This innovative net is made of UV stabilised PET monofilaments, woven into a double twisted hexagonal mesh, with specific and unique characteristics. Net pens fabricated from Hope Net provide optimum conditions for the growth of many fish species, in addition to reducing the whole life costs of the net enclosure.
1. Highly resistant to predators attacks – only a single net is required.
2. Provides enhanced escape prevention – even if damaged.
3. Significantly reduces biofouling.
4. Requires up to 3x less cleaning than traditional polymer net pens.
5. It hardly unravel or unzip – even if damaged.
6. Semi-rigid barely deformable structure – withstands ocean forces .
The “waterline” around the uppermost edge of the net pen is fabricated to enable simple and rapid assembly with various models of floating cage collars. Jump net can be supplied pre-assembled if required.
The “Bottom Line” around the lowermost edge of the net pen also enables efficient anchoring with sinker tube. Deformation is reduced and the risk of tearing is minimised due to the inherent semi-rigid structure and high tensile strength of the net.
Standard net pens can be delivered fully assembled thereby reducing on-site operations whether on or off-shore.
Hope Net net pens are lightweight, robust, strong and highly resistant to mechanical damage during installation, relocation, cleaning and fish harvesting
The surface of the PET monofilaments is very smooth, enabling the mesh to resist
Thanks to these properties, Hope Net can be left into water for several years, without the use of antifouling paints.
The PET monofilaments are chemically stable and inert. Moreover, Hope Net practically does not absorb water and the weight of the net remains constant throughout its service life
