Hi guys
looking for a source, in RI, to buy 12 foot steel pipe to be used as a sides for a backstop barrier.

Big orange and blue stores only go up to 10 ft

needs to be 10 ft from grade, 2 ft buried


any ideas?

Try some fence palaces like Wood and Wire.

They must use larger pipe to build baseball backstops and other industrial projects.

They might be a least able to steer you to a place.

Could go with a 10’ and 2’ and couple them together near ground level.

 

what did you go with for netting?

thanks for all the help guys

 

10' high 40' wide

 

went with 2" black steel pipe (10') coupling then 3' in the ground cemented....

 

strung aircraft cable across the top....hung netting with carabiners...and tied off sides with lacrosse overhands...

 

thing is awesome.

 

can be used as a baseball backstop for the little guy as well as lacrosse backstop and hockey backstop as well.   well worth the weekend of digging and setting up
