Custom Netting Timeline

Hi,
Need to know how quickly I can get a custom size net.
Thanks,
Glen

——————————————–
Hi Glen,
Thanks for inquiring about our netting. Our standard timeline for fabrication is about 10 business days. We may be able to get the timeline down to about 5-6 business days for a fee. We would put the order into the front of the production line. Please let me know if this would be an option.

Thanks,
Cory

Support Forum: Cage for Backyard

I’m interested in a batting cage for my backyard including the frame and netting.
Thanks,
Jeff

————————————
Hi Jeff,
Thanks for inquiring about our products. I would need to know the size of the cage you wanted. I would recommend using an in-ground system for the frame. This would be the most durable and also it would be able to hold up in windy conditions. The system uses ground sleeves that are anchored into the ground and the upright sections just slide into the ground sleeves. This would allow you to remove the frame if you ever needed to get it out of the way. Let me know about he size and I can get you a quote. Also if you have a preference on the netting material let me know.
Thanks,
Cory

Support Forum: Electric Retractable System

Hi,
I’m interested in an electric system for our netting.
Thanks,
Anthony

Hi Anthony,
It was nice speaking with you. Per our conversation, if you could please send several photos of the area the cage will go – this will enable us to provide a more firm quote. We may also need some measurements, but pictures are a good starting point.

Please find some more info about our company and the Aircage, here:

Hi Anthony,
Thanks for the pictures. I do have a few questions:

-Will the cage run perpendicular to your beams?

-What is the “on-center” spacing of your beams?

-Do your lights hang below the beams?

-What is the distance between the hoops when they are all raised in the air?

Thanks again.
Chad

Support Forum: Indoor Batting Practice Portable Cage

I saw in your facility photos of the new Nebraska Baseball/Softball facility that there is an on field style batting cage shell on wheels designed for indoor facilities. (Picture 108 in the Nebraska Album) Is this something that you sell as I did not see it on your website? If so how much?

Thanks
Mike

Hi Mike,
Thanks for inquiring about our equipment. We do sell the system you saw in the picture. Unfortunately we don’t have the pricing listed on the website since each unit is customized for the facility. We would need to know the size of the shell net you wanted along with the number of dividers and some general specs on your building (distance from wall to wall for the cable lines, type of walls (e.g. concrete or steel frame). If you could, please provide the requested information. Sketches are always helpful as well but not necessary. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks again,
Cory

Support Forum: Custom Golf Netting

Hello, I am looking to receive a quote for two separate sizes of golf barrier netting. Net thickness undetermined, shipping to 76544.

QTY 12 @ 20′H x 50′L

QTY 11 @ 33′H x 50′L

All nets will be made of 1″ mesh, knotless polyester golf netting with 5/16″ double braided border sewn into the netting. UV treated for sun and weather resistance. Black in color.

Thank you,
Tom

Hi Tom,
Thanks for inquiring about the golf netting. We have two materials available for custom golf nets, #18 Nylon and #36 Nylon. The #18 is about 1.9 mm thick and the #36 is about 2.5 mm thick. Both standard nets come in the color white. The only way we can make the netting black is by adding a latex dip treatment which will also help to extend the life-span of the net. Please let me know which thickness you would prefer. The nets also have the UV inhibitor added as a standard feature.

Our nets have a 7/8″ mesh which is recommended for direct impact since balls can go through the 1″ mesh. Also the border rope on the perimeter is 3/8″ which isn’t much different from the 5/16″. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Cory

Support Forum: FlexCages

I am interested in your FlexCages. Are all of them kept in stock? Can you send me a drawing or picture that shows where the standard baffle is placed, and where any additional baffles would be placed if I ordered them?

Thanks,
Ryan

Hi Ryan,
Thanks for inquiring about our FlexCages. These nets are kept in stock unless otherwise specified on each individual net listing. But again they are almost always available. The standard door location if the net length runs north to south is on the southwest corners on the short 12′W or 14′W end. Also the baffle is placed on the same end as the doorway. The standard baffle and doorway will always be on the same end since most people prefer the baffle and doorway to be located on the same end. We can place additional baffles in any location but most people prefer to have them loose since they can move the baffle to create smaller play areas inside the tunnel. For instance a 70′L x 14′W tunnel can be split into (2) 35′L x 14′W play areas if the baffle is placed directly in the middle of the tunnel. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,
Cory

Support Forum: Sliding Batting Cage Net for Basement with Trusses

I am looking at the CurtainCage batting cage. I have an unfinished basement that I would like to put a batting cage in. The longest area I have to work with is 33ft. I am thinking a 30ft cage will work great. I would like to use the floor trusses overhead to attach the cable to, to suspend the batting cage from.

Thanks,
Matt

Using your trusses as anchor points is fine, just keep in mind that this may prevent the batting cage from being able to slide on the cable lines (spanning between the trusses). Ideally the trusses would be positioned perpendicular to the length of the net. We have brackets that should be able to fit in your ceiling, however we would need to see pics of what you have to confirm if they would fit.

Support Forum: Indoor Batting Cage

I have a shop that is about 30x30x17 feet. I’d like to put in a cage that will be used for lacrosse, baseball, and golf. It needs to be retractable because we also use the space for basketball. I need the cables to run as high to the ceiling as possible so the drop down lines look appealing. What do you recommend?

Thanks,
Joel

We have a cable kit that would work. You can view the kit here:
CurtainCage – 55 ft EasySlide Indoor Batting Cage – with LineLift Kit

The cable lines are a larger than your facility dimensions but they can be adjusted to fit your building. As for the netting, most people prefer to have a large net with a baseball size mesh and then add a net with a golf size mesh to sit on the outside of the batting cage net. This will help to keep the cost down since the golf mesh is much more expensive than the baseball mesh. You would need at least 6″ to 1′ of space between the net and any obstructions so the largest size net you could have would be 29′L x 29′W x 17′H with your cable lines hanging around 16′H.

Support Forum: Best Option for Basement Batting Cage Net Setup

I was inquiring about the best set up for a hitting tunnel in my basement. The dimensions of my basement that I would be willing to sacrifice toward the hitting tunnel are 45′ long by 12′ wide by 8′ high. There is a section of this 45′ length (about 25′) that is 9′ high. I would still need to mount lighting (already bought flourescent shop lights to mount to ceiling along the 45′ run). Not sure if it is even feasible to make an affordable hitting area for a 13 year old. I do have additional distance that I could pitch from outside the net through a hole to the batter. Looking for guidance into the best course so I do not destroy my house in the process of making a better hitter!

Thanks,
Tom

Hi Tom,

You will need about 1′ of space between the top of the batting cage net and the lighting. You would want to keep the net height at about 8′ since you want to leave around 1′ of sag on the ground to prevent balls from going out underneath the netting. Please keep in mind that you probably won’t be able to throw from very far away since the net ceiling height would be about 7′ high.

The easiest way to hang the net would be to run cable lines from wall to wall.
