What to know about the Best bracket for golf net?

Installing nets to protect solar panels is a proactive and effective measure to ensure the efficiency, safety, and longevity of solar installations. By carefully selecting the right nets, planning the installation meticulously, securing the nets properly, and conducting regular maintenance, solar panel owners can maximize protection and optimize energy generation. The benefits of protected solar panels extend beyond financial returns, contributing to a more sustainable future and supporting the global transition to clean and renewable energy. When choosing a bracket for golf net, it is essential to consider factors such as the net's size, weight, and the intended location of installation. The bracket's design, durability, and ease of setup are also important considerations. Here are some of the best bracket options for golf nets:

1. Solar Module Mounted Brackets: 

Direct attach brackets are ideal for securing golf nets to corners and sides of the solar module frames. They typically come with pre-drilled holes for easy installation and can support a variety of net sizes. Look for heavy-duty, weather-resistant brackets that are made from durable galvanized steel, and have black powder coated finish for corrosion resistance from the elements


2. Roof-Mounted Brackets: 

Roof-mounted brackets are suitable for installations where solar system owners have concerns about solar module warranty being impacted if brackets were secured directly to the module frames. These brackets should have sturdy anchors to the roof in order to support the weight of the net, wind uplift and any impact from golf balls. These are frequently the strongest support brackets.Thinline-support-2a.jpg

3. Carport Edge Brackets: 

Edge mounted brackets are designed to extend from the sides of the carport structure, and hold the net above the solar modules. They hold golf nets independently without the need for support on the solar frames. They are perfect solar carports located near school athletic fields and sports centers.


4. Tensioners for Brackets:

 In order to prevent netting from having a sag that would reduce the net height above the solar panels, tensioners are required between the netting and the support brackets.

5. Commercial-Grade Coating for Bracket Hardware:

In order to avoid corrosion due to salt water and moist environments, all hardware should be corrosion resistant.  Screws and eye-hooks should at least have a galvanized coating, but stainless steel would be the best.


6. Adjustable Bracket Placement: 

Look for brackets with adjustable features that allow you to customize the placement of the brackets. Supports that attach to solar module frames are fixed by necessity, but roof mount supports can be placed freely, at the best location for optimizing the net support.

7. Quick-Release Bracket Connections: 

Some brackets come with quick-release mechanisms, making it easy to set up and take down the golf net quickly. This feature is particularly useful for those who need to remove the nets for cleaning or solar panels.


When selecting brackets for your golf net installation, prioritize safety, durability, and ease of installation. Consider the intended use, location, visual and overall longevity objectives.
