Can I install a mezzanine net on my own?

You can install a hung mezzanine net on your own, it’s really easy to do it with a friend.

However, 96% of Feelnets customers do it themselves, so you can too!

To install the net you need to align the fixings, all around the periphery of the space, every 150 millimetres (appr. every 5,9 inches)

We have wood and concrete fixings (you will need anchors matching the material to set up your mezzanine net, they are sold apart).

Your parcel comes with installation guidelines, which include the following steps:

  • How to install the fixings
  • How to centre the net
  • How to put tension on the rope
  • How to knot the net

You don’t need special tools to set up your installation, all tools are listed in our guidelines

Woodworkers, carpenters, roofers (or other craftsmen) will know how to set up our custom nets, if you’re not feeling like doing it yourself

How to set up a custom net in an IPN beam?

An IPN beam (with a regular I shape) is simply a steel beam.

It’s really easy to install a mezzanine custom net on an IPN beam. You will need to weld hanging points every 150 mm (every 5,9 inches) on your beam.

You can also drill the beam every 150 mm (every 5,9 inches), but make sure to perfectly sand the edges of the holesto avoid any damage to the rope.

Another way is to weld a metal bar to the beam to pass the lacing rope around it (which limits the fixings to every 150 mm)

Can I fix my custom net on three sides only?

Being on a four-sided space, you must absolutely fix all four sides of your net.

As a matter of fact, without fixings on one of the sides, your net will not be strained and will be useless. You will not be able to step on it and the tension will not be balanced.

Zinc-plated eyebolts of 8×80 millimetres (appr. 0,31 x 3,1 inches) cost less than stainless steel saddles, which offers a great saving when you have to install them all around your net.

You need to pre-drill your support, then screw all the eyebolts which takes time during the set-up.

Every eyebolt can withstand 80 kgs. (176,3 pounds)

The threaded rod is 50 mm long (1,96 inches).You need to drive it inside the wall 60-70 mm deep (up to 2,75 inches deep)

Stainless steel saddles on plates are more expensive but can improve the finish

Feelnets insists that your net should be as close as possible to the fixings to leave the minimum void possible between the edge of the net and the wall.

Stainless steel saddles on plates are sold with or without screws. The screws are 5 x 50mm (0,19 x 1,9 inches) stainless steel torx head.

Can I use eyebolts and saddles on plate?

Both of them are perfectly fit to fix indoors custom house nets or safety railing nets. However, you must be aware that the eyebolt will protrude a few millimetres.

Can I put a net outdoors?

Of course!! All our nets are UV proof, and can be set indoors or outdoors.

You can find our nets all around the world, in luxury hotels, or on the boats of our partners. (il y a un lien vers les partenaires ici)

Net Lacing

Simple or double lacing?

If you have children we advise double lacing.

Children move more than adults, and double lacing diminishes the vibrations they cause. In addition, it is more comfortable for tiny feet. Double lacing is explained in our installation booklet.

If you don’t have children you can chose simple lacing.

Can I use E 8mm lacing (0,31 inch)?

If you choose double lacing, you might want to consider using 8mm lacing, which offers a finer finish.

Can I choose between different colors and thickness? 

Feelnets offers black, red, grey and blue, goingfrom 3 to 10 mm thickness (from 0,11 to 0,39 inch)

All our ropes are in polyester.

For horizontal nets, like the house net or the mezzanine net we advise 8 to 10 mm thickness (0,31 to 0,39 inch thickness)

For vertical nets like safety railings, we advise a range of between 4 and 8 mm thickness (0,15 to 0,39 inch thickness).
