DuraNet® LLINs are made with polyethylene (PE) yarns (150 denier), making them much stronger than polyester (PES) or cloth nets.

DuraNet® LLINs will maintain their effectiveness for a lifetime of up to 3 years.

In addition, in DuraNet® LLINs, the insecticide is incorporated into the fibre and is control released over time.  Just the right amount of insecticide migrates to the surface over their entire lifespan.

DuraNet® eliminates the need for the retreatment that may be needed for surface treated polyester (PES) nets. This is important because people will not have to handle the insecticide used in typical retreatment and worry about its disposal.

And DuraNet® eliminates some of the concerns associated with large scale distributions of polyester (PES) nets that are all surface treated.  Unlike DuraNet®, which has the majority of its insecticide incorporated into its fibres, polyester (PES) nets have the entire amount of insecticide deposited on their surfaces. Surface treated polyester (PES) nets have caused a series of severe skin and eye irritations, and other series reactions, in people who have handled large quantities of polyester (PES) nets during mass distribution campaigns.

Choosing DuraNet® is always the wisest choice.

DuraNet® LLINs are available in a variety of colors, including dark colors, which means that dirt will not show up as it does on a white net, and people will not have to wash them as frequently.

Another important bonus of DuraNet® LLINs is that they are slightly rigid when compared to polyester nets which means that air flows through them better so people sleeping under them are cooler. Why is this important? From our experience, it’s the main reason why owners of DuraNet® LLINs like sleeping under them.

DuraNet® is available in bulk packing (without a bag) or in user friendly packaging. All packaging types include English and French user instructions.

Color does not affect the efficacy of DuraNet®, with the exception of one positive influence. Color has a beneficial effect on the longevity of DuraNet®.

Experience in the field indicates that colored nets are washed less frequently than white nets and that dark colored nets induce an even less frequent washing behaviour.

DuraNet® is available in 5 standard colors: blue (dark and light), green (dark and light) and white.

DuraNet® LLIN Customized Logo Nets

-an exciting and innovative way to maximize donor visibility and reduce costs per lives saved


As more and more country campaigns turn to NGO’s and Public Private Partnerships to help fill funding gaps to reach Universal Coverage, donor expectations are also rising.  This leaves donor recipients with the problem of providing financial accountability that includes not only facts and figures, but also practical evidence to show the actual impact that donor funds have made.

How can you provide proof that the donor funds you are managing are being spent according to donor expectations that their use provides maximum impact?
By purchasing DuraNet® LLINs with Customized Logos, the only WHOPES recommended LLINs that can offer NGO’s, Public Private Partnerships and donor recipients the ability to print a logo or message directly on an LLIN at an affordable price.


Advantages of Duranet® LLINs Customized Logo Nets

  • Maximize Financial Resources- DuraNet® Customized Logo Nets are made from polyethylene and last up to 5 years, almost twice as long as less durable polyester nets.  Donor dollars can be dedicated to saving more lives, rather than replacing inferior nets that have a shorter life span

  • Allow for Donor Recognition- The presence of a logo allows donors to be clearly identified

  • Help Attract New Donors- NGO Customized logo nets allow NGO’s to brand themselves and draw in new donors

  • Increase User Compliance- Customized logo nets can further increase an LLINs attractive appearance, further increasing the desire for user ownership and user compliance

  • Provide Traceability- DuraNet® LLINs with customized imprints can be used to easily trace distributed LLINs in surveillance and monitoring studies

  • Educational Messaging- Customized messages can be imprinted that compliment malaria education campaigns


Options Available

  • Color- DuraNet® LLINs can be produced in any color desired with no effect on efficacy, and there are no limitations on the colors available for printing logos or messages. However, it should be noted that a dark print color on a light colored net will often obtain the best visual result

  • Number of Colors: Real Relief has invested in state of the art printing equipment that can do 2-color logo printing. In the case of intricate logo designs containing more than one color, choosing just one color for printing may be preferable

  • Maximum Size of Logo or Message- 140cmWx170cmL. No minimum sizes as long as the text/logo is visible on the net
