Injuries resulting from a fall into an open pit can amount to fines, lawsuits or both. Using ALCO Bay safety net systems makes your workplace safer, and can boost productivity by improving worker morale.
ALCO Bay safety nets are designed to catch a person falling into the floor opening. They are fabricated and specially treated, for harsh environments and installed with aircraft cable and hardware. Our netting has a tensile strength of over 3 tons.
