Although archery is a sport, it is a dangerous shooting technique which can in the worst case cause fatal injuries. There are therefore clear safety rules for handling a bow and arrow. However, it is also important to think about making the archery field as safe as possible. For this purpose, we offer an extremely close-meshed arrow catch net. This is fixed behind the target as a kind of protective barrier and is intended to stop any arrows which miss the target from accidentally hitting people or animals. Thanks to its close meshes, the catch net for archery achieves maximum tensile strength. The arrow catch net can therefore even withstand the force of an arrow flying at a tremendous speed.
Weight: approx. 510 g/m²
Material: high tenacity polypropylene
Even with an arrow catch net, there is no guarantee that archery is completely safe, but a net does considerably minimise the risk of injury. There are however various possibilities for deploying an arrow catch net in an ideal way in order to guarantee optimal protection. To begin with, a double layer of the material can, for example, be mounted behind the target. This creates a mesh density that is otherwise almost impossible to achieve. In addition, one can ensure that arrow catch nets are mounted over as wide an area as possible around the target. Here, the following rule applies: the more catch nets you have for archery, the greater the safety. If, for example, there is a lot of netting to left and right to catch the arrows, but there are hardly any arrow catch nets above the target, then a bow that’s aimed too high will quickly present a danger. So you need to make sure that the area behind the target is extensively protected by arrow catch nets - or better still, by one continuous arrow catch net. In this way, the arrow catch net will provide the best possible protection from misaimed shots.
The material of an arrow catch net consists of flame-retardant polypropylene and possesses the property of being extremely light despite its density. Arrow catch nets can therefore be mounted easily and simply on, for example, a tensioned steel cable or similar structure, without having to struggle with too much weight. In addition, polypropylene is an extremely strong, stable material, particularly with such a close-meshed weave. At the same time, the material is flexible enough to absorb the energy of a shot. This means that the arrow catch net in archery functions like a protective barrier, while still being relatively light.
