Properties

Webnet is a construction of corrosion-resistant steel ropes placed parallel to one another in pairs connected by alternating sleeves to produce a symmetrical bent pattern. The nets are fabricated to-order for each project, according to its specific requirements. This means there are virtually no limits to the shape, size or mesh orientation of Webnet – all of which may be selected individually.

The items in the programme are fabricated of high-quality corrosion-resistant steel of the material groups AISI 316 and AISI 316L (1.4401 and 1.4404).

Webnet is certified in Germany by the German Institute for Building Technology (DIBt) (Z-14.7-557).

Webnet with Sleeves

The standard Webnet specification features alternating sleeves within the web structure, making it versatile, flexible and economical – especially with small rope diameters.

Webnet without Sleeves

When specified without sleeves, Webnet is even more transparent – while delivering practically identical strength values. Because of this, sleeveless Webnet is ideally suited for strong and unobtrusive protective nets as well as for animal enclosures in zoo applications.

Production

Webnet is designed and fabricated in Jakob’s own manufacturing plant – to the exact dimensions specified. This makes installation fast and straightforward, with no cutting to size required on site and providing consistent mesh size and tensioning as well as perfect edge connections.

The core Webnet material is assembled by hand and then mechanically pressed, ensuring the product achieves a consistent quality and guaranteed strength values. The sleeves are produced using a new manufacturing process, which enables the same strength to be achieved with less material – delivering both aesthetic and cost benefits.

Installation

Webnet installation requires only a minimum number of tools. A rope is threaded through the outermost row of mesh and then wound about a structure, thereby tensioning the net.

Close collaboration between the structural engineer and the installation team means that Webnet can be effectively integrated in the structure – in the correct order and with the correct tension to provide a safe, aesthetic and durable structure.

Applications

Proven in projects worldwide, Webnet may be used in a huge range of applications including railing infill, protective nets, safety nets, barricades, fences, zoo enclosures, aviaries, suicide prevention, façade greening, artwork, ball nets, stair wells, skylight protection, fall-prevention, bridge protection, and machine protection. The list of possibilities is limitless….

It’s Stainless Steel... but not as we know it

It’s Stainless Steel... but not as we know it

The beauty and elegance of stainless steel is very well recognised, but it’s versatility is perhaps less well understood. In fact, there are a number of different materials that share the core qualities of stainless steel, but vary slightly in terms of their strength, malleability and corrosion/ staining resistance to staining, allowing specifiers to select the precise material composition to meet their specific needs. These are the five main alternatives: Austenitic The ‘300 series’, ...

A little maintenance goes a long way

A little maintenance goes a long way

Stainless steel is a beautiful material. OK we may be biased, but its elegant, modern appearance is one of the reasons why it has been specified in some of the world’s most prestigious architectural projects. But, as with all things of beauty, its lasting appearance can’t always be taken for granted and a little regular maintenance can go a long way to ensuring a long, attractive life. To some degree, all grades and finishes of stainless steel may in some conditions be prone to staining ...
