Home Net Buyer's Guide

The home net

The new-generation net occupies a key place in the home. The home net is a clever interior-design solution. The horizontally-positioned tensioned net lets you secure a mezzanine and create a place to relax in. Installed vertically, the net acts as a guardrail with a contemporary look.

All our models can withstand weights of up to 210 kg/m2 (43 lbs/sqft), while providing you with a sensation of floating while on it. Still not sure what kind of net to choose? This Buyer's Guide is meant for you! We'll walk you through everything you need to know about home nets!

Why choose a LoftNets home net?

Catamaran net specialists since 2007, LoftNets by France Trampoline applies its experience to designing complete, customized solutions (net + adapted fixations) for each of your decorating projects.

The advantages:

  • Excellent openwork to let light filter through
  • Economical, long-lasting solution
  • Original and comfortable relaxation area
  • Fills unused spaces
  • Easy to install


Home net uses

Our nets may be installed both indoors and outdoors because they are extremely robust. Below are some of the different ways to use a home net:

  • INDOOR NET & MEZZANINE:

A net suspended horizontally over a mezzanine will create a new, functional space in your home. This space will rapidly become everyone's favorite place to recline and relax!

  • GUARDRAIL AND HAND RAIL:

We design nets to install vertically to create protective barriers. Used as a guardrail, the net will protect family members against falls on balconies, staircases, and mezzanines.

  • OUTDOOR NET:

Installing an outdoor net creates an original relaxation area. Impervious to UV rays and harsh weather conditions, the nets may also be used as guardrails on terraces and staircases.


Where to install the net

The installation hardware we provide is meant to be used in installations on concrete or wooden walls. Wooden beams should be able to accommodate hardware such as 80-mm (3 5/32'') or 120-mm (4 3/4'') eye screws, or the 50-mm (2'') screws of the pad eye plates. Please note that the home net cannot be fastened to a plaster wall or drywall.


Maximal weight limit on the home net

The nets we provide are extremely robust. The mesh alone can withstand up to 210 kg/m² (43 lbs/sqft), to which we add a tension rope that can withstand up to 2,500 kg (5,511 lbs), and fixation points positioned every 150 mm (6'') that, based on the type of fixation point chosen, can withstand between 60 kg (132 lbs) and 300 kg (661 lbs). To sum up, if the installation instructions are strictly followed, your suspended net will be extremely resistant and able to hold the weight of several people.


Choosing the net

Our team is available to assist you through each step of your project in any way we can. And it all begins with the choice of your net's material. We offer several types of nets to provide you with the best choices in terms of quality, and in adequation with your project. However, all our nets meet the following demands:

  • A high resistance to tearing

  • An extreme comfort
  • An adapted price
  • A modern aspect

Braided and knotted nets

There are two main categories of nets, braided nets and knotted nets. If you wish to install a net over a void to relax on, we recommend that you choose a braided net. Braided nets are more comfortable and softer to the touch than a knotted net, which has little knots at every one of the net's intersections.

However, a knotted net is more aesthetic, and makes for an ideal guardrail or hand rail.

The list above is not exhaustive; we are constantly researching new, improved net materials.

All our nets are UV-resistant, so they may be installed both indoors and outdoors. You may also choose your net with or without a bolt rope. A bolt rope is a reinforcement rope running along the net edges to give it added strength and a longer shelf life.

Installation and fixation systems

LoftNets provides several fixation systems to install your home net to let you choose the system best-suited to your project. Installing a home net is an easy process that anyone can do. The important thing is to tighten the tension rope as much as possible for a taut net that is evenly distributed in the void. Three types of lacing are to choose from: simple, double, or point-by-point.

Detailed instructions will be emailed to you before you receive your net.

Among our fixation systems, you will find:

  • 80-mm (3 5/32'') stainless steel eye screw
