Services

Fall Arrest Systems

Fall arrest and restraint systems are designed to provide protection to end-users at risk of falls. Pro-Net Safety Services offer a selection of modern high performance fall arrest/restraint systems for use on modern structures and roofs.

The Pro-Net System offers a cost effective performance solution for the majority of your requirements.

Fall Arrest System

The design principle will protect end users from serious injury, as it greatly reduces the effects of a fall. The end user can reach a point were a fall could potentially occur.

To allow this design principle to function correctly a minimum fall clearance distance of six meters is required. This is needed to incorporate shock absorbing lanyard deployment and cable deflection, along with the size (height) of end users. A correctly designed system will arrest an end user in the event of a fall (after 2m) preventing the end user from hitting the deck.

Fall Restraint System

This design principle stops the end user from reaching any position where a fall can occur, still providing the full and unrestricted access to all areas of the roof as required (gutters, fans roof lights etc) and is the recommended choice of system.

Permanent Edge Protection

Pro-Guard 2000 // Cantilevered Edge Protection System

This revolutionary guardrail system provides permanent edge protection without the need to mechanically fix through the roofing membrane or building’s structure. The system has been specifically designed to provide permanent edge protection where regular access for maintenance and inspections is required.

The strength, stability and safety of the system is derived from a simple cantilever principle, hence there is no need to drill and puncture the roof membrane, as with traditional systems. This therefore avoids noise disturbance during installation and potential penetrative water damage.

The system has been specifically designed to fit all shapes and sizes of flat roofs, even circular designs. The system can also cope with changes in levels, roof falls and difficult details, such as ductwork passing over the roof edge and cable trays / plant mounted at the roof edge. The counterweight & Safeclamp design allows the system to be used on plant congested roofs and this flexibility makes even the most difficult details possible.

Pro-Guard // Fixed Edge Protection System

Pro-Guard components are an innovative, and versatile product that are used in the construction of railings, safety barriers, racks, greenhouses, structural framework, and thousands of other uses. Pro-Guard components are installed using only a standard hex key – no threading or welding required. No headaches about hot-permits, specialised labour or equipment. No pre-fabrication of tube structures in shop – everything can be assembled and built on site. They are also reusable should you wish to dismantle or redesign your structure. The possible applications are only limited by your imagination!
