A 1/2″ border rope is used for the border. It is also attached to our patented custom Crimp Lock® system

What direction does the liner go when the net is being installed?
We install the liner upwards in order catch tiny pieces of debris.
Shrink Netting Questions

Once the shrinking net
has been completely installed, simply saturate the net with water and allow it to dry completely.

Our shrinking nets will shrink to an average of 80% of the length after being watered.

What size does it come in?
Like all of our nets, there is no “standard size”. To accommodate the wide range of requests we receive, all of our shrinking nets are hand-made and come in custom sizes.
Debris Netting Questions
We are replacing the railroad ties on a bridge. What kind of debris nets do you have for this?
We at Pucuda Leading Edge are trained to ask key questions to all perspective clients as the safety of your workers is our absolute #1 priority. The first question we would ask would be “Is there a chance someone could fall into the debris net?” If the answer is “Yes”, the only net we will provide is our #300 Series Double Strand safety net. If the client still wants the “debris net”, we will discuss what netting is capable and not capable of doing. However, safety is our #1 goal, even if it means saying “No”.
I have a project that needs to be netted as the facade is deteriorating and do not have the budget to fix by means of masonry restoration. Do you have any materials to fix the problem?
Yes, we have several netting solutions to help you with your building. Our patented 2OTS is a 2″ mesh material that shrinks to stabilize loose or granular items from falling when it becomes wet. It can be combined with our 18k debris liner to catch particles less than 1/8″.
Another solution would be our 30k netting with 18k debris liner. This product has the same openings has our 2OTS but is more cost effective and can handle most conditions.
