Poly-What? Understanding The Difference Between Our Two Most Commonly Used Netting Materials

Spend five minutes on our website and you’re sure to come across two words that look very similar: Polyethylene and polypropylene. They start and end the same and are both equally as difficult to say, if you’re saying them fast. But they are both materials that are essential to the work we do here at Renco Nets. It’s why we thought we’d take some time today to actually explain what each material is and where it comes from. First up: Polyethylene – The World’s Most...

Continuing The Long Tradition Of Working With Rope On The Humber Bank

A few miles up the road from our home on the south coast of the Humber Bank is a little town called Barton-upon-Humber. It holds interest to us here at Renco Nets as nearby you can find something called The Ropewalk Museum. As a company who work with rope everyday – and have done for more than thirty years – we’re glad to see the museum continues to celebrate the rope-making factory that was once housed on its premises.
