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