More Description of Scaffold Netting

Debris nettings are the most common scaffold nettings in construction sites.
These debris nettings are perfect for protecting pedestrians and traffic from falling debris, shade screens scaffolding enclosures, and windscreens, and are widely used in constructions.

The debris nettings are UV resistant, tear-resistant, and fire-resistant. All APAC debris netting is tested and approved to meet the OSHA standard 1926.502 and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) document A10.11, “Safety Requirements for Personnel and Debris Nets.”

Compared with Lyta Mesh, We bond tight debris netting and Steel-plastic grid strictly to make it have superior tensile strength and reliable protective properties.

Quality Meets Excellence


This scaffold netting provides a high level of tear resistance while containing small and chunky debris. Finished hemmed edges and reinforced eyelet button holes allow scaffolding netting rolls to be fastened easily, safely, and securely. The netting rolls are packed tightly in clear poly bags with branded labels so they can be shipped and handled easily.

In addition to being tested and approved for industrial and construction applications, APAC Scaffold Netting also comes with a warranty.


Trending FAQ

Scaffold Netting | The Ultimate FAQ Guide

The scaffold netting is used in construction sites on the scaffolding. You need to install them at the exterior edges surrounding the scaffold perimeter. It will contain the debris within a secured perimeter to protect the exterior pedestrian, workers, or surrounding people from the risk of accidents.

Moreover, the workers who work on elevated heights on the scaffolding work with extreme risks during the construction works. The scaffold netting keeps them protected at elevated heights from the risk of falling down and getting injured. So, the scaffold netting is a critical safety element within the construction site.

There are mainly two types of scaffold netting. These are:

Debris netting:

Debris netting is used to ensure the safety of workers and pedestrians from the risk of falling debris near the scaffolding. Falling debris can hurt or injure any person below. Especially if the debris falls from elevated heights, the risk and seriousness of an injury are very high. So, the debris netting is installed for a suitable protection system.

One of the important features of debris netting is the mesh size. You need a mesh size that can efficiently trap the debris to reduce the risk of any hazard. Manufacturers offer debris mesh with very small mesh opening sizes like 1/16”, 5/32”, or 1/4″ to efficiently entrap all kinds of debris.Debris Scaffold Netting

Safety netting

Safety netting is used to ensure the safety of workers from the risk of falling. The workers use scaffoldings in construction sites to gain a better position while working on extended heights. They provide a better working platform to the workers. But working on scaffoldings is very risky. Any accidents from such elevated heights can result in serious injuries.

So, the scaffolding safety nets are used to create an enclosed containment. It helps to keep the workers protected from falling over and avoid any form of injury. It also creates a visual barrier around the exterior perimeter of the edge. It helps to create a safety sense among workers to keep themselves away from the dangerous edge.

Safety mesh sheets are sometimes used as an alternative to safety netting. They also perform the same as safety netting, but there are differences in their properties. The safety nets are made from strings or rope, whereas the safety meshes are made from plastic strands. So, safety meshes are more sturdy with evenly shaped openings. They can offer better protection.

The scaffold netting is manufactured from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), which is a high-strength material. They are UV stabilized so that they can withstand harmful UV rays to avoid discolor and degradation. Additional treatments are done to increase the durability of the scaffold netting.

The scaffold nettings are available in the following colors:

    • Black
    • Dark green
    • Blue
    • Yellow
    • Red
    • Orange Clear scaffold netting

The scaffold netting can benefit you in the following ways:

  • Installing the scaffold netting will help you comply with the legal safety requirements.
  • The scaffold netting can increase the safety and security measures at any job site.
  • It creates a scaffolding enclosure at the edge perimeter of the scaffolding.
  • It keeps the workers working on scaffoldings safe at elevated heights.
  • The workers and pedestrians working below or passing nearby are kept safe from the risk of falling debris.
  • A construction windscreen is created.
  • The added visual barrier creates a safety sense among workers.
  • The safety nets allow air to pass through them for sufficient ventilation.

While choosing scaffolding netting, you must consider a few things to ensure that you are opting for the correct safety element. These are:

    • Mesh size:Always check for the mesh size of the scaffold netting. This is critical to ensure that the scaffold netting will be performing its function. Follow OSHA requirements for safety netting for workers with a minimum mesh size of 6” at each side.
      If you are looking for a safety net for debris protection, choose the one with a smaller mesh size to ensure that all the debris can be entrapped. In general, you will find mesh sizes of 1/32”, 1/16”, 5/32”, or 1/4″ for debris protection.
    • Material:Most scaffolding netting is made from HDPE, which is a good material for scaffold nettings. You can also choose this material for efficient performance.
    • Eyelet holes:The eyelets holes are used for the fastening of scaffold netting. Try to choose the scaffold netting that comes with reinforced eyelet buttons.

  • Fire retardant:Ensure the scaffold nets you are choosing are with fire retardant properties to ensure safety for fire protection.
  • UV stabilization:The UV stabilized materials can offer you extended durability.
  • Reinforcement:Since the scaffold nettings are important for safety concerns, you must always make sure they are sufficiently reinforced for safety. Choose the scaffold nets that have reinforced edges to prevent them from ripping.

The main differences between horizontal and vertical scaffold netting are in terms of setup and purpose. The vertical scaffold nettings are installed vertically on the scaffold structures. They will create a direct containment to trap all kinds of debris within the working platform.

The vertical scaffold nettings will eliminate any scope of debris or workers from falling off the working platform. The most common vertical scaffold nettings are safety meshes with a sturdy design. But you can use the net material as well. If you use the net for vertical scaffold nettings, you must ensure that you are installing it with sufficient rigidity for its efficient operation.

The horizontal scaffold nettings are installed horizontally and reach out towards the exterior direction from the scaffolding. Compared to vertical scaffold netting, they protect any falling object or workers from reaching the ground. They are an essential part of the fall protection system. Since they are designed to protect falling workers, the manufacturers make them with heavy-duty material to ensure the required strength.

OK, good observation.

The main application of scaffold netting is to protect.

First, these nets protect workers and the public from objects dropped off of a scaffold, and can also help minimize property damage from falling tools or materials. Whether falling is taking place on the second floor or the fifty-second floor, the injury is everyone’s worst nightmare.

Second, brick-and-mortar-removal projects may produce a lot of dust. The scaffold netting prevents the dust from construction site to polluting the atmosphere of towns and cities.

Third, since concrete structures need proper curing to achieve desirable strength, it must be made sure that the concrete stays wet and cured most of the time. The scaffold netting can used as shade cloth. They are used to maintain ventilation thus preventing excess humidity.

And the green scaffold netting helps in the following ways:

  1. Green color is pleasant to eyes,it relieves construction workers’ visual fatigue.
  2. The green color of the scaffold netting cuts down the sunray to the concrete structure, better for the result of curing.
  3. Compared to dark or white, green cover makes a building under construction more striking to other adjacent architectures.So that people in the neighborhood take adequate safety precautions when passing by.
