Most of our netting is made from high density polyethylene monofilament which is black and contains ultra-violet stabilisation additives to a level of 2% which gives a protection of 400kLy. The intensity of UV radiation is measured in kLy (kilo-Langley), a unit of which represents how much UV radiation energy falls on a cm2 per year. In the UK this figure is about 70kLy compared to 220kLy in the Sahara. 

Polyethylene has a temperature range from -100C to +115C. It is chemically inert and does not rot or absorb water. There are various methods used to manufacture nets. We stock three general types of nets, see below.

Extruded Netting


This is the traditional way of making net. The process starts with making the twine. This can be a monofilament but is more usually a multifilament i.e. a number of strands are twisted together. The degree of twist and direction of twist are important factors. We use a Z twist (anticlockwise). The thickness of each filament is specified in Denier (as for tights). We use 600, 800 and 1000 denier filaments and the twines are either 2, 5, 6 or 15 ply.

The twine is wound on to 300 or 400 spools on the net making machine. The net is made by knotting the twine from adjacent spools one row at a time i.e. 300 or 400 knots per row. The knot we use is called a single English knot.

The net is complete when the spools run out or for longer nets new spools are added and the twine joined. As it comes off the machine the net has diamond shaped meshes. However this is generally not useful so the net has to be “squared”.

This involves joining one long edge of the net to the opposite long edge to make a cylinder. The twine and knot used are the same so this join is invisible. This can only be done by hand. The net is then cut diagonally in a spiral round the tube of net then when the net is laid out flat it can be pulled in to a square shape.

Woven Netting

This is a cheaper way of making a net because it is faster and requires no work by hand. The technical term for this type of net is Raschel which is a type of warp knitting in which parallel monofilaments are looped together in a zigzig pattern along the length of the net. Our Woven net is made from two strands of 500 denier filament looped together which is then interlooped at the mesh corners.

The net produced is a diamond mesh. It can not be “squared” so the net can stretch i.e. as opposite corners of the diamond are stretched widthways, the other corners will shrink lengthways. Windbreak is also a Raschel net but has the addition of crossways or weft strands. Our insect net is a standard weave with the weft monofilaments crossing the warp monofilaments at right angles.

Extruded Netting 

This is a two stage process. The polymer is melted and forced through nozzles and cross strands then set at the joints as the material cools. The net is then reheated and stretched both length ways and widthways (Biorientation) to make a lighter weight net. This type of net is much more rigid than other types of net i.e. the meshes do not deform very easily.

Aluminium walk-in cage

Great piece of kit, relatively easy to put up*. Arrived very well packaged and no discrepancies. * instructions were interesting to say the least. Had to reread a few times and didn’t realise the spike was there. Thought it was for something other as stated it was something I required. But besides that kit great

Mixed feelings

Some things were good, but we found lots of others rather frustrating. We needlessly ordered extra ground plates, not realising they were included as standard (why did no-one tell us?). We found the instructions a bit difficult to follow (what is the “front edge” of the door?). Did not know we were going to be supplied with a metal spike to pre-make the holes for the uprights - but it could have been marked to show to what depth it should be driven. There were not nearly enough cable ties (I went and got 50 more for less than £2). We could not understand how to fit the netting round the door catches so they would still work.

Aluminium Walk-in Fruit Cage 4m x 2m

The Fruit cage was easy to put up and looks ok, I would have liked more net clips and ties to save having to purchase more.

4m x 2.25m fruit cage with door.

Well engineered Aluminium structure. Instructions good and the frame went together easily. Generous excess of both side and top nettings but a bit parsimonious on the reusable cable ties for attaching the side net to the frame [used extra ties to get the net to hang more evenly]

I found the instructions to be inadequate. The placing of the door hinges should be advanced and made far clearer.
