Promats Athletics’ ‘invisible netting’ protects baseball fans

April 21st, 2016 / By: / Industry News

Fans in 10 Major League ballparks are being protected by barely visible netting systems developed and installed by Promats Athletics, using netting manufactured by NET Systems made with Black Dyneema® material.

At their 2015 winter meetings, Major League Baseball executives announced recommendations for extended screens to protect fans from batted or thrown balls and other hazards inherent with game play.

Developed by DSM Dyneema of Greenville, N.C., Dyneema fiber features strength, light weight and durability, even with prolonged exposure to UV light, rain and other elements. Promats Athletics’ netting uses the Ultra Cross knotless-braid system manufactured by NET Systems with Black Dyneema fiber.

Salilsbury, N.C.-based Promats Athletics has exclusive access to NET Systems’ Ultra Cross knotless netting made with Black Dyneema for the baseball stadium market in the U.S. The company is a direct manufacturer of protective wall padding, windscreen, digital graphics, tension netting systems and athletic equipment and has designed, manufactured and installed custom protective padding and products for gyms, schools, recreational facilities, major stadiums and arenas.

Nor’Eastern Trawl Systems, known as NET Systems, is located on Bainbridge Island, Wash., and designs and produces trawl nets, trawl doors and other fishing equipment.
