THE BUSINESS OF SCAFFOLDING

Safety Netting

AGS’s site operatives are fully trained in safety net installation procedures and are FASET approved. All nets are manufactured and installed to BS EN1362 Parts 1 and 2 of the European Standard for the erection of safety nets. Netting can be supplied and installed to suit any size of building and work can be carried out anywhere in Ireland. New build, refurbishment and specialist installations are catered for with vertical, horizontal, or debris netting.

Safety nets are the "preferred method of fall arrest when working at height". Safety nets protect workers on building sites, preventing serious injury and death.

The benefits of safety nets:

  • Unlike Personal Protection Equipment [PPE] safety nets allow workers to move freely
  • They provide collective protection for all work and transportation in a secured area
  • Should anyone fall, net provides a softer landing than rope because of its large deformations
    • All our netting complies with the stringent European regulations. Our safety nets are certified and bear the appropriate EN Safety mark.

      Edge Protection

      Our new system is based on an aluminium tube attached to the structural steelwork complete with a safety net covering the roof overhang detail which has been independently designed and tested in accordance with EN 1263-1, and EN-1263-2.

      AGS offers affordable protection whilst working at height throughout Ireland.
