The installation of a net can be the deciding factor between whether the net does it’s job or whether it’s just for decoration on a building site. A net that has not been installed properly will not do it’s job properly, and possibly at all, as is just as good as if it were not there.

As you can see in these images, there are loose bits of netting left hanging around, the nets have not been joined together properly and they are not properly fixed to the framing. These nets would do little in the case of a fall. This is why it is important to have a professional you trust install all of your safety netting, as your life could really depend on it!
