In-line

Over the past 15 years we have designed and fabricated many pole-supported net backstops for baseball and softball facilities, from little league to Major League. We refined our design over time to simplify the installation process and improve durability & performance.

Let’s get started on your backstop project. We’ll walk you through the process, making helpful recommendations along the way. When your requirements are established, we’ll offer a layout and price estimate for your backstop.

Full Net In-line Systems take your facility up a notch improving safety and sightlines. Detailed drawings ensure your backstop is engineered exactly to your specifications.

  • Most installations can be supported by only 4 poles reducing visual obstructions for spectators
  • Squared net mesh is easier to look through than diamond netting or chain link fencing
  • Net panels can be supported by a permanent cable grid or installed with hardware that allows netting to be raised, lowered, and re-tensioned from the ground
  • Can be less expensive than chain link and are often easier to install
  • We specify the very best materials and components from a select group of fabricators producing materials that have met our stringent requirements for the past 15 years
  • Designed to be flexible enough to accommodate a wide selection of net heights and lengths

Tie-back

The Beacon approach to tie-back design is simple —simplify installation, simplify net raising & tensioning, and simplify net removal for off-season storage. With Beacon, design matters. Good design controls project costs and assures excellent product performance.

Let’s get started on your backstop project. We’ll discuss dimensions, site conditions, pole location, planned wall design, and net material options. With this information, we can quickly provide a design layout and price quote for your project.

Tie-Back Net Systems leave NO sightline obstructions giving your fans a perfect view. Design matters. Your backstop design will be engineered precisely to control costs while delivering optimum performance.

  • All support poles can be located beyond or behind spectator seating, meaning there are NO sightline obstructions
  • Pole foundations can be positioned to minimize interference with existing or planned structures (dugout, backstop wall, bleachers, etc.)
  • Net panel can be raised, lowered, and tensioned … all from the ground
  • Tie-back design can be integrated with any type of base wall, including a radial layout

After a great deal of debate we ultimately chose Beacon’s in-line system for our backstop at our baseball and softball fields. And we are very glad we did. The sightlines are outstanding — a 100% improvement over our old traditional chainlink backstops. We would recommend Beacon to anyone building a new complex or modeling an existing one.”
