Game Bird Netting
We have two products available for game bird flight pens. Flight pen netting is manufactured from high-density UV-protected twisted knotted polyethylene or high-tenacity UV-protected twisted knotted polyethylene.
1) High-Density UV-Protected Twisted Knotted Polyethylene:
Lightweight but very strong, mildew-proof, and will not rot. This product has very low stretch, will not absorb water and is chemical resistant.
Flight pen netting sizes:
- 3/4" square mesh
- 25 foot x 25 foot
- 25 foot x 50 foot
- 50 foot x 50 foot
- 50 foot x 100 foot
- 1 - 3/4" square mesh
- 50 foot x 100 foot
- 50 foot x 150 foot
2) High-Tenacity UV-Protected Twisted Knotted Polyethylene:
High-tenacity netting has a greater strength to weight ratio, and is therefore very suitable for large areas due to low wind resistance (wind sheer) and lower weight per square meter. The filaments used to produce high tenacity netting are double the strength of HD, which allows for the diameter of the filaments to be reduced and results in the same or higher strength than HD. The smaller the filament, the less wind sheer and weight per square meter.
Example: A filament of HD is 1.65mm, while the diameter of a high tenacity filament is 1.3mm. The high tenacity has a higher tensile strength per filament.
Knot Breaking Strength:
- High tenacity: 380 denier x 12 ply = 1.3mm diameter, 92 lb knot breaking strength
- HD: 600 denier x 12ply =1.65mm diameter, 64 lb knot breaking strength
- Comparatively: High Tenacity is 22% lighter and 30% stronger than HD, for the same mesh size
We carry high-tenacity polyethylene in the following mesh sizes:
- 2” square mesh x 380 denier x 21 ply x 1.73mm twine diameter. Knot breaking strength — 141 lb.
- 2 ⅜” square mesh x 380 denier x 21 ply x 1.73mm twine diameter. Knot breaking strength — 141 lb.
- 3 ½” square mesh x 380 denier x 18 ply x 1.6mm diameter, knot breaking strength — 122 lb.
All high tenacity net panels are custom made to customer’s size specifications.
Minimum order for high tenacity netting is $100.
