How to order fishing or aquaculture nets

 

1) KIND OF YARN:
Nylon twine or braided, Nylon monofilament or multimonofilament, Dyneema®, Polyester, Polypropylene, Polyethylene, etc.

2) COUNT:
To Indicate the thickness of the net. The highest is the tile the higher will be the resistance and the specific weight of the net . Depending on situation it is used:
a) Count of the yarn expressed in decitex, denier or mm of diameter just in case of monofilament nets.
b) Number of plies or strands that make up the twine.

3) MESH SIZE
There are several ways to indicate mesh size. However, we would like to propose to confine only two ways as below in order to avoid confusion.
a) Stretched Mesh in INCH, indicating the distance from the center of one knot to that of an opposite knot in stretched state of net.
b) Half Mesh in MILLIMETRE, indicating the distance from the center of one knot to that of the adjacent knot. This way is called “square mesh”.

4) DEPTH OF NET
Usually, depth of net is indicated by:
a) Number of meshes (as 400 MD)
b) Feet, Meter (as 4 Ft, 4 Mtr.)

5) LENGTH OF NET
This can be indicated by:
a) Number of meshes (as 1000 ml)
b) Meter, Foot, Yard or Fathom
c) Weight (Kg. or Lb.)

6) SELVAGE (Guarding Mesh)
The net can be with or without selvage.
Please specify:
a) Single selvage (means no selvage)
b) “Double selvage” or “Double mesh selvage”
c) Size of twine (same of body net or thicker)
d) Whether the selvage is to be made on top or bottom of the net, or on both sides
e) If you require borders to be put in the netting, please state the following:
1. specification of the twine to be used.
2. where such borders are to be placed: for instance at each 25 mesh, 50 mesh ecc. If you do not specify as to the selvage and border, we understand that the net is to have double selvages on both sides made of the same twine as that of the body net, and to have no borders.

7) TYPE OF KNOT
English Knot (Single Knot)
Double Knot
Raschel Knotless Diamond, Hexagonal, Super Knot Nets

8) COLOUR
Net can be natural white or dyed in any colour.

9) STRETCHING
Net can be stretched depthway or lengthway.

10) FINAL TREATMENT
This can be done with special resin to reinforce quality and to prolongate life of net.

How to order ropes

 

To order ropes, please indicate the following details, if possible:

  1. Fiber: we produce ropes made of all synthetic fibers and sometimes also natural fibers. The kind of fiber depends on the rope use. In any case, if you want a special fiber, please indicate it.
  2. Kind: 3 or 4 strands
  3. Diameter MM: it is the main technical detail linked to the rope resistance. The diameter is the size of rope section, measured by a gauge and expressed in millimeters.
  4. Consistency: it is linked to a “touch effect” and to the rope flexibility (depending on the specific use). Ropes are produced with several kinds of consistency: rigid, semi-rigid, normal, soft (rigid/semi-rigid to get quite a “hard” rope, normal/soft to get a more flexible and handy rope).
  5. Color: the standard rope is white. In any case, a wide range of colors is available. We can also produce a color according to your sample.
  6. Quantity: it is the quantity needed, usually expressed in meters or Kg. When required, it is possible to supply already cut ropes in pieces of the length needed.
  7. Packaging: ropes are usually sold in cops of several standard size. If you need special packaging, please indicate it.
  8. Use: if possible, please indicate the kind of use, so that we can suggest you the item that best fits your application.
How to order sewing threads

 

To order sewing threads, please indicate the following details, if possibile:

  1. Fiber: we produce sewing threads made of all main synthetic fibers: nylon, polyester, Dyneema®, polypropylene, aramid and para-aramid fiber. The kind of fiber depends on the sewing to carry out. In any case, if you want a special fiber, please indicate it.

  2. Count: it is the main technical detail of the thread. It indicates the thread diameter, so its resistance. It can be expressed in several measurement units, linked to the thread specific weight: dtex, label, metric number, etc. If you don’t know the count, please indicate the needle size used to sew or its application.

  3. Color: The sewing threads are available in a wide color range, collected in 3 standard colour cards for the sectors of: clothes, peltry/footwear sewing threads and footwear braids. Thanks to our lab and inner dyehouse we can produce custom colours according to your requirements.

  4. Packaging: sewing threads are usually sold in bobbins or king spools of various standard sizes. If you need a special packaging, please indicate it.

  5. Quantity: it is the quantity needed, usually indicated in pieces (number of king spools of a certain length) or in Kg.

  6. Use: if possible, please indicate the kind of use, so that we can suggest you the item that best fits your application.
How to order braids

 

To order braids, please indicate the following details, if possible:

  1. Fiber: we produce braids made of all synthetic fibers and sometimes also natural fibers. The kind of fiber depends on the braid use and the breaking load required. In any case, if you want a special fiber, please indicate it.
  2. Kind: it is the braid look and can be “round” or “flat”. The braid can also be simple or double (much more resistant)
  3. Working: “Granito” or “Sebino”. The braid is interlaced in 2 ways to get a smooth tow texture (“Sebino”) or raised texture (“Granito”)
  4. Diameter MM: it is the main technical detail, directly linked to the braid resistance. The diameter is the braid section, measured by a gauge and expressed in millimeters.
  5. Core: Braids are produced with or without a core. Braids with a core usually have a superior resistance.
  6. Consistecy: it is linked to a “touch effect” and to the braid flexibility (it often depends on the specific use). It also depends on the presence of the core. Standard consisencies are: rigid, semi-rigid, normal and soft (rigid and semi-rigid to get quite a “hard” braid, normal/soft to get a more flexible and handy braid).
  7. Color: the usual standard color for braids is white. In any case, a wide range of colors is available. We can also produce a color according to your sample. Moreover, it is possible to get braids with colored “hints”.
  8. Quantity: it is the quantity needed, usually expressed in meters or Kg. If required, it is possible to supply braids already cut in pieces of the size needed.
  9. Packaging: braids are normally sold in bobbins of several standard size. If you need special packaging, please indicate it.
  10. Use: if possible, please indicate the kind of use, so that we can suggest you the item that best fits your application.
How to order footwear braids

 

To order footwear braids, please indicate the following details, if possible:

  1. Fiber: we produce footwear braids made of the two main synthetic fibers normally used for these applications: high tenacity nylon and polyester. However, polyester HT is the most widespread fiber on the market.
  2. Diameter: it is the main technical detail of the braid, directly linked to its resistance. There are several diameters from 0.6 mm to 1.6 mm, according to the needle used to sew and its application.
  3. Color: the footwear braids are available in a wide range of colors, collected in a standard colour card. Thanks to our lab and inner dyehouse, we can produce a color sample according to your requirements.
  4. Finishing: the braids are available in several finishings, particularly fit for sewing machines and hand-made sewing. We have natural braids, lubricated braids for machine sewing, semi-waxed and waxed braids for “Ideal” and “Blake” sewing, waxed braids for hand-made sewing. If you are not sure about the kind of braid, please indicate the sewing machine or the sewing you want to carry out.
  5. Packaging: braids are usually sold in reels or flanged bobbins of several standard size.
  6. Quantity: it is the quantity needed, usually expressed in pieces (number of bobbins of a certain length) or Kg.
  7. Use: if possible, please indicate the kind of use, so that we can suggest you the item that best fits your application.
