Simple Answers to Ten Questions You Might Have About Rope and Netting

We get a lot of questions in from new and existing clients about the different types of rope and netting we provide and about the service we offer.

In case you’re searching around look for an answer to a specific question, we thought it would be useful to put a load of answers in one place.

Of course, if there’s a specific question you have that isn’t answered here, just let us know.

You can always call direct on 01469 575 804 or email us at

Q1. Can I order a net to fit a specific size?

The simple answer is yes.

We can make nets to fit any shape and size.

No matter how weird or wonderful your need might be we can usually sort it out for you.

Sure we’re able to supply fixed-size netting if that’s what you’re after…

But if you’ve got a specific space you need to fill, or if you’re in need of a particularly strange shape – we can sort that too.

We can hand-craft unique nets to whatever measurement they need to be, so just give us a call or email us and we can get to work.

Q2. How long does it usually take to manufacture and deliver your nets?

Well – the fact is: we pride ourselves on being the fastest in the business.

In most cases, we can usually have your netting order with you the very next day.

Not bad, right?

Of course, sometimes it might take a bit longer if there’s a detail that will need us to take time over or material we need to get in stock.

But we aim to have all netting deliveries out within a maximum of three days.

And we’ll always be very clear with you about exactly when you can expect your order to be delivered, so you can plan accordingly.

Q3. Do you fit the nets you provide?

No. We don’t fit the nets ourselves.

But all of our products can be designed and manufactured to meet the exact measurements you need.

When it comes to requesting a specific size of net or particular length of rope, you can always give us a quick phone call to talk about the measurements.

A lot of our nets are made bespoke so if you’ve got a strange space to fit, it’s no problem.

Q4. What if there’s a problem and you need to return the product?

First off – it’s not a problem. We have a full refund policy set up to make sure you’re covered.

Providing you’re able to return the product to us within 30 days, that’s fine.

You can read our full returns policy here.

Of course, we don’t think you’ll have a problem with any of our products.

As the vast majority of items are made to order, we take great care in crafting everything accordingly…

And we always make sure everything we deliver is of the highest quality and appropriate for the job at hand.

Q5. What’s the difference between polyethylene and polypropylene?

Poly-ETH-y-lene is the most common plastic in the world…

Poly-PROP-y-lene is the second most common.

They are very similar but the difference really comes down to toughness and resistance to heat.

Polyethylene it’s mostly it’s used for packaging, due to it being relatively light but extremely durable.

We use it in a wide range of different products, from cricket practice nets to the scramble nets used in children’s soft-play materials.

Being that bit tougher, polypropylene makes for great rope. We supply a variety of different types, including multicolour polypropylene rope, which is pretty rare in the industry.

If you’re ever in doubt as to which you should be using, just give us a call and let us know what you plan on using it for and we’ll advise accordingly.

Q6. Where are you based?

Our main offices are here on the coast of North Lincolnshire in a little port town called Immingham.

It’s between Scunthorpe and Grimsby, just off the A180.

It’s a great base for us as it allows us to quickly distribute netting and rope all around the UK and across to Europe.

In fact, it means we can easily provide next day delivery on most of the different types of rope and netting we stock.

Q7. Is there a minimum order size?

Not really.

Whether you’re looking to order in bulk, or you’re after a smaller stock of netting for the garden…

We’ll be happy to supply you.

On the website you’ll often find the standard sizes we stock of different ropes and nets.

But in most cases we can cut things down to smaller sizes if you need us to.

If you’re ever in any doubt, just pick up the phone and give us a call on 01469 575 804 or email us at and we can talk about exactly what you need.

We know our netting is often used in situations to provide safety to the people using it, whether it’s in an industrial site bordering a scaffold or a safety net in a children’s soft play area.

It’s why we always make sure our netting and rope is of the best quality and that you can rely on it to meet your needs.
