Rope binding is a 3/8” hollow braid rope that is weaved in and out of the last two mesh – this is the most durable and longest lasting border option. They are doubled for added strength and the rope goes through each mesh. Vinyl is a sewn on edging that is good for outdoor use and is a 2” finished edge; Webbing is the strongest of the two sewn on edging and gives the net a nice, clean finished look but will break down the fastest outdoors. Grommets can be set into the vinyl and webbing edges and are stronger when set in webbing.

Depends on the application: indoor netting the W420DBLK-1” or the W420W-1” is recommended; outdoor barrier netting the K18T-1” or the W252T-7/8” are recommended; for outdoor impact or strong barrier netting the W420T-1” works well but will mark up the golf balls. For a non-marking outdoor golf net the W420DBLK-1” or W420W-1” (Both with Clear Coat treatment) is recommended.

How long does it take to receive my order?
Typical lead time before the orders can ship depends on several factors. For example treated nets take longer as they need to be treated and need time to dry. Nets with sewn on borders take longer than netting with rope edging as the sewn borders tend to take a bit longer. Larger orders tend to take longer than smaller order. The time of year is also a factor – January and February are the busiest times of the year due to baseball netting order in anticipation of spring training. Most orders can ship within 2 – 3 weeks, while others may take 4 – 6 weeks. Please see our list of in stock items that can ship in 24 hours.
