A fabric of particular resilience and flexibility,

a “net” whose strands are neither knotted nor crossed:

the Jakob® 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® Webnet is a vibrant,

premium-quality product:


the mesh aperture (variable, from very tight to very wide), the wirerope

diameter (1.0 mm, 1.5 mm, 2.0 mm,and 3.0 mm), and the choice

of wire rope or stranded wire determine functionality and aesthetics.

Most Jakob® Webnet components

are made from the AISI 316 material group.

Webnet test frame for the determination

of the force/elongation diagrams


The frame is used to determine the elongation of

the Webnet in the height (H) and width (W) directions

when exposed to different stretching forces.

The insights form the basis of dimensioning and

configuring the Webnet and the periphery structure.
