Dyneema® Netting

Dyneema® Netting is the thinnest and strongest netting material on the market. Made of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, Dyneema Netting is up to 15x stronger than steel & up to 40% stronger than aramid fibers at equal diameters. This combination of strength and thin strands provides the best spectator safety and visibility.

#18 Plateena Dyneema® Netting - With a combination of thin strands and 385lbs of break strength, Plateena Dyneema netting has been used in professional sports venues around the globe. Plateena Netting is twisted double-knotted for additional tightness and stability. The strands are black solution dyed for better color stability and UV resistance.

Nylon Netting

Dyneema netting isn’t a fit for every application or budget, so we offer numerous options for nylon netting. Nylon Netting is versatile and strong, using high-grade nylon knotted on the square. Each strand is solution dyed for UV protection before knitting, followed by an additional UV-bonded coating for maximum outdoor longevity.

Common Nylon Netting Options: (Netting #s reference the twine size. The smaller the number, the smaller the twine diameter.)

  • #24 Knotted Nylon- 1 ¾” Square mesh UV treated commonly used for foul ball and outfield netting.

what kind of netting with good breaking strength?

There are two types of materials that netting is typically made of: Nylon and High Density Polyethylene, or more commonly referred to as HDPE.

Nylon netting is ideal for heavy use, indoor cages as it has the strongest breaking strength and is by far the most durable type of netting. Used in most Fishing Nets,MLB and NCAA indoor facilities, Nylon nets provide excellent abrasion resistance and the best overall durability. Consequently, Nylon netting is typically very expensive.

High-Density Polyethylene or HDPE netting can be used in both indoor and outdoor batting cages. Because it does not soak up moisture, HDPE netting will not shrink or rot, and typically retains its breaking strength for a longer duration of time. For added outdoor protection, our HDPE nets incorporate a UV Inhibitor directly into the individual twine-fibers. These UV Inhibitors help the netting resist break down due to exposure to direct sunlight.

While HDPE nets do not have the break strength of Nylon netting, they do offer a more price efficient option for your indoor or outdoor netting needs.
