Wall Mounted Truck Netting Systems (Pit Netting)

Wall mounted flatbed truck netting system rendering
The Wall Mounted Truck Netting System, also known as our “Fill in the Gap System,” protects small gaps between the shop floor and trailer bed in recessed bay applications where a post and net system is not suitable. The nets are attached to the facility wall by cable or a flat bar/pad eye setup. The net then hangs from the attachment hardware and is attached to the trailer with stake pockets when a flatbed is in place. Recessed bay applications can be particularly dangerous to workers, and our system ensures that all facility areas are protected.

Netting Safety and Regulations in Canada

Our netting panels are treated to meet NFPA 701 standards for fire-retardancy and have been tested and rated in accordance with ANSI A10.11 and OSHA safety standards. This includes the complete system with all of the hardware installed onto a racking system and tests made to simulate a real-case product falls.

To ensure compliance with regulations, we advise following safety net installation standards. This includes obtaining certification from qualified installers or engineers, conducting testing procedures, maintaining thorough records, and providing worker training.

A comprehensive fall protection plan must consider work nature, site or facility conditions, load capacity, and manufacturer specifications. Proper installation, maintenance, and regular inspection are critical for compliance and effectiveness.

Accumulated debris can compromise the functionality of safety nets and create hazards. Work operations should pause promptly to remove debris or any fallen objects to maintain optimal net performance.

Overhead cranes. Do they load from the side, the end or both? If from the side, how high can the posts be without interfering with the loading process?

Connection to the trailer – the standard system requires attachment directly to the trailer while the pivot system does not.
