Dropsafe Net

Description

The Dropsafe Net is a widely adopted safety solution that securely encloses and tethers overhead fixtures to prevent dropped and falling objects.

How the Dropsafe Net Works

Overhead fixtures represent a significant Dropped Object risk. Should these fixtures become loose and fall, they pose a threat to both personnel and critical equipment below.

The Dropsafe Net is a steel wire mesh net which encloses and tethers overhead fixtures, such as lights, speakers, self-retracting lifelines, CCTV cameras, and pipe clamps.

The patented Dropsafe Net encloses the item being secured, while the integrated securing cable attaches around a structural attachment point. This prevents both the item and fixture components from falling.

Adopted as ‘standard’ by businesses worldwide, the Dropsafe Net has become the accepted best practice method for secondary securing.

Case Studies

Incident 1: Flood Light

Dropsafe Net contains light fixture component which could have resulted in a serious on-board incident.

During a routine inspection it was discovered that a light mounted high up in the structure had a detached light shade and impact guard due to corrosion on the fixture. The Dropsafe Net fitted to the fixture contained the loose items, preventing them dropping from considerable height.

Incident 2: Crane Boom Light

Dropsafe prevents fixture and components becoming a potentially serious dropped object incident.

During lifting operations, a crane boom light collided with an access ramp, breaking the mounting base and shattering part of the fixture. Fortunately, the light had been fitted with a Dropsafe Net the previous day, which stopped both the fixture and the shattered components falling, preventing a potentially serious dropped object incident.

Incident 3: Down Light Mounting Bracket

Dropsafe retains a down light that broke away from its mounting bracket, preventing a potentially serious incident.

During maintenance an electrician found that one of the explosion proof lights had come away from its mounting bracket. Jarring operations were conducted the previous day which may have caused the mounting bracket failure. The light had been installed with a Dropsafe Net, which contained and tethered the fixture preventing a potentially serious incident.
