Do you produce the nets yourselves?
The nets are produced in net factories according to our specifications. We process the nets. Until the beginning of the 1980s, nets were still produced at the Bremerhaven site.
I only need a very small net. You must have leftovers. Why don't you offer leftovers?
We do offer remnants, but only for those who collect them themselves from our factory in Bremerhaven. In the webshop or in the catalogue it is simply too time-consuming to record the individual measurements and to maintain the data.
Are you also available on weekends?
Our opening hours can be found here: https://engelnetze.com/en/about-us Orders via our online shop can of course be placed around the clock, seven days a week. Incoming orders and enquiries are processed on the next working day after the weekend or public holidays.

What does mesh size mean?
Mesh size is the distance from node centre to node centre of two consecutive nodes. Simply put... one side of a mesh. Thus, the circumference of a mesh is equal to 4x the mesh size.
Why are rhombic meshes cheaper?
The production of nets with square meshes is much more expensive. Basically, the nets are made with rhombic meshes. For the square mesh, the rhombic meshes are cut diagonally and then the cut pieces are professionally reassembled.
Can I cut nets myself or will the knots come loose?
The knots will not come loose. The net yarn (thread) may untwist to the next knot, but the knot will not be affected. The knots of our nets are thermally fixed.
What is the best way to install large cover nets?
Depending on the size of the area, it makes sense to mount lines as an under-tensioning so that the net can be placed on the lines and thus the entire force does not act on the outer meshes when tensioning the net.
Are custom-made products possible?
Yes, we also manufacture fishing gear or cover nets according to individual wishes. Please contact us for more information.
I need a larger net enclosure. Can you take care of the planning and construction?
Yes, we can plan the enclosure together. An on-site appointment is usually necessary for the planning. Once the planning is complete, we can place the posts and install the nets.
