Tarpaflex donates debris netting

Debris netting in use, covering a great bustard release pen

Over the last few years we have found debris netting to be the ideal material to cover our bustard pens. It has two main advantages - its fine mesh size which removes the possibility of a bird becoming caught in the netting, and its softness compared to other netting types, reducing the chance of feather damage from contact with the netting. This may be an unusual use of debris netting, but it demonstrates its versatility in many applications.

It is great to be able to say that Tarpaflex, a family-owned business based in Devon, have taken the opportunity to sponsor the project with five rolls of debris netting. This will be enough to cover all the pens we build in 2014, for both rearing and releasing, and we are very grateful for their support. 

Tarpaflex is a leading name in tarpaulins and one of the UK’s largest importers, with over 110 products varying in specification, size and colour. In addition they also supply a comprehensive range of dust sheets, debris netting, scaffold sheeting and rope. Visit their website to find out more about the products offered by the company: www.tarpaflex.co.uk

We look forward to working with Tarpaflex again in the future.
