Anti-hail net is manufactured weaving a plastic monofilament and is used to cover and properly protect crops from damages caused by hail.
Net must be installed and fixed on special structures to guarantee total protection from bad weather, still maintaining a minimum elasticity to avoid premature material wear.
Material used to make the net is high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Wire used is made by extrusion, melting and passing raw material through perforated grids (extruders); subsequently it is thermostabilized, that is to say heated to reduce all retractions that plastic material exposed to even modest heat sources normally presents.
Anti-hail net is made manufacturing monofilament with a particular technique called “loom weaving”; obtained mesh has a rectangular 2.8 x 8 mm shape and is non-deformable, meaning dimensions don’t change when subjected to hail load.
Net weaving is “Leno weaving”, so mono-wire is woven into weft and warp threads.
Anti-hail net is certified and guaranteed over the time. Documentation is released at purchasing.
In order to avoid thermic damages to net, caused by high temperatures that material might reach when exposed in rolls to sun, it is recommended to avoid net rolls exposure to sun for more than four hours.
