  • Bridge Debris Nets - Fall Protection Netting Systems Installation Services and Rentals
    For many of these projects a cantilever netting system is used with horizontal outrigger poles or brackets The netting is stretched between the outrigger poles or brackets and also underneath the bridge This system catches both debris that drops straight down as well as anything that is wind blown over the edge When A Bridge Is Over A River Or Stream The netting prevents wood chips paint chips dislodged iron rivets and other objects from falling into the water and contaminating the environment Generally any railroad bridge over water that is being updated will require debris nets to be used if railroad ties are being replaced This is to prevent creosote soaked railroad ties from polluting the water below When A Bridge Is Over A Road Or Railroad Tracks With Low Clearance The netting is stretched tight beneath it This allows cars trucks trains and other vehicles to pass underneath without damaging the netting system Given the age and condition of many bridges in this country a chunk of concrete or other object may fall before there is any firm plan to repair or replace the structure In these situations netting is often installed as a second skin around the bridge to hold the entire structure in place for a few years while plans a and budget for a permanent solution can be prepared Debris Containment Extends To Personnel Safety Where needed personnel fall protection nets can be combined with a liner to offer both containment of falling objects and an OSHA compliant fall protection system Using this solution avoids the need for each worker at risk of falling to be tied off to a qualified anchorage This leads to greater freedom of movement and increased productivity Netting Solutions That Meet Every Need For any of the above needs FallProof will provide a full turnkey package including design engineering fabrication installation and training We also offer less inclusive options including either providing nets only for your crew to install or providing a trainer to work with your crew to ensure that the system is properly installed Below are examples of a few projects we have completed FallProof provides debris and personnel netting systems for bridges throughout the United States from major thoroughfares serving tens of thousands of motorists on a daily basis to historic structures In some applications such as the one pictured our services included installation of a fall protection system for construction and demolition crews who wanted to safeguard workers during the rehabilitation In many cases on these rehabilitation projects both fall protection AND debris are very real concerns especially when it or its structural components might contain lead or arsenic such as the covered bridge from the late 1800 s pictured here We can install nets with fine mesh layers to prevent even the smallest of nails screws wood particles etc from entering a body of water and causing contamination Even on modern bridges or those that are maintained on a regular basis components break down over

  • Historic Building Fall Protection – Netting System Installation and Debris Retention
    demolition is not an option FallProof experts are experienced in this specialty solution and in these cases the entire area below the buildings cannot be completely blocked to pedestrian access In both of those situations FallProof was engaged to wrap the cornices with retention nets to hold the loose masonry or concrete in place for years while a permanent solution could be planned engineered and funded Pictured here FallProof placed retention netting on the ceiling of the Wellmont Theater in Montclair New Jersey during an extensive renovation Although Structurally Sound Old Buildings Still Need Fall Protection It is not only famous structures that are affected Thousands of unknown buildings built in the late 1800 s and early 1900 s are in need of repair or replacement FallProof has installed retention netting in and on schools and rooftop playgrounds courthouses museums churches theaters municipal buildings smokestacks and other structures that could not be taken out of service until needed repairs were undertaken In general these buildings are structurally sound but have weak points such as ornamental molding that presents a danger to people and objects below Netting allows the functional parts of the building to remain in use while removing the danger caused by the loose nonstructural material FallProof has worked with architecture and engineering firms as well as general contractors specializing in the preservation and restoration of historic buildings to make a workplace safe during the renovation process As one example in 2013 the Maryland Historical Trust started a maintenance project to restore windows in the State House Rotunda in Annapolis Completed in 1779 The Maryland State House was the site of George Washington s resignation as Commander In Chief of the Continental Army and has the distinction of being the largest wooden dome constructed in the United States without nails For the restoration project the original windows had to be completely removed for the first time since the dome was constructed Consistent with work we have done on other historic structures no penetration of the building was allowed To overcome this engineering difficulty FallProof designed and installed custom brackets that remained outside with threaded rod protruding through the windows to secure compression brackets with eye bolts inside the dome Cables were run through the eye bolts to support the safety netting needed to prevent debris from falling onto the Rotunda floor during window removal and re installation Its opacity allowed the dome ceiling to remain visible from the floor below Below are examples of a few more historical building projects we have completed Many older churches in inner city neighborhoods in the Northeast such as this one in downtown Philadelphia are fundamentally sound but have areas with loose plaster or concrete that present a danger to parishioners below Installation of netting creates a protective barrier and gives the congregation additional years to develop the funding needed for a permanent solution When the aging façade on the Passaic County Courthouse in Paterson New Jersey began to break up an emergency
