Additionally, net panels shall have internally constructed vertical and horizontal ropes of the same material. All rope locations on the net panels shall correspond to the as built net panel suspension and support cables constructed to pole structures. All net panels shall be custom fabricated to as built measurements of the pole/cable structure to provide a taut panel upon completion.

Attachment of net and rope components shall be made with #48 braided polyester twine, minimum 375 lb. tensile strength, treated black. The attachment twine shall continually encompass the netting component and be tied to the rope component via a clove and one half hitch knot +/- 6 inches on center, never to exceed 8 inches on center.

Finished net panels shall be suspended to cables by the rope component via a 9/32” cadmium plated steel carabiner attachment snap, minimum 1,140 lb. breaking strength. The interior of the snap shall encompass only the rope and cable components when suspension is completed. The interval between snap to cable attachment points shall not exceed 3 feet on center (snap size may vary to fit cable size(s) specified).
