Rigging and Positioning of Safety Fall Arrest

Safety nets should be installed as close as possible to the level of work. The working heights must not exceed 6 metres.

In addtion to this, the reduced fall height must not exceed 3 metres.

If the working area is inclined by more than 20 degrees:

  • The collecting width will be at least 3 metres
  • The distance between the extreme place of work and the lowest point of the edge of the safety net will not exceed 3 metres.

Positioning of the nets.

  1. The installation system for the System S safety nets can be different depending on the dimensions and the areas where they are to be intsalled
  2. The safety nets will be installed at the anchor points by tie ropes capable of resisting the characteristic load.
  3. The distance between the anchor points must be less than 2.5m.
  4. If various nets are used, extend the nets on the floor. Sew the nets using joining ropeensuring there are no gaps of more than 10mm.
  5. In buildings with large shafts, hooks will be used to pix the net to the edge of the roof, and the border rope will be passed over them.
  6. The hooks should be of galvanised steel and positioned every 50cm.
  7. Pass the border rope throughth efastening hooks and close the hooks to prevent the rope from coming out.
  8. Use tying cord to fix to the metal structure.
