Truck Netting Systems

Truck Netting (Flatbed Safety Solutions) attached to flatbeds that come in and out of your facility, can ensure that your employees and third party drivers alike have all the necessary fall protection to prevent serious injuries should someone fall. Our systems create a “soft catch” barrier to safeguard workers while they load and unload products and are designed to mount directly to your facility’s floor or wall. With our seven modular flatbed solutions, each built to fulfill the specific function of your facility by reducing the risk of falls from flatbeds. These solutions are designed to minimize fall protection problems as well as the need for further training or personal protective equipment (PPE).

Falls off of flatbed trucks during loading and unloading operations are on the rise, with a lack of fall protection safety knowledge and equipment within the industry being a major contributing factor. That’s why we’ve developed only the best solutions for protecting your employees while working on flatbed trucks.
All of our standard systems can be adjusted depending on the size, weight and load requirements of your facility and customized to fit your equipment needs. We work with our in-house professional engineers and fall prevention experts to construct a system that ensures the safety of your workers. The best safety system for your facility can be determined by our experienced netting specialists. We will review your facility layout and application requirements to recommend the best solution.

Why soft catch netting?

Our netting is a soft catch product that absorbs energy as an object falls into it. The system disperses energy from impact point to guard frame, cable, and attachment points. Unlike rigid barriers, our nets are allowed to flex at impact, dissipating energy, and providing less excess force to the netting system itself, keeping your personnel and materials safe.

We meet all your custom project needs from start to finish. Our in-house engineering team will ensure quick sign-off on all custom orders and testing while meeting the exact specifications required for your equipment.

You can expect top-of-the-line products and excellent customer service. From design to installation, our team will walk you through the process and help you reach the best solution for your facility needs.

Passive Vs Active Fall Protection

Passive Fall Protection
A “passive” fall protection system refers to a system that is non-dynamic, stationary, and does not move or adapt or change when in or out of use. They do not require the use of Personal Protective Equipment or active participation from the worker. Typical passive solutions include Guardrails or Netting Systems. This is the preferred choice for its ease of use without the need for additional training and PPE.
Active Fall Protection
An “active” Fall Protection System requires the use of special equipment and participation by the worker. There are two types of Active Fall Protection Systems, fall restraint and fall arrest systems. These systems share the common feature of securing the worker wearing a full-body harness to an anchorage point with some type of connecting system, depending on the application. Active Fall Protection Systems include Fall Arrest Anchors, Roof Anchors, and Safety Harness’.
