Catahoula Manufacturing, Inc. has eleven knotting machines which assures our ability to produce the bulk netting you may need for any possible netting application.

Although most of our netting is used for fish nets, sports nets and industrial nets, our distributors continually surprise us with new applications for our netting.

We also have a distributor with an employee who has a Master's Degree in Net Engineering from Tokyo University, Japan, (the only one in the United States as of our knowledge) so you can rest assured that we can provide a solution to any of your net needs.

Give us a call at 1-800-873-4778 or email us if you don't see what you need listed here. We can often custom manufacture your exact needs.

                                                                                         
                                                                                      
     Hanging Ratios

When netting is attached to lines, it should be longer than the lines so as to have a proper looseness.
This excess length is expressed as a percentage of the stretched netting is the hanging ratio.
The formula for figuring the hanging ratio is stretched length of netting minus length of netting, divided by length of netting.
Ratio % = (str length of netting less rope length)/str length of netting
The shape of mesh is greatly influenced by the hanging ratio.
The following shows the heights and lengths of the mesh for different hanging ratios.

For sports nets such as batting cages and backstops, it is best if the mesh is close to the same height and length.
If possible hanging ratio should be between 25% and 35%. Ratio of 29.3%

Seines
are normally hung as close as possible to 1/3 which is a hanging ratio of 33.3%. If possible hanging ratio should be between 20% and 40%.

Gilling type nets are normally hung between 1/2 and 2/3 which is a hanging ratio of 50% to 66.7%. Generally more is better, but over 70% will start to become too dark in the water.

Link to chart for mesh deep to get 10' deep at 29.3%, 33.3% (1/3), 50% (1/2), and 66.7% (2/3)
