Webnet from Jakob Rope Systems is a suitable safety net for lookouts that is functional and reliable without dominating the appearance. Used as horizontal and vertical fall protection, it is approved by the German Institute of Structural Engineering (DIBt). It is durable and resistant to corrosion at minimal maintenance costs.
Classic applications of Webnet as a safety net include fences and barriers, balcony railings, vertical safety nets on lookout platforms, and horizontal fall preventions around helipads. The stainless steel mesh adapts to any geometry and can be painted in any color.
Vertical safety nets
Vertical safety nets out of Webnet are often used as fall prevention or additional protection. They supply reliable safety for balconies, galleries, or outdoor terraces with a minimal impact on free sight. The stainless steel mesh integrates into many architectural styles. Coloring options and the many varieties of wire diameters make the mesh fully adaptable to the needs of the project.
Horizontal safety nets
Horizontal safety nets with Webnet provide efficient protection against falls. The high translucency of the net makes it almost transparent and lets natural light shine through.
Horizontal protection netting
Webnet is an efficient solution for large-scale protection nets against falling objects. Up to six meters wide and eight meters height, no additional supporting ropes are required, which makes the structures elegant in appearance.
Thanks to its translucency, Webnet lets enough sunlight pass through and is almost invisible. This effect can be increased by the choice of the appropriate cable dimension, the use of the sleeveless variety, and spectral colorization.
Safety for monuments
On monuments with great crowd sizes, safety without compromising free sight is essential. Webnet fulfills the exigencies that are made on a safety net for monuments: it is low in maintenance, provides a free view, and doesn't have a negative visual impact on historic buildings.
Helipad safety nets
On landing platforms for helicopters, reliable safety netting is required, as strong winds can occur during take-offs and landings. Jakob Rope Systems has fitted numerous helipads with surrounding safety nets, preventing falls and requiring little maintenance.
