    DBI-SALA Netting Systems

    DBI-SALA Netting Systems

    Strength & Durability for Reliable Protection

    Netting systems provide passive fall protection, which means protection that does not require the active involvement of a user. Netting Systems consist primarily of two types: personnel nets and debris nets.


    Strength, structural integrity and installation of netting systems are referenced in OSHA and ANSI regulations.


    Personnel Nets
    Personnel Nets are designed to catch personnel who fall from a bridge, building, tower, dam, silo or other structure or to catch workers in areas left undecked during construction, across atriums, shafts, stairwells and skylights.


    Personnel Nets must be erected so that the exposed user can never fall more than 25 ft. This is done to maintain the net strength and to reduce the risk of injury to the user from impacting the net. To minimize the injury due to a fall, Personnel Nets should be positioned as close as possible, below the work level.


    Debris Nets
    Debris Nets are designed to catch lightweight construction debris, tools and building materials that are dropped, kicked, pushed or blown out of place. Debris Nets can prevent falling debris from hurting people or damaging traffic below.


    Debris Nets offer protection from falling objects for the entire person; hard hats protect only the head. A perimeter Debris Net meets OSHA and ANSI standards to provide fall protection from the working surface of the floor to which it is mounted.


    Debris Net Liners
    Personnel Nets are often lined with Debris Nets so that they can catch debris as well as personnel. Debris Net Liners should be cleaned daily because a person falling on residual debris can be seriously hurt.


    Advantages of Netting Systems
    • Nets save lives and reduce lost time.
    • Workers feel more secure with nets.
    • Secure workers are more productive.
    • Nets provide protection without hampering worker performance.
    • Nets save equipment from loss, destruction or damage.
    • Nets provide visibility, ventilation and increased productivity
    when compared to planks.
    • Nets are more economical than alternatives such as scaffolding,
    stay-in-place forms, planking, etc.
    • Nets are reusable, easily re-rigged and can be factory repaired.

     

    What to Look for in a Netting System

     

     

    MESH SIZE
    Mesh is available in many sizes and strengths depending on the job and the weight and size of the debris to be contained. The most common Debris Net mesh size is 1/8 in.
    A typical Personnel Net mesh size is 3-1/2 in. Diamond-shaped mesh. The mesh dissipates impact throughout the net.


    ADJUSTABILITY
    The patented DBI-SALA
    Adjusta-Net™ is the only Personnel Net available that can be adjusted to fit the work area.

     

    NETTING MATERIAL
    Typical Netting System materials are manila, polypropylene and nylon. Nets made of nylon are 50% stronger than manila and 47% stronger than polypropylene. Nylon Nets provide a softer catch and resist chafing and abrasion. Nylon has a higher melting point of 480° vs. 300° for polypropylene. (Manila chars). Nylon Nets also absorb eight times the energy of Manila Nets and 5.3 times that of Polypropylene Nets.


    DBI-SALA Netting is rot and mildew proof and features UV protection for a longer service. Special flame retardant protection treatments can be applied at the factory for added safety, on request.

     

    SNAP HOOKS
    DBI-SALA netting systems feature a staggered system of lashed-in Snap Hooks, allowing nets to be easily connected.

     

    ANCHORING POINTS AND INSTALLATION
    DBI-SALA Netting Systems are available with the appropriate cable and hardware for installation to steel or concrete. DBI-SALA Netting Systems are lightweight and easy to handle for fast, safe installation.
