Debris netting is one of the most cost-effective and efficient means to provide safety and ensure the integrity of a construction site. Netting works in a number of ways to keep workers, pedestrians, structures and equipment safe. Safety netting is that it’s portable, reusable and versatile.The netting can be installed in various ways:
Installed horizontally, debris netting installed helps ensure that falling debris from construction does not come in contact with pedestrians or other workers below site. Additionally, it protects the structure, and surrounding structures, from damage due to debris as well. Horizontal netting can also be placed on pits and other open areas during as a cost-effective means to prevent fall hazards by both providing a visual alert and physically blocking the open area.
Installed vertically, debris netting can provide a high-visiblity barrier to pedestrians in the immediate vicinity and prevent them from entering areas that are dangerous due to construction work being performed. Additionally, vertical netting contains debris and confines it to the work area, thus protecting streets and pavements. Netting can also serve at a guardrail system for protecting workers without the use of mid-rail and toe boards, provided the netting meets the applicable OSHA standards.
Debris netting is easy to install, remove, and store for future reuse. Making it one of the most cost-effective materials on a construction site.
