Safety netting that meets European Standard En 1263-1

All of the safety netting supplied by Leon de Oro Nets (UK) Ltd comply with the European Stanard En 1263-1 “Safety Netting”. Because we a re part of a major European manufacturer we have the benefit of Tecnologia Deportiva's involvement in the development if international standards.

Because of the expertise and capability of Tecnology Deportiva, the company was asked to become a member of the Working Group CEN/TC53/WG7 of the European committee for Standardisation (CEN), the group responsible for the standard.

The European UNE-EN 1263-1 Standard was approved by the said committee in 1997. The standard replaces UNE 81-650 of 1980 and establishes the minimum requirements with which all safety netting must comply within the EU and other territories who belong to the CEN.

The UNE-EN 1263-1 defines four systems of safety netting and the appropriate uses for each of them:

Type S: Safety Net with border rope and dimensions over 35 sqm, the smallest side being over 5m in length, for horizontal use in industrial warehouses, bridges and special works.

Type T: Safety Net fastened to consoles for horizontal use.

The EN 1263-1 standard also establishes the requirements which must be complied with by the ropes used to fasten and join nets, safely.

All safety nets supplied by Deportiva Tecnologia and Leon de Oro Nets (UK) Ltd comply with these regulations.

All nets manufactured to these standards are supplied with test patches which can be used to test the ageing of the nets without recourse to their removal from service. The test patches are supplied with a high security seal marked with the name and unique registration number for the safety net.

Each net supplied can be identified by a label which displays the following unique information

  • The name of the manufacturer
  • The address of the manufacturer
  • Type of safety net
  • Dimensions of safety net
  • Registration number
  • Date of manufacture of the net
