Diamond Nets Incorporated is located in the northwest corner of Washington State. Along with several other cordage manufacturers, the factory was born from the commercial fishing boom, which dominated Washington State’s exports along with Timber and some Agriculture. The factory sites in a rural setting, surrounded by fields and shadowed only by Mount Baker and the Cascades to the east.
Inside the 33,600 square foot complex, the manufacturing process is divided up into five sections. The largest and main area of the plant is set up for our net looms. Then in all, they enable us to build knotted netting from twine 1/32″ in diameter up to 3/8″ rope. Braided or twisted fibers, single strand or double strand; our diverse manufacturing capability allows us to produce debris nets capable of catching automobiles at the same time as we are manufacturing wispy thin web suitable for catching butterflies.
Beyond the manufacturing area is the finishing room where netting can be processed to your specifications. During the shrinking process to lock the knots tight, you may also choose from a variety of dye colors. Fibers that do not accept nylon textile dyes such as polyester and UHMWPE can be colored using urethane bonding as a carrier for pigments. In addition to bondings that add body the netting, coatings such as asphalt, fire retardant and anti-foulants are available. Finishes are available in as heavy or light of consistency as required for your needs. Knots can also be pulled tight mechanically with up to 50 tons of pressure. All nets are dried with forced air heat up to 200 degrees after finishing to ensure a well set and moisture free product arrives at your dock.

Next to the main building is our finished net area. Here we can provide our customers with a value added service of completed product if they choose. We can supply rope borders and hardware to your nets if desired. Netting can also be cut on to the square and cargo style nets can be hand spliced together from rope if needed.

Pallets are shrink-wrapped and/or strapped to avoid lost goods during transport.
