commercial pigeon netting

pigeon netting is important because pest birds can create health-related problems through their feces, including histologists, streptococci, and psittacosis. Bird droppings may also cause damage to property and equipment. .
Detailed Description

Pigeon netting is used extensively as a bird exclusion device to protect both buildings and agricultural crops. Nylon bird netting and pigeon netting can be seen on buildings in towns and cities all over the world where it is used as a pigeon exclusion device; farmers also use bird netting extensively to protect valuable fruit crops from attack by wild birds. The main value of nylon pigeon nets in an urban environment where the protection of buildings is concerned is that it will blend in with the fascia of the building and maintain the aesthetic quality of the building concerned. In agricultural environments bird netting is often the only physical exclusion device available to farmers to protect fruit crops, although in many cases the use of netting will be complimented by bird scaring products such as predatorballoons  and noise related devices .

For pigeons a 50mm (2”) gauge pigeon net will be required, for gulls 100mm (4”), for sparrows 19mm (3/4”) and for starling 28mm (1 1/8th”). The different gauges are required to ensure that a) the hole is small enough to physically prevent the target species from entering the netted area and b) if the netting is provided horizontally the target species will not be able to perch or walk on the net. One of the main problems inherent with the use of nylon bird netting and pigeon netting for the protection of buildings is where more than one species is roosting on a building. For example, if a building has been protected against pigeons by using a 50mm pigeon net, starling would be able to enter the netted area and roost or nest, potentially causing more entrenched problems for the property owner. If, however, a 28mm starling net was provided in a horizontal application so that both species were excluded from the netted area, the mesh size would be small enough for pigeons to walk and perch on it resulting in continued problems for the property owner.For pigeons a 50mm (2”) gauge pigeon net will be required, for gulls 100mm (4”), for sparrows 19mm (3/4”) and for starlings 28mm (1 1/8th”).

Most types of nylon bird netting and pigeon netting that are used for bird proofing work are made from either polyethylene or polypropylene that has been stabilized against ultra violet light. The most common type of netting used for bird proofing is polyethylene UV stabilized net with a 12/6 twine. A flame retardant net is also commonly available and a majority of the various types and sizes of net can be fire-retarded on request. Many companies now offer fire-retarded net as standard. Although the ‘knotted’ type of polyethylene bird net has historically been the most commonly specified net for the purposes of bird proofing work, a new ‘knotless’ multi-strand polypropylene net has been designed which is both lighter and stronger than the ‘knotted’ polyethylene version. Knotless netting is approximately 70% stronger than conventional knotted polyethylene netting and is also 30% lighter. The product typically has a melting point that is nearly 50% higher than knotted polyethylene netting. These factors make the knotless netting cheaper to transport, easier to install and negates the need to pull the net into shape as is required with knotted polyethylene netting. The knotless net is often recommended for larger applications, particularly horizontal applications.Standard nylon bird and pigeon netting is 0.071” (18034mm) thick comprising of 6 strands that are 0.012” (0.3048mm) thick. The breaking strength of each strand of nylon is 23.6 kg (52lbs). The bursting strength is 22kg (44lbs). The product is highly resistant to most chemicals at standard temperatures and the high temperature range for the product is 100-115 degrees C (210-239 degrees F). Low temperature range is -95 to -110 degrees C (-139 to -166 degrees F). Most nylon bird netting is pre-stretched under 9 tons of tension and is then ‘heat set’. Heat setting involves stretching the net and then injecting steam over it for an extended period of time. This process will stretch the twine and tension all the knots to the point where they will retain their shape throughout the life of the product.

 

Standard 50mm Pigeon Netting


Nylon bird nets and pigeon nets are available in a variety of different colours including black, ‘stone’ and translucent. A range of colours are offered for bird proofing applications in order that the net will blend in with the fabric of the building concerned. The product is barely visible from a vantage point of only a few metres if the product has been installed and maintained according to manufacturer’s recommendations. Nylon bird netting that is used in the agricultural sector is also available in a variety of colours but in many cases the colour of the net is of less importance than it would be when used to protect buildings.
