1. Installation of Horizontally Spanned Safety Nets

  • Personnel safety nets on buiding-sites
  • Fall safety nets for stair wells
  • Fall safety nets for ponds/pools

Building-site nets have to be anchored at stable, load-bearing points. For measuring each suspension point a characteristic load of at least 6 kN with an angle of 45° must be adopted. The suspension points must not be positioned more than 2.50 m apart. You will find further information under Building-Site Safety Netting Guidelines.

 

1.1 Suspension Ropes

Safety Net Assembly, Mounting With Suspension Ropes

Suspension ropes are an approved anchorage system for construction safety nets in conformity with DIN EN 1263 and BG regulation no. 179. (single-strand suspension). The suspension points must not be positioned more than 2.50 m apart. The side of the loop is affixed to the net. With the free end, the net is then knotted to the suspension point.

Recommended interval: 2.50 m maximum
