|Net working platforms are a reasonable alternative for
cradles and scaffolds erected on a required height. Net working platforms can be used for
all mounting works. They allow employees to comfortably work on constructions on which our
platforms are erected. For this reason, they are cheaper than scaffolds and allow to
perform a wider range of works on the construction site. They are very effective during
fit-out works of roofs (e.g. stadium roofing) or halls after erection of their basic
construction. Additionally, they protect against the falls of workers who do not have to
use individual protection measures limiting their comfortable movement. Thanks to our
working platforms, the works on heights are performed quicker and more effectively.
working platforms consist of safety nets complying with PN-EN 1263-1 and transverse
elements which pass through the net and are made of belts. They may be used as circulation
areas and working areas. Nets and belts are located on proper construction elements which
enable safe attachment, e.g. steel constructions, trusses of glued wood, reinforced
concrete of prestressed cement, steel anchors etc.
Attaching net working platforms
Net working platforms are attached with ropes or belts every 50 cm or less. The minimum
breaking strength of ropes shall be 30 kN. Belts shall comply with norm EN 12195-1 (Load
restraint assemblies on road vehicles).
Slope and distances
The maximum slope of net working platforms shall be 20 degrees. The distance between
the slope and the lower edge of the structure shall not exceed 1.5 m.
Nets shall comply with class B1 in accordance with PN-EN 1263-1. The maximum mesh size
shall be 45x45 mm.
Attaching and fastening of belts
Belts used as transverse elements pass through the net every 10 meshes or less. Maximum
distance between the belts is 2 m x 2 m. The maximum distance between the belt and the net
edge is 2 m. Initial tensile strength in the belt is regulated manually. The minimum
horizontal loads on the anchor points shall be 2.2 kN.
Permissible deflections of net working platforms
The maximum deflection in the case of one person's load, at the most unfavorable
position, shall be 50 cm. After pulling the belts next day, the maximum deflection shall
be 30 cm.
