The unique design of our premium Smokehouse™ Netting reduces sticking and is perfect for smoking meats, delicate seafood products, and even pet treats! Unlike Teflon trays, Smokehouse is 100% non-stick, so you will not lose money on wasted product. Just use it, wash it, re-use and throw away! Smokehouse Netting is frequently used for lining trays to smoke beef jerky. The open mesh allows for even air circulation which is extremely important for even cooking of the meat.

Cheese Production Netting

Our white or blue colored cheese net has been used in cheese manufacturing for over 40 years. The blue color provides easy visibility to help avoid contamination. Delnet cheese nets are produced from High Density Polyethylene, giving them good tensile strength. We produce the nets from virgin resin, in enclosed, clean conditions on a line approved for medical production. This avoids the dust and contamination of spun cotton or muslin which are often produced in open uncontrolled environments. Its closed hexagonal structure means no threads or loose fibers. The unique structure allows the nets to key together forming a good structure to hold the cheese.
