Mesh size (IM): Distance between two knots or connections of a mesh rope measured from the centre to the centre of these connections.
Class: Classification of the net with regard to energy absorption capacity and mesh size.
Nets classification: This standard specifies 4 classes of net with maximum mesh sizes (IM) and nominated values of energy which may act on the net (EA and EB) as follows:
Class A1: EA = 2,3 KJ; IM = 60 mm
Class A2: EA = 2,3 KJ; IM = 100 mm
Class B1: EB= 4,4 KJ; IM= 60 mm
Class B2: EB= 4,4 KJ; IM= 100 mm
