Chain link fence backstops provide a durable and economical safety barrier for ballparks with smaller backstops (less than 20’ high). However, chain link fencing is prone to rust and distortion from impact over the span of its life. Also, the chain link obstructs the view for spectators because of the wide gauge of the metal.

Backstop netting, on the other hand, provides a secure lower profile protective barrier that can be more affordable, minimally obstructs the view, and looks professional. Additionally, backstop netting systems can be customized to fit unique venues and designed for broad coverage that spans down the foul line and up to 60’ high. Using our premium Ultra Cross® netting product increases the benefits by providing 95% see-through visibility and exceptional durability, certified through 3rd party testing. Learn more about our new easy-to-install backstop netting systems with integrated wall padding here.

What makes Ultra Cross® protective netting the best?

Ultra Cross® Netting is manufactured with Dyneema®, which is considered the world’s strongest fiber. It is used in making products like bulletproof vests and air cargo nets. Because the fiber is so strong, less material is needed to create the twine. Additionally, Ultra Cross® netting is configured with a braided intersect instead of a knot, which minimizes visible material. The unique intersection eliminates 30-60% strength loss experienced by knotted synthetic fibers. The final product is a low-profile 1.2mm net that does not compromise on strength and durability and provides 95% see-through visibility. Additionally, less material means less weight and that means less stress on your system. This is why Ultra Cross® is the preferred protective netting solution for MLB and MiLB clubs!

How can I guarantee that my safety netting system will withstand my climate conditions?

Sportsfield Specialties netting systems are designed by our in-house engineers based on the practical use, weather, and geological conditions of the installation location. Stamped drawings are available (and required in some applications) to guarantee your system will withstand local conditions. Additionally, Sportsfield offers StormGuard® Multi-Sport Netting Systems, a patented break-away technology designed to prevent extreme weather failures.

What is the best way to safely move soccer goals?

Sportsfield Specialties offers several types of mobility kits for soccer goals. The newest innovation, the Levered Soccer Goal Wheel Kit, is an external system that allows users to conveniently raise and lower their Sportsfield soccer goals using a removable levered handle. In the raised position, the swivel wheels provide effortless maneuverability in any direction with large 8” hard rubber wheels and 9” ground clearance. The wheel kits can remain in place in the up position during play or can be easily removed and stored to prevent unauthorized use. A second option is our SGMobile® integrated wheel kit. This mobility solution includes retractable plastic roller wheels embedded in the front of the goal frame and a mobility handle for ease of transporting. A third popular option is our soccer goal with an integrated skiddable base designed to slide along turf – Not only is there no lifting, but the fully integrated skiddable base is extremely durable, requires little maintenance, and minimizes damage to your turf when dragged.

What is the difference between internal and external tennis post winder?

In an external wind tennis system, the cable and cranking mechanism are on the outside of the post. Alternately, with an internal winder, the tennis net cable is fed into an enclosed mechanism, giving it a more professional aesthetic.

What is Padel?
