Unlike a leaf net, it makes sense to leave the safety net on the pond throughout the year – as unfortunately one never knows in advance when an accident might actually occur. Every season has its own particular perils and can therefore pose a risk. A thinly frozen pond in winter is an attraction for children – but if, fascinated by the element of water in its winter form, they step onto thin ice, an accident can quickly occur. Then, once in ice-cold water, the child can very quickly contract life-threatening hypothermia.
In spring and summer, the creatures living in the pond and the blossoms and leaves floating on the surface of the water are attractive enough to draw a curious child too close to the water. And in the autumn, it’s the colorful leaves and the rubber boot season that make the water so attractive for children. Bearing all this in mind, having the pond safety net installed throughout the year is the only safe solution for your children. This allows them to explore the whole garden and the area around the pond undisturbed, while you can relax, knowing that nothing can happen.
Pond Nets Protect You From a Soaking
A dangerous path that leads past the pond, grandchildren playing in the garden, etc. – there are many reasons to install a pond net to protect people. To achieve suitable fall protection, Safetynet365 offers pond covering nets which are similar to the fall safety nets used on building-sites. These are installed by owners of garden ponds or the like, to prevent adults, children and pets from falling into the water.
But above all, pond nets are an excellent investment to protect children – as children, being playful, are liable to overlook dangers even when warned countless times against going near the water. Also, most children can’t swim until they reach school age or even beyond. A pond net is therefore the best and most important child protection measure if you want to be sure that your children or grandchildren are safe by the garden pond.
These covering nets for ponds are stable enough to catch a fully-grown adult. Due to the extendibility of the material, it is important to take into account how far the net stretches towards the surface of the water under a load – as a net by itself doesn’t help: only the correct installation of a pond net can prevents more serious accidents.
Robust Material And Well-Thought-Out Measurements
The pond nets to protect people have a material thickness of 5 millimeters and a mesh size of between 45 and 100 millimeters. The pond net is equipped with a reinforced border running all around and delivery also includes with an additional border rope. This not only makes it easier to anchor the net, but also reinforces the edge of the net, which is subject to exceptionally heavy strain in an emergency.
The high-performance net is made of a high tenacity, hard-wearing polypropylene fabric which is knotless. It can remain on the pond for many years without decomposing due to UV rays or water.
An interesting and definitely worthwhile option is to combine a safety net and a leaf net in one net. If the safety net has small enough meshes, then both leaves and people will unfailingly be caught by the net above the surface of the pond, without ever touching the water. No safety net is more efficient!
