Custom Curtain Cage

I am thinking of putting a batting cage in my basement for my two children and I was trying to find out some pricing information. I have a limited space to work with and a low ceiling. A rough estimate of the dimensions are as follows: 6.5′ high, 10′ wide, 30′ long. I was interested in the curtain cage concept so that I could slide the net out of the way when it is not in use. I am currently planning on only using plastic balls so the net would not have to be super heavy duty. Also the net might need to be small enough to be used with the small golf ball sized plastic balls used in some pitching matches. If you could provide some type of estimate based on those dimensions and details, I would greatly appreciate it. If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks,
Jim

Hi Jim,
Thanks for inquiring about our netting. You will need about 6″ to 1′ of space between the net and the ceiling and walls. So if your ceiling is 6.5′H the net will need to be at least 6″ below it along with 1′ of sag on the ground so the total height should be about 7′. Please confirm that this would be sufficient space for the net (the dimensions would be 30′L x 10′W x 7′H). Also how old are your children and please provide the zip code where the net would be shipping.

Thanks again,
Cory

Cory,
Thank you for the quick reply. I think the 7′ would be sufficient. My children are 9 and 6 and the ship to zip code would be 43026. If you need any additional information please let me know.

Thanks,
Jim

Hi Jim,
In order for the net to slide like a curtain, it needs to be run on cable lines (3 for your width). The cables would run parallel with the length of the net so please let me know the distance from wall to wall and the types of walls you have (cinder block, drywall with studs). If it is a drywall you most likely would need to place some wood headers between the studs since the studs would not line up with the cable lines.

Thanks,
Cory

Cory,

The distance from wall to wall is actually only 28′. Apparently I was off a little in my original estimation. One wall is cinder block and the other wall is exposed studs, so it shouldn’t be a problem to put wood headers in there.

Thanks,
Jim

Hi Jim,
Do you think you’d be able to provide a sketch of the building? I should be able to get you some initial pricing.

Thanks,
Cory

Sliding Batting Cages

Hi,
I have a few questions regarding sliding batting cages. I am looking to purchase one for my high school team and would like some assistance. Thanks.
Mark

——————————————–
Hi Mark,
Thanks for inquiring about our equipment. The best starting spot for the CurtainCage could be to get the dimensions of the area where the system will be installed. We would need to know if there are any obstructions that would interfere with the cable lines. I just called and left a message since it may be easier to discuss this over the phone. You can reach me at the number listed below.

Thanks again,

Backyard Net

I’m looking for netting that will keep balls (soccer, football, etc.) from going into the neighbors yards (almost daily). They will not take abuse at all short of the SoCal sunshine. What do you recommend, and do I need to provide poles, or do you sell these too.
Thx Tim

——————————————–
Hi Tim,
Sure we can provide a net for your yard. Please let me know the distance it needed to cover (length x height). We can provide poles or you can get them yourself. The correct size will just depend on the height of the net. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks again,

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:

Thanks again.

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
