Testimony of Guillaume T.

With the method and the Feelnets installation guide, clear and detailed, it seemed very simple to me. Each step comes with easy-to-follow diagrams and instructions.

The videos on the Feelnets website were also very useful to me. They allowed me to visualize each step in action, which is quite reassuring.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that I didn't need any special tools or special skills. The fixings came with my package, and I was able to install them easily following the instructions. The step of centering the net in the space to be filled was also well explained, and I was able to carry it out without any problem.

Tensioning the net using the rope was a crucial step, but thanks to the advice from the guide and the videos, I was able to do it without any problem. The knots needed to attach the net were explained in detail, which made this phase much simpler than I would have imagined.

If you still have any doubts, here we give you the five points that you absolutely must know before you start.

Five key points to be sure to successfully install your net:

  1. Make sure you have the right support: Before you begin installation, it is essential to make sure you have the correct support. We recommend solid supports such as wood, concrete, IPN (steel I-joists) or other suitable materials. Depending on the desired fixing surface, you will need to choose suitable fixings. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the choice of support or fixings.
  2. Appropriate fixings: The first key point is to choose the right fixings for your project. Be sure to select fasteners designed for the type of wall you will be installing the net on. Feelnets offers fixings for both wood and concrete, so choose based on your specific situation. The right choice of fixings is essential for a solid and secure installation.
  3. Aligning the fasteners: Be sure to position the fasteners evenly and aligned all around the perimeter of the net. It is recommended to space them at intervals of 150mm to ensure even distribution of tension on the net. Precise alignment ensures the stability and functionality of the net.
  4. Tensioning the net: Tensioning the net is a crucial step. Be sure to follow the guide’s instructions to properly tension the net using the rope provided. The tension of the net must be uniform to ensure its strength and safety. Remember to follow the instructions on which knots to use to secure the net properly.
  5. Checking all four sides: When installing, make sure that all four sides of the net are properly attached. It is imperative to fix each side so that the net is stretched in a balanced manner. Leaving one side unsecured will render the net unusable and potentially dangerous. Be sure to secure all sides to ensure the safety and functionality of your net.

By following these 5 key points, you will be well prepared for a successful installation of your home net on your own.

One last tip before you get started: Follow the installation guide. Use the installation guide provided with your package. This guide is a valuable resource that will walk you through the installation process step by step. Follow the instructions in the guide carefully, paying particular attention to the diagrams and details provided. This is the key to a hassle-free installation.
