Lift & Tension Barrier Netting

Illinois Wesleyan University | Bloomington, IL

Beacon Athletics Netting Illinois WesleyanFounded in 1850, this small, well-regarded liberal arts college made a major investment in their facilities with the renovation of Tucci Stadium, home to their football, lacrosse and track teams. Among the larger aspects of the renovation project was the installation of new field turf as well as a new barrier netting system that would provide protection to the area around the field.

Their primary goal was to contain stray lacrosse balls from every shot angle, so a 15-foot high inline lift & tension barrier system with 1-3/16″ square lacrosse mesh netting would give them the protection they needed, but also afford them the flexibility to easily take down and remove. The ability to easily adjust tension from the ground would also ensure very little sag between poles, while maintaining clean lines and the professional aesthetic they valued.
