A strong, yet highly flexible 7 x 7 wire rope designed for use in installing and erecting bird netting. Available in either a galvanised or stainless steel finish, this wire provides long-lasting protection against problem birds like pigeons and seagulls.
The tough metal wire cannot be chewed through by pests and will withstand the elements for effective bird proofing. Sold in 100m and 200m lengths, and either 1.5mm, 2mm, or 3mm thicknesses to suit all your requirements.
Check out our bird netting installation guide below for more information.
Installing Bird Netting:
|Drill holes and fit corner fixings where the net turns a corner.||Drill holes and fit intermediate fixings at 1m intervals in a straight line between the corner fixings.||Run 10m of wire rope through the fixings of one side.|
|Attach one end of the wire rope to a corner fixing by looping the wire then secure with 2 ferrules (each crimped twice) or 2 wire rope grips.||Run 10m of wire rope through the fixings of one side.||Hook an open barrel strainer to other corner fixing, thread the free end of the wire through the eye of the barrel strainer pull the rope tight. Secure with 2 ferrules or wire rope grips, then close the strainer to tighten rope.|
|Repeat steps 3-6 for the other 3 sides.||To install the net, attach one corner of the net to the corner fixing using a corner tie.||To install the net, attach one corner of the net to the corner fixing using a corner tie.|
For nets larger than 10m x 10m:
The main difference for installing a larger net is that you will need to install corner fixings every 10m to distribute the weight of the net.
You may also need to install additional cross wires to prevent the net from sagging in the middle e.g. 20m x 10m nets.
