StingerBend innovative jellyfish nets
Elements Works has patented (PATENT PENDING) an innovative barrier against ocean stinger (like jellyfish) called StingerBend which by bending adapts itself automatically to a varying water depth, therefore performing well in a diverse set of conditions:
- water depth at the site varies from point to point
- there are significant tidal ranges
- the barrier stays in place also in the presence of significnat swell.
The barriers can be used as jellyfish nets, to create confined spaces useful for elders or people with disabilities, or to help in projects for the mitigation of coastal erosion, as an alternative or in conjunction with fixed or wave blocking barriers.
Simplicity of installation and removal: after a brief training or even by simply reading the user manual, assembly and removal can be executed by local personnel, even several times in a week depending on local conditions.
Elements Works, always very sensitive to the environment, has designed a jellyfish net that does not obstruct plancton by using an 8mm net (but of course a smaller net can be used in sites with specific risks associated with small organisms); this allows for the passage of spores, eggs and larvae thus keeping the coastal area alive but nevertheless protected wrom stingers like Pelagia noctiluca or Carybdea marsupialis.
