Industrial Cargo Nets - Transportation Cargo Net
Industrial cargo netting and cargo nets are very important, both for the safety of the cargo being transported and for the safety of other road users. By using proper cargo netting, road accidents and incidents can be prevented. The industrial cargo nets are durable and tough and can be custom designed to suite any of your cargo transportation requirements. We can manufacture a custom cargo tarp and net.
Cargo nets also protect your tarpaulin against wind flap and wear and tear.
Cargo nets are used by the road transport and logistics industry, and in the shipping industry, to secure loads to prevent them from shifting during transport, as well as to deter theft.
In shipping, cargo lift nets are used to load and unload cargo. The net is spread out by stevedores, who load the goods onto it. They then attach the cinches to a crane hook. Lifting the hook draws the corners of the net around the cargo. This results in a balanced and secure load which can be safely hoisted. Goods are transferred from one place to another in the construction industry using cargo nets. When used to transfer cargo by helicopter, they are referred to as "underslung" cargo nets. We have cargo nets for sale.
Also used on bakkies or open vehicles to secure loads being transported and as a safety feature on mines throughout Africa.
As part of obstacle courses, cargo nets are used as flexible ladders.
Although still used in playgrounds around the world, cargo nets have been subject to criticism due to the hazard of strangulation. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a notice expressing concern that a child's head can become trapped if the openings are of a particular size.
Marine rescue and ship embarkation
In maritime situations, cargo nets can be slung over the side of a ship to allow passengers stranded in the water to climb aboard to safety. Cargo nets can also be used to transfer troops from a ship to landing craft.
Especially on ships, cargo nets are used as physical barriers, to prevent individuals from falling through openings or overboard into the sea. Also used in the mining industry for protection of falling rocks and debris.
Used a ladders in tailing dams to assist in getting out of the dam should someone fall into these dams.
