Safety – a basic human need

Architects and designers love the polyvalent wire mesh as a ball stop fence for sports grounds and halls. For playgrounds, Jakob Rope Systems offers a broad range of products: from fiber rope nets for climbing to our wire nets for safety.

Webnet products have countless applications in the realm of sports. Ball stop fences with Webnet, for example, have many advantages over common wire-mesh fences: they are almost invisible, create no noise when a ball hits the net, and the stainless steel structure is virtually maintenance free. In gymnasiums, Webnet can protect lights and other installations on the ceiling from the impact of balls.

From aesthetic ball stop nettings to creative playgrounds with products by Jakob Rope Systems.

Ball stop fences

Ball catchers are rarely built with a focus on design. With the stainless steel mesh Webnet, however, designers do not have compromise on beauty for efficiency. The mesh is virtually invisible, noiseless and corrosion-free, making it an ideal material for ball catchers. Thanks to an improved design developed by Jakob Rope Systems, two mesh sizes within the same net are possible, reducing costs while increasing stability and functionality.


Fibre ropes and nets, steel cables and the stainless steel mesh Webnet allow designers of playgrounds a vast choice to create landscapes for children that are fun and safe. The mix of different materials is also a haptic experience for the children.


In stadia, ice halls and large sport complexes, safety and a free sight are key requirements. With the stainless steel net Webnet, architects can use a durable, certified safety net that is as translucent as possible. The net meets the security norms for handling large amounts of visitors and at the same time is extremely unimposing and elegant.

Ball protection nets

Webnet can be used as a protection net for walls and ceilings inside gymnasia and sport halls. The net reliably protects technical installations from ball hits. Thus, there is no need for expensive ball-proof lighting or other technical installations. The elegant look of the stainless steel can also be integrated into the interior architecture.

Rope parks

Rope parks are a fun entertainment for the whole family. Different levels of difficulty allow beginners and expert climbers a unique experience of seeing the world from the treetops. For Tyroliennes, climbing nets, ladders and other daring exercises, Jakob Rope Systems provides the solution.
