Q3 SAFETY NETS / ABOUT
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you cut the nets yourself?
Our nets can basically be cut to size. The cut would also have no effect on the adjacent meshes. The material does not untwist any further. In this case the individual strands have to to be cut centrally and not right next to the knot .For nets that are produced with a bordered edge, this would of course be lost at the respective locations. For safety nets (especially for nets according to EN 1263), however, a cut is not advisable.
What color of net is the least conspicuous?
There is no one answer to this question, as it primarily depends on where the net is going to be used. In outdoor areas, darker nets are less noticeable than light-colored ones, as they contrast less with the background. Conversely, from a certain distance a light-colored net can appear like a wall, due to the heightened contrast. The same is true for the view to the outside (e.g. cat nets on the balcony). However, if the net is to be mounted directly in front of a white wall, white would obviously be the best choice.
In the case of thicker safety nets in indoor areas (e.g. staircase nets or loft bed nets), the color does not affect the visibility of the net. Here, you should base your decision on the colors of the surrounding area or on personal taste.
Are safety nets suitable for outdoor areas?
Yes. All the nets we offer are UV-stable and weather-resistant and therefore can be deployed outdoors without any problem.
Which measurement refers to the "length" and which refers to the "width"?
The measurements that need to be stated for the length and width refer solely to the two sides of a rectangle. You can rotate and reverse a net just as you like. It therefore doesn't make any difference which measurement you enter into which field. For instance, you can order a product measuring 300 x 500 cm or 500 x 300 cm. The delivered net or fabric would be the same in both cases.
