LIGHTWEIGHT ENCLOSURE FABRIC
Our plastic web mesh range is manufactured to the highest quality. Fortress Fencing's fire retardant plastic web netting is based on a shade cloth construction with reinforced ridges to give it extra stability without the weight of wire chain link fence mesh.
No wire also means reduced risk of cuts and lacerations, and significantly less weight.
This fire retardant containment mesh is a unique design and patented fire retardant containment system used to enclose scaffolding from the inside. It is used to prevent falling objects and provide safety for workers using the scaffold at height. This product has been extensively tested against similar products on the market and has shown to be stronger and lighter.
As opposed to the original Gen 1 product which has a flammability index of 8, this new and improved FRC mesh Gen 2 has a significant decrease with a flammability index of 2. Flammability index is measured on a scale of 0 to 100 with 0 being the least hazardous. Therefore this product's flammability index of 2 gives it an excellent flame resistance.
INCREASES PEDESTRIAN SAFETY
Construction netting is an effective way to enclose your site. Used to create a wind barrier and control dust on construction projects, it reduces environmental impact on surrounding areas by containing debris within the confines of the site. Additionally, plastic web mesh can increase pedestrian and worker safety by protecting tools and equipment from falling.
