Bird Netting

Installing a bird net is based on installing a wire perimeter around the area to be proofed and then attaching the net to the wire. To
fix a straining wire, main fixings must first be installed every 10m and wherever the wire will change direction. Intermediate fixings
should be installed at appropriate intervals for the bird species being proofed against. Start a new run of wire from
each main fixing – the wire is to be looped through the eye of the main fixing at one end and secured in place using 2 ferrules or
2 wire rope grips. At the other end, the wire should be looped through the eye of a hook/eye barrel strainer. The hook end of the
strainer should then be attached to the eye of the main fixing and the wire tensioned accordingly. Tensioned cross-wires may be
required for runs over 10m. To start fitting the net, first, use a cable tie to attach the corner of the net to a corner fixing. From there
every mesh should be hog ringed to the wire, ensuring the net is tight and square
