Professional Hand Net (Standard 250mm Wide Frame)
A very sturdy but lightweight hand net for routine aquatic sampling, field centre use and river sampling. The outer frame is 250mm wide aluminium alloy with an inner brass ring supporting the net. These hand nets include a 30cm deep `standard' net in either 1mm (for general sampling) or 2mm (for e.g. amphibians). The overall length of the net is approximately 150cm.
Conforms to Environment Agency Specifications
Available with either a wooden or aluminium handle.
The wooden handle (British Ash) means these nets will float if dropped and will remain comfortable to hold in cold water. The outer frame is 250mm wide aluminium alloy with an inner brass ring supporting the net.
The advantage of the aluminium handle, apart from its price, is that the weight is reduced to less than half that of the wooden handle. The dimensions of the aluminium handle are identical to the wooden handle so it can be used as a replacement for wooden handles without any adverse influence on previous research. The disadvantages of the aluminium handle is that it is cold in winter as well as being vulnerable to denting or bending when used beyond normal practice. Aluminium handles also conduct electricity and care should be taken when using near overhead power lines.
