Installing pigeon netting is a fairly straightforward DIY task.
You need to create a wire surround on which to affix the net. This is done by fixing strong bolts (forged galvanised Eyebolts) available below, into corners and any area where a change of run of the net is proposed. You then need to introduce intermediate wire retainers along the wall faces where the net is to be affixed. We supply 40mm Screw Eyes or 38mm Stainless Steel Split Pins for this purpose, they should be installed at 500mm spacings between the Eybolts. Therefore, on a 5metrex5metre net you would require 40 intermediate Screw Eyes or Split Pins. We supply the Screw Eyes with suitable wall plugs but they can also be screwed directly into timber.
Once you have your wire support fixings in place you can run the surround wire through these fixings and use a barrel strainer to join the ends together once the wire is through all the fixings.You can , using the wire rope grips, attach one end of the surround wire to one of the corner bolts, run it through all the fixings thn install the barrel strainer by hooking it into the first corner bolt (where you connected the wire, then connect the other end of the wire to the barrel strainer. Try to place the Barrel Strainer where it can be accessed easily after the net is fitted as you need to tighten it, both on the day of installation and possibly a few weeks later, if the net stretches. Just fit this hand tight for now (use Wire Rope Grips to connect the wire to the Barrel Strainer and make sure the Barrel Strainer is in the fully open position before installing, use a Nut Spinner to do up the Wire Rope Grips). Tighten the surround wire before fixing the net and once the net is installed you may need to further tighten using the barrel strainer.
Now that the wire is fitted you can suspend the net. This is best done using Hog Rings and a Hog Ring Stapler, this is very simple and gives you a really professional finish. You can even cut net and then re-join the net with the Hog Ringer. Connect the net to the surround wire using the hog ringer, ring every 50mm around the net. Therefore, on a 5 metre x 5 metre net you would require at least 400 hog rings..
