Bird netting is the strongest and most versatile bird exclusion system in the world! Material: Ultra-violet stabilized polyethylene plastic. Construction: 3 x 2 ply. Three groups of two strands are wrapped into a tight, rope-like group of six. Breaking Strength: 48 pounds per strand . Size: Mesh available in 3/4', 1-1/8', 2', 4' and 6'. Install Bird netting bird exclusion products in any bird pressure area. Any enclosed or semi-enclosed area, opening or building configuration where pest birds need to be excluded. Also useful for pest bird exclusion in airplane hangars and on rooftops or outdoor courtyards as well as aquaculture and agricultural applications.
How It Works:
Bird netting consists of high density polyethylene twine that is twisted and knotted to form a strong impenetrable bird barrier to pest birds. The coloring (Black, Beige & Milky White) and U.V. treatment are embedded in the composition, making the bird net more resistant to the effects of the sun with a more consistent coloring throughout.
A cable support structure is installed on the structure with steel attachments applicable to the substrate
The bird netting is then stretched tight and attached to the cable support structure with steel bird net rings, forming a tight, solid, impenetrable bird barrier to humanely exclude the targeted pest bird species.

The twine is knitted into sheets on a net-making machine. A pressure of 5 tons is then applied to the net to stretch it into squares. The net is then heat set in an enclosed system at a temperature of 200 F for 3 minutes.
Standard mesh sizes are 3/4', 1-1/8' and 2', but other mesh sizes can be manufactured. Nets can be custom made in any length or width. For ease of installation, corners and long sides are marked. StealthNet is available in stock colors of Black, Stone (beige) and Translucent, with White available by special order.
Six strands of polyethylene, each 12/1000' (hence the name 12/6), are wrapped rope-like into one strong, rot-resistant, U.V. protected twine. With a breaking strength of 44 lbs per twisted strand, StealthNet is the strongest polyethylene netting available in the world. StealthNet's U.V.-treatment and color pigmentation are embedded in the composition (not just dipped), making the net more resistant to the effects of the sun with a more consistent coloring throughout. Flame-retardant netting is now available through special order.
Softening point in the region of 250 F.
Effect of High Temperature
Melting point in excess of 270 F. Burns with difficulty. May be heated for short periods up to 600 F.
Effect of Low Temperatures
Polyethylene retains its flexibility at very low temperatures and does not become rigid under freezing conditions.
Burns slowly in air (ASTM Test 1.0?/min); fine filaments tend to melt and drop away before propagating a flame.
Polyethylene, a paraffin hydrocarbon, is chemically inert and is highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals at ordinary temperatures. It does not rot or absorb water. Polyethylene fibers have a high resistance to acids and alkalids at all concentrations, but are attacked by nitric acid. Insoluble in most common organic solvents at room temperature.
Polyethylene is an outstanding electrical insulator, especially to high frequency currents.
Insects and Micro-organisms
The fibers are not ingested by insects and are completely resistant to bacteria, mildew and other micro-organisms, making them virtually rot proof.
Effects of Wind
Wind passes effortlessly through StealthNet, although smaller mesh sizes are effected by wind to a larger degree.
