A fabric of particular resilience and flexibility, a “net” whose strands are neither knotted nor crossed: the Jakob® INOX LINE Webnet is a construction based on stainless steel wire ropes that lie parallel in pairs connected and reciprocally curved by offset sleeves. The net construction can be pulled apart like an accordion, producing a spring force that varies depending on the mesh aperture and wire-rope thickness. The Jakob® INOX LINE Webnet is a vibrant, premium-quality product: the mesh aperture (variable, from very tight to very wide) and the wire-rope diameter (1.0 mm, 1.5 mm, 2.0 mm, and 3.0 mm) determine its functionality and aesthetics.
All the Jakob® INOX LINE components are made from the AISI 316 material group.
Pliable, transparent grid structures made of stainless steel rope from the Jakob® INOX LINE series are multifunctional and durable: mounted on railings or in staircases, they provide support and guidance; on façades, they can be used as training systems for plants; in large rooms, they will create subtle accents as filigreed partitions. The Jakob® INOX LINE Webnet was subjected to numerous tests and complies with all applicable standards: As a permanent protective and safety net for bridges or observation platforms, it is absolutely UV- and weather-resistant, unlike conventional knotted plastic fiber nets.
The Jakob® INOX LINE Webnet has the skin-like characteristics of a diaphragm. It can form a plane surface but can also be tensioned into three-dimensional forms featuring funnel-type, cylindrical, or spherical shapes.
