Hail netting plays a vital role in agricultural protection, yet many question how to choose the right type, Raschel or Leno. We’ve analyzed this considering market preferences, manufacturing processes, product characteristics, pricing, and the crucial importance of selecting the appropriate hail netting for effective crop safeguarding.


  • 🌍 Market Preferences:
    In Europe, Leno hail netting is preferred, while in Australia, New Zealand, and the USA, farmers tend to choose Raschel hail netting.
  • 🏭 Manufacturing Differences:
    Leno hail netting is produced using the Sulzer machine from Switzerland, while Raschel hail netting is produced using the Raschel machine, resulting in different manufacturing processes.
  • 📦 Customization and Costs:
    The Raschel machine allows for higher production output, customization in sizes and colors, and lower minimum order quantities, leading to lower costs.
  • 🌱 Product Characteristics:
    Leno nets have thicker monofilaments, offering higher strength and a lifespan of 8 to 10 years. Raschel nets have finer monofilaments with 30% lower strength and a lifespan of 5 to 8 years.
  • 💰 Pricing Differences:
    Leno hail netting is over 20% more expensive than Raschel, with double the minimum order quantity and longer lead times.
  • 🌾 Versatility:
    Raschel hail netting has a broader range of applications, suitable not only for hail protection but also for vineyards and shading purposes.
  • 🌱 Importance of Choice:
    Choosing the right hail netting is crucial for crop protection, and product experts can recommend the most cost-effective solution based on specific needs and budget.
