Feb 22, 2018Three Sports Netting Innovations
Safety netting is now extending further down the first and third base lines for the fans’ protection. That’s why C&H Baseball is helping facility managers and groundskeepers easily raise and lower their netting, which can improve fan and player interaction and better prepare a facility for other uses, like a concert. There is no longer a need for a lift because one person on the ground now operates the netting system’s controls.
In 2017, C&H Softball won Coaching Management’s Excellence in Innovation GOLD Award for Softball Facilities with their Dura-Net DV12.5 Softball Backstop Netting. This is the only netting in the industry specifically designed and manufactured for softball backstop and barrier netting. The net is thinner, knotless and the mesh size (square size of the net) is 2-1/2″ rather than the traditional 1-3/4″ square. A larger square mesh means less material, so the price is lower. Plus, spectators can see the game better as there is less distraction from the net.
Netting has traditionally been black, but C&H Baseball now has a variety of colors to choose from. They even provided the new blue nets for the Kansas City Royals, and also offer “backstops in the new green,” which is recommended by Major League Baseball.
C&H Baseball has been one of the industry’s most trusted names in baseball field equipment, backstop netting, and stadium padding design, production, and installation for 50 years. The company strives to provide quality American-made products using American raw materials and labor.
