New Jason Gillespie Indoor Cricket Centre in Adelaide

We are currently in the process of making one of the largest single Nets we have ever constructed.

The video below shows hand making nets for the new Jason Gillespie cricket practice centre being installed at the Ice Arena in Adelaide. When finished this will be one of Australias biggest and best indoor cricket practice centers and we are very excited to be involved in this project.

We will post photos and a video when its finished.

Below is a news report of the original Lehamnn and Gillespie centre we installed in Jamestown a number of years ago. See more of our Cricket Nets

Bird Enclosure for Minton Farm Animal Rescue Centre

Here at Advanced Nets we do quite a bit of work for animal shelters and other environmental uses as you can see here http://www.advancednets.com.au/environmental-nets.html.

Recently, the Minton Farm Animal Rescue Centre in South Australia http://www.mintonfarm.com.aucontacted us looking for us to design and install a Bird Netting for Miru, a wedge tailed eagle who was brought to them after its mother was shot. The enclosure is large enough to allow Miru to walk and fly around inside.

The refuge has emerged from a community need for animal and bird rescue and rehabilitation. The project funding relies entirely on volunteers and donations to operate. Your kind support will help to improve the quality of life for 100′s of native animals and birds for future generations to enjoy, not just as extinct exhibits in museum.

Whilst we were inside the enclosure Miru put on a bit of a show for us as you can see in the videos below…

Bird Proof Netting Protecting Your Electricity Supply

There are a lot of things you don’t think about when you turn on your electricity. Power can go out for a number of reasons including storms and extreme heat during summer (as often happens here in Australia!). One thing you probably didn’t know is that something as simple as a bird landing in the wrong place at the substation could take out the power for an entire suburb and things could be even worse if birds were to actually nest inside a vital component.

Advanced Nets were called in to work with the state power supplier in order to bird proof a large substation in South Australia and this presented us with a number of challenges.

The main challenge of this job was installing bird netting to protect all the individual parts of the facility whilst still providing easy access for employees to maintain the equipment. The best way to do this was to manufacture one large net to cover the entire outside of the facility therefore stopping birds from getting anywhere near it whilst also having no impact on access to equipment for workers.

The trouble with installing such a large net structure in the middle of an open area centered on making such a huge freestanding structure it sturdy to withstand the weather and especially the strong winds which can blow across the land because it it collapses the outcome could disastrous.

Next… How do we install such a large net over electrical equipment without causing damage or cutting off the supply?

Through a combination of posts and tensioned rigging the job was completed on time and everybody was pleased with the finished result which you can see in the photos below. This job was completed in 2006 and not one single bird has got through.

Fully Enclosed Sports Area – Cricket Nets

,

cricket netsThis is a fully enclosed netted sports area installed in a customers back yard and custom built to their requirements.

Similar to an installation we completed at a mine site in the Australian Outback, the structure is permanent and designed to withstand all weather including the harsh UV of the sun. Find out why this is important here.

The sports netting features a heavy duty double zipped entrance the same as we install in our professional indoor cricket nets and is also tensioned perfectly to stop balls but not have them fling back at full speed.

This is just one example of the range of fixed and retractable sports netting options we can construct in your garden. Whether its a simple net to stop the football or cricket ball from going over the fence, a baffle net to protect the windows on your house from being smashed by a ball, or a custom multi-sports setup for cricket, golf or tennis, we can create something just right for your needs.

cricket netsWe don’t just do the nets either. We handle everything from the construction of the playing area, concreting, laying artificial turf and professional installation of posts, goals and fencing.

Contact us for more information or to arrange a quote on a custom sports area at your house, otherwise take a look at other areas of the website to get an idea of what we can do in your yard or confined space.

Why is it Important to use UV Stabilized Netting?

The UV levels in Australia are some of the highest in the world. This causes netting, in particular polyethylene netting, to degrade over as little as a year. This means that the netting will break as easily as pulling it apart with your hands as you can see in the video below.

Once the netting reaches the level where it can easily break by hand there is no point in repairing it, instead the netting will need to be replaced. This can become an expensive task when you need to replace something like a tennis net every 2 years but imagine having to replace an entire multi-purpose sports system or worse… Imagine that because of UV damage, a fall arrest safety nets did not function when needed leading to a workplace injury or even a death?

Ultra violet inhibitors are added during manufacture at the point where the net is turned into a yarn. These inhibitors have been developed and improved over time and provide a greatly increased lifespan for the netting.

Both Advanced Nets & Ropes and SecureaKat products and installations use maximum UV inhibitors where possible to extend the life of the net and you DO NOT PAY ANY MORE money for your finished installation. We believe that we create the highest quality netting installations in Australia therefore it is our pride and reputation at stake if our netting does not perform as intended for extended periods of time.

In Australia, the polyethylene netting we use has been in use for 10 years and is still functioning today without degradation.

Indoor Cricket Nets Outside at a Mine Site

, ,

cricket nets  The mining industry is one of Australia’s biggest employers with thousands of workers living and working on sites far away from home often in remote    locations. Many workers will stay for weeks and months on end and aside from rolling around in the dust there isn’t much to do in the Australian Outback as you can see in the photos below!

At Advanced Nets and Ropes we were asked to design and create a netted sports system for use on mine sites in order to give workers somewhere to keep  active and have fun when not working. This particular installation features artificial turf, an artificial cricket wicket and is fully enclosed sides and top by tensioned netting in order to provide an area to play indoor cricket whilst outside (the tensioned net acts similar to a wall when hit by a ball). Similar to our Cricket Nets, entry is via a high quality zipped net door.

The finished net structure is permanent and is therefore designed to withstand all weather conditions. The netting is UV protected to the maximum level possible without degrading the quality of the net, in order to protect it against the harsh Australian sun and make it long lasting.

Have a look at some of the other Multiple-Use Sports Arenas and cricket practice net installations we have completed.
