Securing Safety: The Vital Role of Dropped Object Nets
In the realm of Drops prevention, one tool stands out as a lifesaver – dropped object nets.
Drops incidents can occur when equipment and fixtures, such as lights and CCTV cameras, come loose and fall due to corrosion, impact, or vibration. The consequences can be severe, as these objects can plummet from considerable heights, posing grave risks to personnel, equipment, and structures below.
Dropped object nets are specifically designed to wrap securely around fixtures, providing an essential safety measure. These nets come in various sizes and shapes, tailored to fit different fixtures precisely, ensuring a snug and effective fit to prevent any chances of loose objects.
The Diversity of Dropped Object Nets in Overhead Fixtures
Industries such as oil and gas, mining, and power generation employ a diverse range of overhead fixtures with varying shapes and sizes. From floodlights, linear lights, and strip lights to offshore-specific fixtures like beacons and strobes, each demands specific safety securing solutions. CCTV cameras and loudspeakers, commonly used in these industries, require dedicated dropped object nets to ensure their stability and safety.
The Criticality of Well-Fitted Dropped Object Nets
Dropped object nets made of stainless steel are the gold standard for their exceptional strength. Elasticity, however, is not desirable in these nets, as they must withstand impact without losing integrity. Loose-fitting nets can lead to objects gaining momentum before impact, placing immense strain on the net’s wires and attachment points. Moreover, loose nets may attract nesting seabirds or debris, introducing additional hazards that compromise safety.
Custom Solutions for Safety
Addressing the specific challenges of designing dropped object nets for diverse fixtures demands expertise and precision. For instance, in the case of CCTV cameras, specialized mounting brackets are essential to prevent snags and ensure an unobstructed view. Companies like Dropsafe are adept at crafting tailored solutions for various fixtures, ensuring operators can procure the ideal dropped object nets for their facilities.
A Successful Case Study: Bespoke Dropped Object Nets for Formosa 1 Offshore Wind Farm
Formosa 1 Offshore Wind Farm in Taiwan faced unique Drops risks due to extreme weather conditions, including typhoons and storms. To proactively mitigate these risks, Dropsafe collaborated with Formosa Offshore Wind (FOW) to design and install bespoke Dropped Object Net systems for each turbine. These custom nets, manufactured from SUS 316 Japanese stainless steel, were typhoon-proof, effectively reducing Drops risks. The success of this project set a high standard for Drops prevention in offshore wind farms worldwide, establishing FOW as a leader in health and safety.
