Figuring out the difference between knotted polypropylene and braided polyethylene can seem complicated. But it needn’t be. There are really only a limited number of key phrases you need to know when it comes to choosing which type of material you need.

Of course, if you’re ever unsure of what type of material would best suit your specific needs, we’re more than happy to talk it through with you and figure out the best option. Just give us a call and we can sort it.

Still, to give you a head start, we thought it would be useful to run through four of the key terms we use most often, so you can see what it’s all about.


When it comes to twine, the main two types you’ll likely come across are nylon and polyethylene (pronounced ‘poly-eth-eh-leen). Nylon is hardwearing and very strong. It’s incredibly versatile and is used in fishing, rigging, gardening, crafts…the list goes on. You can usually tell nylon twine, as it’s pretty rough to the touch. Polyethylene twine is much smoother to the touch and more plastic feeling, but it’s just as strong. It’s mainly used to repair nets made of the same polyethylene material. We’ll look at polyethylene in more detail shortly, first let’s talk about...


Thicker than twine, by itself rope can be used in situations that need a bit more ‘oomph’ such as lashing boats or in industrial situations or scaffolding, for example. Its strength is also useful when being used in rope bridges for children’s play areas. Predominately we use polypropylene rope (pronounced ‘poly-pro-p-leen’). It’s tough. It doesn’t rot. And it’s incredibly versatile. And it’s also relatively soft to the touch.


As the name suggests, this type of netting is identified mainly be the fact that it doesn’t appear to have any knots. Instead, the different strands are woven together. It gives the netting a soft feel, which makes it ideal for use when it comes to obstacles in children’s soft-play areas. And it’s interesting to know that we’re one of the few firms – perhaps the only one to our knowledge – who are able to produce this type of netting in multi-colour.


Again, the clue is in the name but the key difference is the type of twine used here. Where as polypropylene is softer to the touch and is able to be woven together, when it comes to making nets with the more plastic-feeling polyethylene, the strands must be knotted together, or ‘braided’ as we say in the business. This technique produces very strong nets, and due to the nature of the polyethylene twine used, it makes them extremely hardwearing. For example, whereas softer polypropylene nets are used for the obstacles in children’s play areas, knotted polyethylene netting is used for the safety nets surrounding them.

And there you have it: four of the key terms we most often use in netting. Hopefully that’s shed some light on some of the differences between the materials we use.

But, like we said before, if you were ever unsure of what type of material would best suit your specific needs, we’re more than happy to talk it through with you and figure out the best option. Just give us a call on 01469 575 804.

football net

When it comes to the use of nets in sport, you’d be surprised at how many different ways they can be used beyond the typical image of a criss-cross white net strung up between goal posts.

Here are six other sports we provide netting for:


 After football, this is probably the most obvious candidate. Most often nets are used in cricket for practice areas, so players can swing for six without some poor fielder having to run to the boundary to collect the ball. But for a cricket club with boundaries close to the car park or residential housing, a well-positioned safety net could be an insurance lifesaver.


Another case here of being best used when practicing your swing before another disastrous 18 holes. We provide a lot of clients with golf netting that fences off driving ranges or prevents too many lost balls when a five iron chips the ball too far away from the green. Thanks to the way we work, we’re able to provide nets that can cordon off pretty big areas too.


It’s obvious when you think about it, but not one that comes straight to mind. Still, it wouldn’t be much of a game of tennis if you didn’t have a net between the players. If you’ve rolled away the tennis nets and left them to wear away in sheds over winter once too often, it might be time to get in touch with us to organise a fresh set.


Not every archer has the accuracy of Robin Hood and some arrows can stray from the target. That’s where archery nets come in, preventing projectiles that aren’t fired with pinpoint precision from hitting any fellow competitors, or anyone else who might be around the range for that matter. Best to always be safe where archery is concerned. So, get in touch if you need the netting!


This is one that very people realise we’re able to provide…but we produce quite a few. And we even stock the buoys you need to keep the nets afloat.

The bottom line is: whatever you’re netting need might be when it comes to sports, here at Renco Nets, we’ve got you covered. Reach out at anytime from 8am to 4pm on 01469 575 804 and we can talk about which nets would best suit your sporting need.

nests for pest control

If you’ve ever tried to grow fruit or vegetables in your garden, you’ll know keeping annoying animals and bothersome birds at bay can be a real challenge... 

But if you work in the agricultural industry, you’ll understand the problem steps up to a whole new level. Whether it’s mice, rats, birds or bugs...keeping pests off your crops is essential to the success of any agricultural business.

Thankfully, here at Renco Nets, we have plenty of experience providing anti-vermin netting to a wide range of companies.

We understand not all pest control situations are the same. Different problems require different solutions. It’s why we offer a variety of nets, each using different types of mesh and various materials depending on the specific pest problem your business might have.

For example, it might be your business requires netting that keeps the birds’ pecking beaks away but allows bees to go about their business, pollinating flowers and helping nature run its course. In such cases we’re able to provide a custom size mesh that blocks birds, but lets bees bumble on through.

In addition to the size of the mesh, we’re also able to use certain types of material some vermin dislike. This helps deter any unwanted trespassing and keeps your assets well protected.

No crop too big

The other key challenge we find our agricultural clients face is the sheer size of their need. Often crops will span vast fields and it can be tough to find nets big enough.

That’s not a problem we have here at Renco Nets. We’re able to provide almost any custom size you require. Our ability to make large, seamless nets will see you covered whether you’ve got an acre to protect or a few courgettes and cabbages on an allotment.

When it comes to the agricultural industry, we understand the demands on land and how much success rides on a good crop. It’s why all of our agricultural nets are made to the highest quality and we go to great lengths to make sure we meet the specific needs of each client.

So, when it comes to arranging protection for your agricultural businesses’ most valuable asset, make sure you get the expert advice you need by giving us a call. We’ll figure out the best netting solution for you and make sure your crops stay pest-free. You can reach out and call us anytime from 8am to 4pm on 01469 575 804.

We’ve seen a lot change in the 30 years we’ve been manufacturing netting here at Renco Nets, but one thing has remained constant throughout…our rope.

Though we’ve seen demand for different types of netting change, from coarse nets for fishing to soft nets for children’s soft play, the types of rope we use have largely stayed the same. We’ve been working with four key types - polypropylene, poly hemp, yarn construction and nylon – for over three decades.

But it’s certainly not ‘money for old rope’, as they say. As the netting industry has become so competitive, another thing we’ve seen change is the price of rope, it’s been steadily increasing for a while now. As a result, today we source materials not just from Europe but also from suppliers all over the world.

When our Managing Director, Rene Jorgensen, first landed on the shores of the Humber Bank back in 1988, he hardly expected to be heading-up one of the UK’s most highly-respected netting manufactures all these years later. But, as we prepare to celebrate our 30th birthday this month, Rene – and everyone here at Renco Nets – are delighted to still be leading the industry forward. And more importantly, we’re so excited to see what the next 30 will bring.Read More

Every year, the Office of National Statistics (ONS) compiles a list of items that represent the average UK shopping basket. It includes a lot of what you’d expect…various fruits and vegetables, tea and coffee, some essential items of clothing. Chocolate is in there, of course. And so is beer and wine. But when the basket was updated recently for 2018, as well as flavoured cider, jigsaws and non-dairy milk, there was one addition you might not have expected…children’s soft play sessions.Read More
