Oriented Netting

SWM manufactures the leading lightweight oriented netting in the world.

About this product

SWM oriented netting is manufactured through a two-step process. First, a continuous extrusion process yields a plastic square net material with integral joints. Once the square netting has been created through extrusion, it can be reheated and stretched in either the machine direction (MD), cross direction (CD) or both directions in a process called orientation. Through orientation, SWM creates high-strength lightweight square and flat netting for applications requiring extremely lightweight oriented netting without sacrificing tensile strength performance.


In general, extruded square and flat netting may be oriented, depending on the final product requirements. For a detailed explanation of our manufacturing process of oriented netting, visit our Introduction to Plastic Netting section or contact our team for detailed product specifications and customization capabilities.
