Installation of the poles:
- The poles need to be anchored firmly into the ground and preferably set into a concrete base (Ø 80cm and 1m deep)
- Interspace: maximum 3m
- Pole dimensions: Ø 8cm x 2m for a net height of 1m, Ø 10cm x 2.5m for a net height of 1.5m, Ø 12cm x 3m for a net height of 2m.
- Marks are affixed to the first and last pole near the polyester eyelets (every metre or every 1.5m) to indicate where the cables need to be attached.
- The net is completely rolled out on the ground and the tension cables are passed through the polyester eyelets. Ø 3 mm PVC-coated steel wire ropes or polyester cables are to be used as tension cables.
- The net is folded like a curtain. The various cables are attached to the first pole.
- The loose end of the upper cable is tensioned by means of a tackle and fixed to the last pole. This procedure is repeated for the other cables.
- The net is nailed to the first pole by means of a batten. Subsequently, the net is unfolded over the cables up to the next pole and nailed down. Etc.
- The net’s eyelets are attached to the first and last pole by means of cable ties. The cable ties are placed around the pole, passed through the polyester eyelets closest to the pole and tightened.
- Finally, the upper and lower cable are nailed to all poles by means of staples.
