Safety Net Fan | A Complete FAQ Guide
1.What Is Safety Net Fan?
The safety net fan is a complete set of components that you can use to lessen the risk of falling hazards and ensure worker’s safety. The main feature is that you can assemble all the components into a single, complete unit before installation.
You can assemble the individual components on the ground or any area into a complete setup. Once you finish, you can use a crane system to lift and position the unit at the installation area. Due to the high adaptable features, you can quickly install them on different kinds of structures.

2.What Are The Benefits Of Safety Net Fans?
The demand for a safety net is increasing day by day due to the numerous benefits. Some of the common benefits are:
- Assembly of the unit is very easy. You can use very minimal tools to assemble the components.
- It takes a very short time to assemble the components.
- The creative design prevents the debris from falling and keeps the people safe below.
- The safety fan net comes with a complete set of components. You don’t need to buy additional components for its installation.
- You can pre-assemble the complete unit before installation. For assembly, you can choose other areas or the installation area itself.
- They are excellent to withstand high wind speeds. So, you don’t have to dismantle them in natural occurrences within limited wind velocity.
- You can quickly and easily dismantle it once you have completed your work in an area. For dismantling, you don’t have to open the individual components. Rather, you can open up as a whole unit. If you want to reuse it, you can reposition to another site or area as a whole unit.
- A single set of the unit includes two to three layers of safety net. So, it is suitable for both debris and worker’s fall protection.
- You can install it on buildings with overhanging structures.
- You can directly fit the safety fan net on steel and concrete frames of structures.
- Safety net fan is suitable to use with scaffoldings.
- The creative design of the net and the frame flexibly operate to eliminate the chance that the debris might bounce off after falling on the top of the net.
- When an amount of debris is collected on top of the frame, you can easily fold the frame to remove the collected debris
- The unit is highly portable since the components are made from lightweight materials.
3.A Safety Net Fan Should Comply With Which Standards?
The safety netting is made with high-density polyethylene (HDPE). This material conforms to the standard EN 1263-1:2014.
This standard is applicable for the material that you are using to manufacture the safety net. According to the standard, in extreme weather conditions, the material must be able to retain its properties to avoid any chance of risk.
4.What Are Basic Elements Of Safety Net Fans?
The basic components are:
- Safety net:The safety net is the principal element. It prevents the debris and workers from falling. The safety net is made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), which is a heavy-duty material. There are also two to three layers of netting for complete protection.

- Top bracket:You can secure a strong connection with the floor on the top level with the top bracket. For connection, each bracket has seven holes at the base. You Use screws to secure the connection on concrete floors.
- Telescopic post:You can extend or retract a telescopic post. This is necessary if you require to customize the telescopic post with the floor height where you are installing.
- Locking brace:There are two sets of telescopic posts to hold the safety net. With the locking brace, you can lock the safety net between the telescopic posts.

- Right angle coupler:With the right angle coupler, you can attach the telescopic post with the scaffold tube of the debris net. The couplers have a diameter of 48 mm to fit the tube diameter.
- Swivel coupler:Swivel couplers are hot-dip galvanized. They are also used to attach the telescopic post with the scaffold tube of the debris net.
- Bottom bracket:With the bottom bracket, you can secure a strong connection with the floor on the bottom level with the bottom bracket. For connection, each bracket has seven holes. You use screws to secure the connection on concrete floors.
- Scaffold tube:The scaffold tube is used to hold and install the safety net.
5.Can You Install Safety Fans On Scaffoldings?
Yes, you can install them with scaffolding structures. They are highly adaptable. So, you can use it for various types of structures. If you want to install them on scaffoldings, use the additional attachment parts.

6.How Does The Safety Net Fan Work?
The net fans are made in a creative design adaptable for modern application scopes. They are designed to efficiently catch the falling person and debris. When the falling object hits the safety nets, the net and frame system acts in an elastic nature to gradually expand towards below and create a pocket to entrap the materials.
This helps to increase the surface area to reduce the impact of the sudden fall. The net will bring the object or debris to a gradual stop. Due to these two factors, the force of impact will reduce, which will save the person. Moreover, the debris will not bounce off. When the falling debris gradually loses its falling energy, it will come to a stop within the pocket.
7.Are The Safety Net Fans UV Treated?
Yes, the safety net of the frame is UV treated. This helps to keep the safety netting protected against the harmful effects of UV rays. So, you can expect extended durability for your safety net and avoid discoloration after long usage.
