Fall Arrest Safety Netting
ProNet Safety Services supply and install a range of safety net solutions which are aimed at protecting onsite personnel who work at heights and those who are at risk from falling equipment and debris.
Safety nets are regarded by the Health and Safety Executive as being the "preferred method of fall arrest when working at heights" and this why each net must comply with certain British and International Standards as well as being tested on a regular basis.
There are numerous advantages associated with fall arrest safety nets, these include:
- A collective approach to safety
- Free movement and not as restrictive for both above and below work
- Minimises and standardises fall distance with softer landings
- Broad range of systems, components and accessories to suit most construction projects and buildings
- Meets British and European Standards
Safety Net Fans
ProNet can also supply and install Safety Net Fans (SNF's); these are another variant of the standard safety net that perform several specific functions where both personnel and property are protected.
The benefits of using SNFs can be summarised as:
- Simple and easy to install
- Versatile – used on most building types and can be adapted as structures change and progress
- Improved all round protection for people whether they are working at heights or at risk from falling debris
- Meets British and European Standards and both absorb and contain falling objects and people
- Improved access – can be easily folded away to aid with crane access and minimises restrictions on neighbouring buildings
- Adaptable – large range of attachments means SNF's can be fitted directly to buildings (concrete, steel frames) or to scaffolding
