Q. What do the difference netting sizes mean and how does it affect strength?
A. Generally netting is gauged using a number system #15, #21, #36, etc. This system represents only the amount of filaments in a twine, #60 carries many more filaments than #36 but they both use the same type of filaments. As gauge size increases change in filament quantity also increases which increases the breaking strength and thickness of the twine. Thickness also helps with abrasion resistance as it yields more surface area.

A. We use only high quality knotted nylon and polyethylene netting.
