In communities with solar homes on golf courses, safety and protection of solar panels are paramount. Whether you live next to an active fairway, or barely in range of amateur ‘slicers’, your solar panels can be at risk of damage due to golf ball impacts.
That's where Solar Barrier Netting comes into play. These specially designed nets and supports act as reliable shields, safeguarding your solar panels and equipment from impact damage. We provide training, tools and installation recommendations for your new protective netting, providing you with the ultimate guide to making informed choices for protecting your solar investment. Golf is a thrilling and challenging sport loved by millions worldwide. However, the inherent nature of the game, with powerful swings and unpredictable ball trajectories, can pose risks to your home and solar system. Impact by stray golf balls have the potential to cause injuries or damage to glass surfaces of solar modules, leading immediate reduction of solar production, and likely eventual failure of the entire system due to water penetration.
Solar GolfNet's three essential elements:
- Protective nets to exactly match your solar array layout. Reinforcement ropes are added to the solar netting to minimize sag.
- Steel support brackets that are designed to minimize shade on solar modules. Supports are available for attachment to the solar module frame, or to the roof surface.
- Tension Chains with carabiners enable selection of the best chain length for optimized net tension.
With our state-of-the-art technology, we have developed a golf net system that not only safeguards your valuable solar panels but also provides you years of peace of mind. Finally, you can enjoy the front row scenery from your golf course home, without continual concern about your solar system being damaged. Our robust and durable golf net system ensures that stray golf balls never pose a threat to your investment. By seamlessly integrating the netting system with supports attached to panel framework, we have created a visually pleasing and functional solution that maximizes both safety and aesthetics.

All netting causes some loss of sunlight due to shading of the solar panels. That is a key priority with Solar Nets. Our black nets, with UV stabilization testing shows higher loss of energy production. Alternatively, the white nets testing shows lower losses. Losses may vary due to variables like, slope, azimuth and solar panel type.
Selecting the appropriate Golf Barrier Netting requires consideration of several factors, including reinforced net material, supports to hold net height, and robust installation methods. High-quality nylon materials offer excellent durability, UV and weather resistance. The 18” net height is sufficient to effectively repel even direct hits, while the installation methods ensure a secure and stable barrier.
Consulting with experienced solar companies specializing in golf netting solutions can help you make informed decisions tailored to your specific needs and preferences. Golf Barrier Netting is more than just a protective measure; it displays a realistic understanding that golf ball damage can be a real threat to solar homes on golf courses.
Investing in Solar GolfNets ensures a safer and more enjoyable golf course home experience for all. Embrace the confidence that comes with knowing you've taken the necessary steps to protect your solar investment.
But that's not all - our Solar Golf Net is designed to withstand the harshest weather conditions, ensuring year-round protection for your solar panels.
