FAQs

How strong is debris netting?

The strength of debris netting depends on the size of the mesh. Mesh starts at 1mm and goes up to 150 mm depending on your requirements.

How much does debris netting cost?

Debris or scaffold netting varies significantly on the requirements for each project. Unfortunately is it very difficult for us to give any meaningful indication of price with out performing site survey.

Please don’t hesitate to call us. We are happy to discuss your requirements and provide an estimate or quotation free of charge.

How high can a person fall into a safety net?

Regulation 6 of the Work at Height Regulations 2005 deals with the avoidance of risks from working at height. In summary the regulation requires that where falls cannot be prevented, measures are put in place to minimise the distance and consequence of a fall. In practice this means that the fall distance into a safety net must be as little as is reasonably practicable which will usually be the underside of the structure being worked on, as the greater the fall distance into a net the greater the likelihood of injury.

BS EN 1263-2: 2014 details the maximum permissible fall height into a safety net is 6m from the work position. This means that the maximum nominal fall height from the centre of gravity of a person is 7m.

It should be noted that for safety nets less than 35m2 in total area, or a side length less than 5m the maximum height an operative is allowed to work above a net is 2m as there is insufficient fabric area to absorb the energy of falls from a greater height.

What is the difference between scaffold netting, debris netting and safety netting?

A safety net is installed horizontally to catch persons should they fall when working at height when it is impossible to directly prevent a fall.

Debris Netting & Scaffold Netting is the same thing. It is used to contain debris and prevent any debris from falling off a scaffolding platform. It usually mounted vertically on scaffolding.

Where is a safety net used?

Primarily, safety nets are used in the construction and building maintenance industries to provide safety for persons who work at height e.g., installers or maintainers of roofs.

Sometimes, safety netting is used on demolition sites and other specialist projects where is it used as containment netting and debris retention.

Safety netting is also widely used in sports facilities to prevent balls from causing damage to people and property.
