Further product specifications
Our cricket trackway is manufactured from heavy gauge aluminium, providing an incredibly hard wearing system that can incorporate crossovers and curves, all hung from bespoke bracketry, giving a great deal of flexibility to your sports hall design.
The netting is manufactured from 50mm knot to knot 2mm thick, white, twisted polypropylene, alternatively it can be 40mm knotless 2mm thick, white polypropylene, both with salvaged edges all round and a bound leading edge. We recommend side and back sightscreens to stiffen side netting, create a visual division between the batsman and aid in sighting of the ball. Screens should be fitted with lanyard cords to prevent the nets from stretching. We would also recommend that a bowlers end net with a minimum 3m high sight screen is installed to aid sighting of ball and increase safety. All netting, sight screens and bags should be flame retardant treated to BS 5867 part 2. Our storage bags allow for the nets to be stored away safely when they’re not in use.
