.

Risks of a bad installation

Before beginning with perimeter netting and sports netting, it is important that it be determined that the product meets the minimum quality requirements in order to assure that the product will actually do what it needs to do and will not need to be replaced all the time because it is lacking in resistance and durability.  A piece of advise before selecting your perimeter netting:  if it is to be nylon, make sure that it really is nylon and not some other kind of fiber since the quality that is required by nylon perimeter netting in regards to durability and resistance to weathering and the impacts that it will receive during its lifespan, will be undermined by choosing poor quality materials.  In addition to this, you need to be sure that the nylon has a coating of something to give it greater resistance to continuous exposure to ultraviolet radiation.

network colors

Something else to keep in mind when getting perimeter netting is the color of the netting.  It may seem like a matter of little consequence, but the color can have repercussions when sports are actually being played.  The recommended colors are black and dark blue when it comes to nylon netting, whereas for metal mesh it is the traditional gray.  Unless justified for some reason, eye-catching colors should be avoided since they tend to be distracting for spectators and even for the players themselves.

Dark colors are best suited, and the ones that are recommended, for sports netting.

Perimeter netting and sports netting are a necessary accessory for sports grounds since they prevent the possibility of accidents caused by flying objects as well as defining the boundaries between areas.  Its use, far from being something primarily aesthetic in nature, is safety oriented by nature which makes its use obligatory, if what you want to do, is provide guaranteed protection for spectators and players when playing sports in a given area.  Don’t give it any more thought and go on ahead and get your sports netting, giving the area to be protected a touch of class as well as providing it with safety.
