“A fall from a height is likely to result in a serious injury. By installing safety nets below a high-level work area, there is less likelihood that the person will be injured if they fall.
Regardless of the time spent on a roof, the risk of falling is high. Any fall is likely to result in a serious injury. Safety nets installed below a high-level work area reduce the distance that a worker can fall. They absorb the impact of the fall and provide a ‘soft landing’ to reduce the likelihood of a person being injured.
Safety nets are collective fall arrest systems, not fall restraint systems. That is, they provide passive protection from falls while allowing people to work at height without restricting their movement.”

Safety nets are cheaper, installed quicker compared to other alternatives, and do not interfere with continuing work on site. This ensures that we can take care of the fall hazards while the site work can continue on schedule.
We provide services across Auckland with callout lead times as short as two hours to cope with high volumes of housing demand. Our team of professional certified riggers provide the highest standard of installation service. We encourage and support our riggers throughout the process of training and certification. We grow our team together to protect construction sites and save lives.
We are compliant with the safety netting requirements in NZ: European Standards BS EN1263:1 “Safety Netting”, and BS EN1263:2 and we strive to go above and beyond the requirements. Our nets are frequently checked for compliance both on site and off site, and we ensure that their quality remains up to our standard. WorkSafe requires fall arrest systems to be put in place for construction work which would take place 1.5m above ground level. The highest safety standard is the belief of Top Safety Nets management team. We use the longest screws at 75mm length in the market to ensure the highest impact of fall are absorbed. This 75mm length is higher than current Work Safe standard of 65mm.
