Free Standing Flatbed Truck Netting

Designed to eliminate fall protection concerns, while maximizing space; our Free Standing Truck Netting Systems are ideal for facilities that have multiple use bays, or where customers do not want to connect directly to the flatbed.
This simplistic design combines safety with functionality, as it can be operated by a single user and provides a soft-catch barrier between personnel and the ground. Our Truck Netting System has been engineered to open or close easily, with no additional setup required for the netting panel. Arms fold out from the fixed columns and butt up against the side of the flatbed. No direct connection. Our truck netting solutions require no training to operate and eliminate the need for the use of harnesses, lifeline systems, or overhead cranes.

Why invest in truck netting?

Falls off of flatbed trucks during loading and unloading operations are on the rise due in part to irregular materials such as steel, pipe, timber, unbalanced loads, and a lack of knowledge regarding fall protection safety within the industry. Our systems are designed to eliminate the number of serious accidents whereby personnel is either fatally injured or suffer a significant injury from a fall. Helping you to ensure the safety of your employees.

Pivoting Free Standing Truck Netting System

The Pivoting Free Standing Truck Netting System utilizes columns designed to mount directly to your facility’s floor and provides a “soft catch” for personnel who may fall during loading/unloading of materials. The system is built with a compression arm that can pivot to rest directly against your flatbed truck. This system has been engineered to open or close quickly and easily, with no additional setup required for the netting panel. The system is the perfect permanent safety solution to mitigate the risk and cost of serious workplace injuries that could be incurred if a worker falls from a truck.

Our team can design a system for almost any trucking bay, with custom size configurations to ensure we meet the safety needs of your equipment.
