||WO||WO/2014/182180 - NETTING MATERIAL WITH EYELETS||13.11.2014||
||PCT/NZ2014/000084||EXTENDAY IP LIMITED||TOYE, Jonathan Dallas|
A netting material having a length dimension and a width dimension much smaller than the length dimension is formed by threads knitted or woven together. The netting material has a main portion comprising knitted or woven apertures, a reinforced edge portion at or adjacent each longitudinal edge of the netting material comprising a longitudinal row of knitted or woven fastening features, and a reinforced intermediate portion between the reinforced edge portions. The reinforced intermediate portion has a first longitudinal row of knitted or woven fastening features and a corresponding second longitudinal row of knitted or woven fastening features. In use, the netting material is folded so that the first longitudinal row of fastening features and the second longitudinal row of fastening features are brought together to form a double-layered row of fastening features. The double-layered row of fastening features and the row of fastening features of the reinforced edge portions provide three longitudinal attachment locations for securing the netting material to a support structure.
