Choose The Right Safety Netting Systems​

Construction safety nets must be heavy-duty and incorporate a UV coating to stand up to the elements outdoors. They provide debris containment, personnel fall protection or both and are available for various commercial construction builds. Industrial safety nets are typically lighter but just as strong and often include a flame retardant protection for added safety. They are ideal for many material handling applications and available in pre-packaged or custom configurations.

Product Lines

  • An ideal netting system is one that can reliably catch personnel and debris—and DBI-SALA® offers a single solution that does both. Our Border Guard™ system is the first lightweight debris/personnel system made for rigging nets around the perimeter of new concrete buildings and is a convenient, economical way to ensure protection, confidence and productivity at your building site. It allows single floor attachment for closer protection at the pour level, and unlike alternative systems, Border Guard™ comes in convenient units and installs with sturdy hardware that's half the weight of the old style net systems.​


  • Four basic Adjust-A-Net™ models fit any size or shaped work spaces. You can shrink one down for compact areas, reduce one side or the other for long, narrow applications or snap two together for the largest areas.

    This system is designed to reliably catch falling personnel and an optional debris liner can be added to also catch jobsite debris.​


  • Flying Form nets are made for today’s multi-story buildings that use “flying forms” to construct concrete floors. Even though there are no tie-off anchorages above, it protects workers while they’re placing the forming deck. They are "one-time" only installations and provide passive fall arrest and debris retention.​


  • ​Its highly visible, bright orange mesh protects workers near building edges as a guardrail, and replaces mid-rail and toe boards, making it less expensive and easier to install. Designed for use with traditional cable set-ups, the nets are easy to remove, relocate, handle and store. Snap-on cable clips are available for easy attachment to the cables. The bottom edge of the net is quickly secured using a power tool that fires a nail into the tie-down plate.​


  • ​Pour-In-Place netting provides personnel fall protection on unprotected floor openings. It’s designed to cover small voids such as stairwells, mechanical chases or elevator shafts, by being poured into the concrete. Custom sizes are available. The system is constructed from durably nylon mesh and provides passive fall arrest and debris retention.​


  • ​Our floor-to-ceiling panels provide complete containment of project debris and are strong enough to meet guardrail requirements for personnel. Debris panels are easily connected to a top and bottom cable and are reusable throughout the life of the project. Multiple floors can be protected, prior to clean up, and then nets can be rotated upward, ahead of the cladding or glazing operations.​


  • ​This customized SINCO™ netting was specifically developed and stringently tested for conveyor guard applications. It is a simple falling-objects solution to protect both the in-transit item as well as personnel working around the conveyor. The flexibility of our conveyor guards can protect virtually any conveyor configuration, and keep things moving safely and efficiently.​


  • ​Customized rack guard netting systems protect employees, the public and products with netting tested specifically for rack guarding applications. Our safety rated systems provide everything you need including mounting hardware for complete ease of installation. System types include; flush mounted, offset mounted, mezzanine, inventory control and shelf backing, flow racks, storage security and partitions and more.​
