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
For sports nets such as
batting cages and backstops, it is
best if the mesh is close to the same height and length.
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%.
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.
