Recommendations for installing anti-strip netting
It should be installed completely covering the farm in the case of outdoor crops, supported and fastened to a structure.
To ensure maximum fabric life, it is important to protect the corners to prevent the mesh from rubbing against the structure.
It is important not to over-tension the mesh so that there are no over-tensions that subject the mesh to excessive stresses.
If the netting is removed because it is not necessary, it should be stored indoors and protected from the sun and atmospheric agents such as rain and wind.
