Use & Purpose
Link™ Double Twist Rockfall netting mesh is traditionally supplied in a 2m wide by 50 m long roll
(other roll lengths and roll widths are available). The product is woven in the unique double twist weave that minimises the potential to unravel. Additionally this Link™ Rockfall netting can be zinc galvanised or wire protected by a licensed metallic coating process known as Galfan®, which is a 95% Zn/5%Al (with rare earth mischmetal additive) alloy that has been independently tested to demonstrate a life of 2-3 times greater than traditional heavily galvanised wire of equal diameter and placed within the same operating environment.
For extended durability, the zinc galvanisation or Galfan® wire coating can be additionally sheathed in an extruded UV stabilised polymer coating for superior long term life.
BBA Approval: Link™ Rockfall netting made from PVC coated hexagonal wire mesh is BBA approved.
