Our heavy duty bird net support offers several advantages over conventional tripod bird net supports.
Their larger size helps to increase the surface area supporting the top net thus reducing any point loading

We offer a range of sinker tube options for both 2 and 3 ring pens utilising thick walled, durable polyethylene pipe with options for either chain or wire cores. More information available upon request.
Sinker tubes are a heavy duty thick walled butt fused PE weighted ring suspended sub-surface below the base of the main containment net and can be used for a variety of reasons including:
Maximises the main containment net volume in higher current/energy environments which optimises stock holding capacity
Enhances the structure and integrity of the net ensuring convenient use of automated net cleaning technology
Allows better oxygen flow through nets
Can be used with anti-predator netting
Allows for use of smaller mesh nets enabling use of cleaner fish
The Sinker Tubes internal dead weight is either large diameter wire rope or heavy duty chain internally linked and weight per metre tailored to meet specific site conditions.
Equidistant suspension points fitted to the sinker tube include a 3Ton webbing sling choked around the pipe connection to the suspension line with a welded PE stopper either side to hold in position
Flexible suspension lines are available in either rope or chain.
