A construction site can be unpredictable. One minute, everything is calm and on schedule; the next minute, an unforeseen accident can shut the whole area down. Safety issues are a construction project’s kryptonite, so supervisors and project coordinators take every precaution necessary to ensure their workers are cared for.
One such option is netting. These can secure a small portion of a site or surround the entire thing to maximize protection. Regardless of your approach, you’re investing in worker safety, which can yield long-term benefits to project efficiency and even employee morale.
Here are five types of industrial safety netting we offer that can help make your construction site an overall safer place to operate:
1. Construction Debris Netting: The tools on a construction site and the byproduct of their work can leave a lot of unaccounted-for, randomly scattered pieces. From the most significant pieces to the tiniest ones, a swift gust of wind or an errant human movement can send those pieces into the middle of the process and hurt someone or something.
Debris netting consists of small, mesh material designed to prevent materials of all sizes from entering the construction site. They’re not a long-term plan, though. This construction mesh netting is a temporary fix, so use it deliberately and to its fullest potential before removing it from an area.
2. Landfill & Debris Netting: Because construction debris netting is seen as a temporary stop-gap, something with a bit more substance that is designed to withstand is needed on occasion. That’s where landfill & debris netting comes in.
This brand of construction mesh netting is built to last and is intended to be a permanent fixture around a landfill. That means any windblown item or object that should enter or leave an area will be kept out — including human or four-legged intruders.
Because environmental elements vary worldwide, this netting requires specific installation requirements depending on the weather. Our team has experience putting these up in all kinds of weather and understands the nuance needed to help these nets live up to their billing.
3. Recycle & Waste Netting: This variation of construction mesh netting shares many traits with its cousin, landfill & debris netting. Each one uses specialty netting and is built to keep unwanted objects and people out of the enclosed area.
Where these nets differ from those surrounding landfills is two-fold: the layout and recycling netting allows for more activity within its confines.
4. Breakaway Netting: Windy, disruptive thunderstorms can muck up progress and leave a permanent mark on whatever your team has been tasked with doing. Breakaway netting is an investment in halting and limiting that damage.
Breakaways can be released when a strong storm, ice, or wind forecast is either on its way or in progress. Once deployed, it can jump into action and keep your crew, equipment, and project safe.
5. Retractable Netting: Construction mesh netting can take a lot of time to install and take down. But what if you could put up and take down a net with just the crank of a wheel?
Professionals install retractable netting, but it can quickly be taken down by the on-site team and assessed for damage. Like other nets, it can keep objects out, but the ability of the people in the area to look for vulnerabilities means the site staff is safer from unforeseen intruders.
Your construction site and the people (and objects) inside it are worth protecting. Industrial safety netting keeps them safe from all angles and able to focus on the task at hand.
