BayNets Safety Systems, an MBA Group Co., custom designs safety netting to cover open pits and lower bays. The systems are made of petroleum-resistant nylon netting, installed with aircraft cable and hardware.
The company said a BayNets system can be opened or closed in about a minute while conventional post and chain systems could take as much as 10 minutes to set up or take down.
BayNets said savings from this time difference will pay for the system in a short amount of time.
The netting has a load factor of 6,000 pounds that protects a shop tech working in a pit from falling objects. The open netting allows air to circulate freely providing more comfortable working conditions in the pit.
