 Frequently Asked Questions!

Is all paintball netting the same?

No, all paintball netting is not the same. This is a very confusing issue for a lot of netting buyers. Most everyone assumes all paintball netting is the same and just searches for the cheapest price. We here at urge you the buyer to beware. Make sure what you are getting is an actual demolition curtain style netting and not a shade cloth. Also make sure your netting is UV and outdoor treated. Without this your netting will only last a few months outside before deterioration begins. You also have the right to documented ASTM test paintball netting. If your supplier cannot provide documentation, your netting has not been properly tested. We invite you to call us and see why we offer the best paintball netting available.
