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, and can result in costly operational downtime.

The Dropsafe Nets are a range of stainless steel wire nets that enclose and tether overhead fixtures, such as lights, speakers, self-retracting lifelines, CCTV cameras, and pipe clamps. These fixtures are at risk of becoming dropped objects in industrial environments due to either corrosion, vibration, poor maintenance or impact from other equipment.

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

Each Dropsafe Net is designed for a specific fixture type, taking into consideration the dimensions, mounting bracket configuration and weight of the fixture to ensure a correct fit. This is critical to minimise shock load in the case of a drop and ensure the net performs.

Adopted as ‘standard’ by businesses worldwide, the Dropsafe Net has become the accepted best practice method for secondary securing across a wide variety of applications in diverse industrial sectors. This is due to the extensive third-party testing of each model; the versatility of its robust, tried-and-tested design; and, its quick, tool-free installation.

It has been widely recognised that solutions such as single-slings, and makeshift imitations or DIY versions of the Dropsafe Net are inadequate at preventing Drops and not cost-effective in the long-term. These solutions fail to provide the same high standard of manufacturing assurance and quality required for safety products being used in harsh industrial environments.
