For best results installing the AviGard
Crop Structure 50ft x 100ft Knotted Bird
Net please follow the guidelines below.
Step 1 - Open Net Completely
To install AviGard Crop Structure Bird Nets, s-t-r-e-t-c-h the net open to its full installed dimensions on the ground before attempting to drape net on hoops, scaffolds or other supports. Each corner of the net is marked with a white flag and this net also has 2 brown flags at the 50ft mid-point of each 100ft side.
To start, locate one corner (with the white flagging) and anchor it to the ground before attempting to open the net further. This is best accomplished by using a stake (6in or longer) to securely anchor the corner against movement. After anchoring the 1st corner, move to an adjacent corner (not the the diagonal or opposite corner) and pull net open until meshes achieve a uniform square shape. Anchor this corner with a stake and repeat for remaining two corners.
Step 2 - Protect Net Against Abrasion
Protect your Crop Structure Nets against abrasion and chaffing and to extend eld life by “softening” sharp edges of support poles and other supports that will be in direct contact with the netting. This can be accomplished by attaching pieces of soft materials like carpet or smooth, snag-free surfaces at stress-points where the net is attached. Because AviGard Crop Structure nets can remain in place continuously for 10 years the more U.V. resistant (and smooth) the post cover material is, the longer and better the protection against abrasion and chaffing.
