Today, Knox offers customised nets, designed for application in aquaculture, camouflage, sport or industry. This is complemented by a highly-engineered net service plant for the fish farming industry.
A popular element of the service offering is the comprehensive database, which records test results, building up a full net history, with direct online customer access.
Knox works with Garware-Wall Ropes Ltd (GWRL) on new netting products for cage nets and anti-predator solutions.
The GWRL brand “Star netting” has been introduced for cage nets, giving a smoother surface, making the cleaning process easier, as fouling struggles to establish an anchor point.
Other GWRL developments include Sapphire Ultracore and Sapphire SealPro. Ultracore, a high-density polythene netting with fine stainless steel wires in its core, is often incorporated as an anti-predator base on Star nets, covering the base and lower walls. Reviews tell of the whole net holding its shape well. SealPro is a lighter version of Sapphire, with a polymer core, and enhanced stiffness. This netting can be used for growing fish, with a proven Canadian track record.
Knox also supplies GWRL treatment tarpaulins, and is LiftUp Scottish distributor.
