Which wire mesh do I need for my crops?


Written by Nick Groenewoud | Latest update: 22-08-2019

Wire mesh is normally stretched between the standard support materials: pillars with a ring at the bottom that are pushed into the ground in the greenhouse. Because there often are differences between crops Royal Brinkman has a large assortment of wire netting and support materials to support your crops. Our product specialist explains about the different types of wire mesh or wire netting for each crop. Below you can find a summary of which wire mesh to choose for which crop.

What is mesh width?

Mesh width is the property of the net and can be measured in different ways: mesh width gives the amount of holes per surface unit. So mesh width gives the distance between two threads.
