The ball stop net is as indispensable to the standard equipment of a hockey field as corner flags, goals and demarcation lines. This is very necessary, as the small plastic balls can reach speeds of 90 mph and spectators could be seriously injured by them. It is therefore essential to be able to rely on the ball-stopping and safety properties of a good ball net on the training ground.
When the Shot Misses the Mark…
Safetynet365 offers the hockey catch net in the material thicknesses 3 mm and 4 mm and also in different colors. An inconspicuous color like black or grey thereby provides the best view for professional matches. Here, the following rule naturally applies: the thicker the net, the better its energy absorption. As a rule, 3 mm suffices in the area of youth and amateur sports, while 4 mm is more suitable for high-speed professional games. The 45 mm mesh size can at all events withstand the 160 g hockey ball with a diameter of 7 cm.
In most cases, the ball net for hockey fields is installed on fixed ball fence constructions. This offers the advantage that they can be easily anchored and measured there. Depending on the specific match or training situation, the field is completely fenced in or equipped with boards along the longer sides and ball fences at the goal ends. However, field hockey goals can also easily be covered with Safetynet365's hockey nets.
Installing a Ball Stop Net is Child’s Play
All the ball nets available from Safetynet365 are of tested quality – including our hockey nets. Their properties speak for themselves: due to the UV-stability and weather-resistance of the synthetic material polypropylene (which is rot proof and mould proof), the fall safety net renders good service for many years.
