Product Details

Engineered Safety. Uncompromised Visibility.

Ultra Cross® braided and knotless Dyneema® Netting offers engineered safety and uncompromised visibility for spectators in the stands. The braided and knotless design provides the strongest configuration for netting and the super-strong Dyneema® fiber contributes to this product’s excellence in tenacity, UV and chemical resistance, and resistance to abrasion.


Ultra Cross® Field Green Dyneema® Netting

Field Green Ultra Cross® was developed in conjunction with MLB to provide optimal visibility to spectators. The “camouflage” coating color, over durable black Dyneema® twine, was developed to fade into the ballpark backdrop of dirt, turf, and stadium seating. This premium netting provides the same engineered safety and uncompromised visibility as 1.2mm uncoated Black Ultra Cross® while offering the most advanced solutions to achieve spectator satisfaction.

Sportsfield Specialties is the leader in innovative solutions for baseball stadium safety netting. Our popular Custom Egress Gate provides a retractable Ultra Cross® entryway barrier between the stands and the field, which can be raised and lowered easily. This cable suspended system offers distinct visibility advantages over traditional framed structures. During play, the lowered netting protects fans while being nearly invisible.

3rd Party Testing


Ultra Cross® Baseball Impact Test

In March of 2021, Sportsfield Specialties contracted Innovative Test Solutions (ITS) of Schenectady, NY to conduct impact testing on our Ultra Cross® Knotless Netting. Our goal was to see just how many powerful hits our industry-leading product could handle!

To simulate a field installation, a scaled-down netting system model was constructed to replicate a full-scale system. This cable suspended system consisted of four constraint cables, located at each edge of a 10’x10’ 1.2 mm knotless Ultra Cross® Dyneema® netting panel. The net was then lashed to the cables with a combination of zip ties and braided rope. Once the system was in place, a series of standard baseballs was fired at the net from a dramatic 10’ distance using a high-powered pitching machine with ball speeds averaging 100mph. Here are the results:
