Our fruit cage net is the perfect fit if you buy one of our fruit cages. It can be easily placed and stretched over our cages to prevent pest from attacking your crops. This net is our standard fruit cage roof net.
Made from black polyethylene which is less visible than other colours. Our nets are very strong and have high ultra-violet resistance, so will give many years service.
To choose the perfect width, we recommend to add 1m to length and width to allow for overlap.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Our standard off-the-shelf cages are available in 0.25m increments up to a maximum size of 9m x 9m.

Fruit cage net
Had to wait for opportunity to unwrap and was anxious to check because package looked smaller than expected. Have now checked and everything is fine. Many thanks. Will fit during this week.
Generous length supplied, rapid service.
Generous length supplied, rapid service. Easily fitted to the roof area of a homemade 27mm galvanised steel tube and clamp fruit cage, using 'Zip' ties. Would purchase from Knowle Nets again. Rapid service, with the exhortant carriage costs of other suppliers to Perthshire from "darn sarf"! Thank you.

Replacement nets foe a 20 year old fruit cage
Great very helpful five star
purchase of Fruit cage roof
Fine - very speedy delivery and raspberries are now safe from the birds!
The netting arrived quickly. It was good quality, strong net with plenty of stretch, packaged and tied in a way that made placing it onto the roof the cage easy. I purchased 3.5 x 7 mtr for a cage measuring 2.7 x 6mtr which allowed a good overlap all round. I bought 50 S clips for this but found I needed more and Knowle Nets were most accommodating in providing extra. All in all a good product bought at an extremely good price.

Fruit Cage Netting
Good quality netting and generous quantities.
Fruit cage roof netting.
Easy to order. Quicker than stated delivery. Item packed in such a way that it was very easy to open and install. Will definitely order from you again.
Perfect product to protect fruit and vegetables
The soft woven netting is ideal to protect soft fruit and vegetable seedling. Keeps the birds and animals away but let’s in the bees and other useful pollinating insects. The mess is lightweight but robust so should last the entire growing season seems far superior to plastic netting which deteriorates and becomes brittle when exposed to sunlight.
Excellent durable netting should last for years and delivered on time.
