Safety Nets are manufactured and sold into the construction industry supporting the safe assembly of buildings. 


EN 1263-1:2002 : This European standard is applicable to safety nets and their accessories for use in construction industry, scaffolding, assembly work & specifies safety requirements and test methods used.

Specification of a Safety Net

Safety Nets are made up from the following components:

 Base Net (Mesh Rope)

 Test Mesh/Cord

 Border Rope

 Tie Rope

 Marking & Labels

 System

Base Net (Mesh Rope):

 Material: Polypropylene

 Cord Size (mesh rope): 4.5mm

 Mesh Size: 100mm Square Mesh

 Mesh Configuration: Q (Square Mesh)

 Minimum Break: 2390n (ISO1806)

Test Mesh/Cord:

Test/mesh/cords are worked into the safety net and should be removed yearly and sent for testing to determine if any deterioration due to ageing has occurred without impairing the performance of the net.

 Test mesh/cords are manufactured from the same net as the base net class A2

 Test procedure: ISO1806

 Minimum break: 2390n (ISO1806)

Border Rope (Rope K)

 Material: Sicorsteel

 Colour: White + blue marker

 Rope size: 14mm

 Breaking strength: Minimum in 30Kn in accordance to EN919

Tie Rope (Rope M)

 Material: Nylon

 Colour: White

 Rope size: 13mm

 Breaking strength: Minimum 30Kn in accordance to EN919

Properties of PP (Polypropylene)

Thermal Properties

Softening Point ~ Polypropylene plastifies about 150 - 155oc

Effect of High Temperature

Melts at 1750c

Effect of Low Temperature

Polypropylene retains its flexibility at very low temperature and does not become rigid under freezing conditions.

Flammability on the normal PP

Burns slowly in air, fine filaments tend to melt and drop away before propagating a flame.

Chemical Properties

PP, being a paraffin hydrocarbon is inherently chemically inert and highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals at ordinary temperatures. PP fibres have a high resistance to acids and alkalis at all concentrations. They are attacked by nitric acid. They are insoluble in most common organic solvents at room temperature.

PP is an outstanding electrical insulator, especially to high frequency currents.

Insects and Micro-organisms

The fibres are not digested by insects and are completely resistant to bacteria, mildew and other micro-organisms. This makes them virtually rot proof.


Properties of Nylon

Thermal Properties

Softening Point

Nylon softens at 235-2400c

Effect of High Temperature

Melts at 2600c

Effect of Low Temperature

Nylon retains its flexibility at very low temperature and does not become rigid under freezing conditions.

Flammability of nylon

Burns with difficulty will not maintain combustion, stick pt 235oc - 240 oc, melting pt 260 oc, burns with a smell of celery.
