Smartmesh panels by Shurloc are the easy way to stretch on Newman Roller Retensionables. The mesh never touches the channel edges or old locking strips that can have burrs on them that can cause mesh to tear. The panels have locking strips already attached that clip into the channels easily for faster stretching. The mesh rests on these strips and avoid sharp edged channels. This is especially helpful on older Newman Frames with dents or nicks.
S Mesh stretches much safer on Newman Roller Frames with Smartmesh Panels by Shurloc. Shurloc panels also help to re-mesh older Newman Roller Frames that may have dents or nicks along the channel normally used to capture the mesh since the mesh when tensioned rests only on the plastic capture strip adhered to the mesh panel.
