Drape Net was conceived over 15 years ago by a third generation orchardist trying to negate the devastating effects of hail. Our team combines a lifetime of orchard experience with 35 years of expertise in the netting industry, producing a high quality and long lasting product.
The best word to describe Drape Net is ‘simplicity’ as it is very adaptable and cost effective. Drape Net can be moved and stored very easily.
We’ve been manufacturing durable, high-quality crop protection netting since 2005, testing and perfecting Drape Net on our own orchards with outstanding results year-after-year. Our repeat customers are testament that Drape Net works and works well.
“After being wiped out by hail in December 2018, straight away I knew things had to change. Any grower that has been affected by hail will understand that.
So after many discussions with Ian Bolitho (who has used Drape Net for a few years), and Michael Cunial from Drape Net, I purchased a container load of hail netting from Drape Net. I realised the benefits almost instantly, with protection from wind, sun and birds.
Of course, the big test came just a couple of weeks ago on a Sunday evening when another hail storm came through. The storm damaged up to, or more than, 50% of fruit not covered by netting, while everything covered by Drape Net was basically untouched by hail – so the netting has basically already paid for itself. I highly recommend Drape Net”.
