12' x 12' x 55' Frame Kit Here! Constructed from #42 Twine Size knotted HDPE(High Density Polyethylene). For youth through commercial applications, fits in the typical batting cage square seen at most parks & fields. Net is hung on a square, which absorbs the impact of the balls over several meshes with no high spots to accelerate wear. UV & Weather protection is embedded during extrusion , Not a cheap coating that will flake off in a couple of years.Life expectancy is 8 to 10 years. We believe this is the best batting cage for the dollar value on the market today. We are a family business started by my grandfather over 50 years ago. We intend on being in business for another 50 years. We only sell quality, well made products. Polyethylene: Our Polyethylene nets, the UV inhibitors are inside the Polymeric blend that gets extruded into the individual fibers. These fibers are twisted or braided into twine. Since the UV inhibitor is built into the fibers, it can't wear off.
Polyethylene doesn't absorb water, doesn't rot, and loses very little strength year to year. Their Nylon nets are coated with a UV inhibitor which tends to wear off in a year or two. Nylon absorbs water, encouraging mold, mildew, and rotting. Typically a new nylon net used outside in direct sun will lose 15% to 20% of its tensile strength each year.What Twine size do I need? A #42 Twine net is about twice as thick and twice as strong as a #21 Twine. The larger twined, heavier cages will snag balls better, look better, wear better, last longer, and you will be happier with it. You need a minimum of 60 lbs. #18 Twine is a Light Duty Net, 100 lbs.
Generally considered the minimum necessary for a home use batting cage, with light use it could last 2 to 3 years. #21 Twine is a Pretty Good Net, 125 lbs. With moderate use could last 3 to 4 years.
#24 Twine is a Very Good Net, 148 lbs. Can be used for Light commercial or Middle School, should last 4 to 6 years. #36 Twine is a Heavy Duty Net, 190 lbs. Of tensile strength, considered commercial Quality estimated 6 to 8 year lifespan.
#42 Twine is a Very Heavy Duty Net, 220 lbs. Of tensile strength, many pro teams will use this for their cages, good for commercial batting cages. Should last 8 to 10 years. Why do I see such varying tensile strengths for the same size HDPE twine?Some manufacturers tend to exaggerate the strength of their twine, or maybe they are just distributors & don't really know the actual strength. For a #42 HDPE twine size it will vary a little from different manufacturers but it will all be in the low 200s. I have tested #42 HDPE twine from manufacturers samples that is supposed to be over 300 lb. Of load on it, and it breaks.
So you cannot believe everything you read. What does this net weigh? This 12' x 12' x 55' #42 Twine Size 60PLY net will weigh around 95 lbs. One of our main competitors based in England, Net World Sports / Greenbow Sports, their fortress net, same size #42 Twine Size net made out of an inferior material Polypropylene (Which doesn't wear as well as our Polyethylene) only weighs around 60 lbs.Frankly, in my opinion, it is not possible. Their net is approximately the same size and tensile strength as our #24 Twine Size nets. Call or message them about why their nets (Same #42 twine size) weigh so much less than other manufacturers. They know next to nothing about batting cages. What is the difference between square hung & diamond hung mesh? To put it simply, Square Mesh is better. It is a process where the machine tightly weaves a cord around the rope and the net to provide the strongest possible bond betweeen the two.
Some manufacturers will just weave the rope in and out of the netting panels which can result in the rope pulling away from or out of the panels. 55'Length x 12'Width x 12'Height. #42 Twine Size HDPE (60PLY). HD 3/8 Polyethylene Woven and Sewn (Top, Center, and all 4 Corners).
