Dropsafe nets for overhead fixtures

The Dropsafe Net is the most effective solution to securely enclose and tether overhead fixtures – i.e. speakers, lights, sirens and other equipment hanging overhead to prevent them from free-falling.

Overhead fixtures can become loose or dislodged over time. This represents a significant drop risk – especially in structures which are exposed to extreme weather conditions, such as heavy wind, heat, heavy moisture or indeed water. 

Many of these fixtures are overlooked during maintenance and inspection. This might lead to extreme corrosion resulting in sudden free-fall of these objects. Our high quality drop safe net is the ultimate solution to avoid this critical issue. 

Accordingly, the new high-quality dropsafe nets are tested and certified to over 5x the Safe Working Load. With more than 100 sizes and installations toggles to ensure a good fit. The dropped object nets are all made from SUS 316 stainless steel.

  • Instant safety solution 
  • Fast and easy installation without tools required

Reducing accidents – statistics

Accidents caused by dropped objects falling from heights are unfortunately common in many industries. 

These accidents can lead to serious injuries or fatalities, both for workers and bystanders. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (OSHA) there are more than 42,400 “struck by falling object” recordable incidents each year in the United States alone. 

Implementing safety measures is therefore extremely important to prevent accidents caused by dropped objects and protect the safety and well-being of workers and bystanders. If a company fails to provide adequate safety measures in high-risk environments, it can result in serious consequences, including:

  • Injuries or fatalities
  • Occupational safety violations 
  • Reputation damage 
  • Legal liability
  • Financial liability
