  • New Year, New Safety

    Have you ever taken a look around your warehouse facility?  Specifically the areas where your employees work or the traffic areas they walk in?  Are the products that you store secure in your racks?  Are your fork truck drivers able to safely place and remove product without causing it to go off the back side of the racks?

  • Plastic Netting 101

    Square MeshThe Extrusion Process

    Extrusion is a continuous process, in which plastic resin pellets are melted and pushed through a die in "meat-grinder" fashion.   Strands are formed as resin exits the die.  The hot matrix is then drawn over a mandrel and into a water bath to cool the netting.

    Types of Plastic Netting

    There are fundamentally two different kinds of extruded plastic netting differentiated by strand structure and the hole configuration formed by those strands: diamond netting and square netting.  Each is created through unique processes that result in distinct product characteristics.   Both types of products are produced in a wide range of configurations, ranging from fine "filtration-grade" netting that would resemble a woven product, to more course extrusion typical of plastic construction fence.
