Diamond Nets is the largest safety netting manufacturing company in North America, we produce over 25 million square feet of safety netting a year. As the exclusive manufacturer of the Sky-Web II® System we have shipped over 280 million square feet of fall protection to job sites all over the world. Besides our patented Sky-Web II® System we produce hundreds of thousands of square feet of fall protection netting designed to pass ANSI A10.11 and A10.37 standards. In addition we build many types of netting for use in rack guarding and conveyor applications. Other applications include vertical debris barriers, liner materials, safety rail netting, containment netting and more. All our netting is made from DuPont® 66 nylon, so you know it’s of superior quality.
Diamond Nets also manufactures Spectra® netting to protect spectators behind home plate at major league baseball stadiums and NHL approved Kevlar® Arena netting to protect fans from pucks that make it over the glass.
If your application requires something stronger, we can build you netting from rope up to 3″ in diameter, or from Plasma braid for application such as vehicle barriers.
All these nets are available in a variety of colors and finishes. We can make your netting look like natural fiber for zoo or animal sanctuary applications to give a blended in look without sacrificing quality. For indoor applications we have fire retardant finishes which pass the NFPA 701 test for surface burning propagation of textiles and films.
Contact us for a qualified distributor near you, we’ll make sure you have the finest quality safety nets available.
What is Sky-Web II®?
The Sky Web II® Fall Protection and Insulation Support System consists of a lightweight knotted mesh manufactured from DuPont™ nylon. The diamond nylon mesh is attached to the roof using provided perimeter hardware. Once installed, it provides leading edge protection that allows workers to move freely without being tied off. Once the installation is complete the netting remains as a part of the building’s roof system, providing an attractive finished appearance that can be matched to the color of the facing on fiberglass insulation.
Passive vs. Active Fall Protection
The netting system acts as a passive restraint system that does not rely on workers to take positive action to obtain fall protection. The concept is comparable to automobile air bags (passive restraint) versus seat belts (user active restraint).
The Sky Web II® System helps increase productivity during the roofing process. The system eliminates the time that would otherwise be required for workers to untangle and tie-off lanyards, rig and unrig life lines, etc.
Tie off systems can cause a severe jolt when the lanyard stops a worker’s fall. A worker can only fall a short distance before being caught by the mesh. As with any system injuries resulting from falls onto structural members cannot be protected against.
Once installed over structural members of the roof Sky Web II® acts as fall protection that is 1926.502 Subpart M OSHA compliant. Builders who use Sky Web II® on every project may be eligible for extra premium credits, which can reduce costs for builders in selected insurance programs.
Fire Hazzard Classification
The Sky Web II® system has a flame spread index of zero and a smoke development index of 3.0 or less as tested in accordance with the U.L. 723 flame tunnel test.
Custom Manufactured to Your Needs
The Sky Web II® system is custom manufactured to the building so there is no wasted material and you only pay for what you need. Panels are available in widths up to 65′. Panels are stretched eave to eave and may cover one or two bays of the building length.
Sky-web is designed for easy efficient installation. One piece will go from eave to eave, or up to stepped roof condition and will stop at the center line of a rigid frame up to 66 feet. A V-Strap is installed on the perimeter of the building, with self drilling screws every 38 inches. The V-Strap will have 6 slots for wire rings, with 4 of these being pre-installed for convenience. The netting component is attached to these rings every 7.5 inches. The other two rings are field installed where one V-Strap overlaps the other. All materials required for erection of the system are shipped together from our location. An installation sled can be purchased with the system to ease installation for large bay buildings. Wall panels can be installed prior to the installation of the Sky Web II® System.
