Jakob Webnet is a versatile, pliable, high strength mesh system, manufactured from High Grade 316 stainless steel wire rope.
An innovative, highly durable product with exceptional tensile strength, Webnet is weather-resistant and requires minimal maintenance. In combination with our architectural rope systems, Webnet may be used in many different applications, both indoors and outdoors, including balustrade infill, animal enclosures, safety nets and green wall systems.
As a permanent fall-prevention feature for bridges, car parks or observation platforms, Webnet provides the perfect blend of security, safety and elegance, with the system’s strong yet delicate structure making it inconspicuous yet highly effective.
High Grade 316 Stainless Steel, offers many advantages, including:
316 “marine grade” stainless steel
Pliable, high strength mesh system
Innovative, highly durable product
Wide range of sizes available
Black anodised or galvanised finish options
UV and weather resistant
Professional, friendly service
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).
The standard Webnet specification features alternating sleeves within the web structure, making it versatile, flexible and economical – especially with small rope diameters.
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.
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.
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.
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….
