Corner Attachments: Corner attachments are the most important part of a

bird netting

installation. They are used where cables turn corners or where cables end. They withstand a great deal of pressure. There are two important considerations regarding corner attachments – where you install them and which ones you choose. The location of corner attachments is usually quite simple to determine. It is where natural corners fall in the shape of the net or where cables end at a wall.

Our anchors are very strong and great tension can be applied by the system, and the corners will take most of the strain.

Intermediate Attachments: Like the corner attachments, the intermediates also hold the cable to the structure. In this case, however, the job of these fasteners is to hold the cable tight against the wall along the side of the

net

job, so the cable will not blow away and allow birds to enter the

bird-free zone

. If the cable were attached in just the corners, the tension of the

bird netting

would pull the cable away from the walls. The intermediate attachments, when placed every few feet along the run of the cable, prevent this from happening. All of Chirag Netting Solutions intermediate attachments are designed to be strong yet discreet. Different intermediate attachments are available for different substrate materials. Attachments are available for stone, steel, wood, sheet metal and stucco. Hardware is available in stainless steel versions.

Wire Rope Cable: The wire rope cable frames the entire net project and forces the net to take corners on three dimensional jobs. Chirag Netting Solutions wire rope cable is available in stainless steel. The cable is designed to be exceptionally strong, yet very hard to see. The cable may be used under large panels of netting on outdoor, horizontal applications (like over a courtyard), and is especially critical if snow or ice could build up on the netting. The cable is looped at one end through the corner attachment, runs through every intermediate attachment, and is looped at the other end through the turnbuckle.

Turnbuckles: The wire rope cable is tensioned between corner attachments and through intermediate attachments with turnbuckles. These small screw tensioning devices can exert thousands of pounds of tension on the cable, so it must be strong and the corners must be anchored securely. There are three different turnbuckle sizes all of which are available in stainless steel. Small turnbuckles are for cable runs under 25 feet. Medium turnbuckles are used for cable runs between 25 and 75 feet, and large turnbuckles are for cable runs above 75 feet. It is important that the turnbuckle is opened all the way and that the cable is pulled as tight as possible before the loop is crimped to take up as much slack and stretch in the cable as possible. For installations under 10 feet in length, the tensioned cable should not be allowed to run through more than one corner attachment. For installations over 10 feet, turnbuckles must be used for every straight run.

Ferrules: Ferrules are used to secure loops in the cable at each end (at corner attachments). One loop is fastened to a corner attachment; the other loop to an opened turnbuckle. The ferrules are slid onto the cable before the loop is formed and then crushed around the cable with a ratchet crimper. When using the ratchet crimper place the ferrule into the middle or end slot with the narrow part facing up and then crimp down once on each end of the ferrule crushing both ends completely (you must crimp each ferrule twice for a strong hold). Always use 2 ferrules per loop for added strength and reliability of the perimeter cable system. This creates a strong, yet discreet, loop.

Hog Rings: The

bird netting

is fastened to the cable using a special Net Ring tool called as Hog Rings. This tool loops a small piece of metal around the

netting

and the cable. It is easy to use, carries a cartridge of 50 rings, and is the fastest and strongest way of attaching the net to the cable. Use one loop per square of netting. To estimate the amount of Net Rings for the job, multiply the number of net rings per foot by the total feet of cable being used. For example: 2” Net = 6 Net Rings per foot. 3/4” Net = 16 Net Rings per foot. Net rings come packaged 2,500 to a box.

HDPE Nets: Now that the wire rope cable frame is in place, it is time to install the net that best matches your building’s color and

bird control

objectives. The color net you chose should reflect the dominant color of the building. The most commonly used color, and often the most commonly used often the least visible, is black net.

Our nets are designed in standard mesh sizes (size of each square) depending upon the species to be excluded. They are as follows: 20mm, 25mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm

Access To Netted Area: Once the

bird net

is in place, access to the area may be gained with the use of zippers. To install zippers simply set them on top of the installed

bird net

where access is desired. Attach the zipper by hog rings through the cloth of the zipper while grabbing the

bird net

strand as well. Net ring up both sides of the zipper to hold it firmly in place. Finish by unzipping and cutting out the middle net strands.
