A well-tested foundation

A well-tested foundation

A hail net is a hail net and as long as it stays, it's good, right? But why is it that every year there are reports that many hectares of hail nets go against the plains. The climate is changing. Showers are getting more intense and grim. How are we prepared? How can we be sure that the system is strong enough? Who decides on the distances at which the poles have to come?  How is the strength of a hail net system determined?

Snowtest Austria Hailnet

From fruit growers for fruit growers!

FruitSecurity GMBH started a long time ago as a new company out of dissatisfaction with the existing systems. Nets that broke much too quickly. Parts that did not work properly. Systems that collapsed. In short, a lot went wrong. Fruitsecurity started to do it all differently. Martin Pfeifer and Rupert Matzer, two fruit growers, started building systems in their own orchards. Products were developed and implemented.

Snowtest Austria Hailnet


Fruitsecurity was the first to start extensive testing of their systems. This is done in many different ways. E.g. with tensile force measurements. But also with testing with natural load. As with snow see picture. Disclaimer hail nets always in winter mode. Hail nets are not built on snow loads. This is for a test.

A part of these tests can be seen on our Youtube videos. There it is shown that anchor distance is one of the most important points of a system. Every year in Europe alone, more than 1000 ha of hail nets are installed by FruitSecurity. All these international experiences make our systems a bit better every year.
