.5 oz bug netting on 06/22/2011 14:43:54 MDT Print View

Just thought I'd share this with everyone. By my calculations it should be around .5oz a square yard, though feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Just makes me smile when I see it because it's as if there's a fabric available this side of the pond that's lighter and that doesn't happen normally.

I get .66 oz per square yard which I think is equal to nanoseeum(or very close). This side of the pond still rules. :) (joking here)

17 gsm = 0.50 oz/sqyd by my calculations too.

Blimey - close to tulle!

Rob,

BPL had some SUL netting, once upon a time, but it was strictly "mosquito" netting. "NoSeeUms" were small enough to get through. Don't know about your "midges", but it would be worth asking the question.

(I didn't read the website description as it requires an account.)
