GUARANTEE
of quality

The IRC quality guarantee offers its customers the highest quality offer in the sector in both safety nets and safety ropes. Our safety products are guaranteed by the European Standard EN-1263-1.

Type S

Type S

Safety net with border rope for horizontal use, made of high tenacity knotless polypropylene or knoted nylon/polyamide and with double anti-UV treatment.

Our fall safety nets are available in a wide variety of colours and mesh sizes to suit all specific needs.

Safety net mesh sizes start at a 45mm and go all the way up to 100mm.

The standart sizes don’t always fit the actual area of your building site which needs to be secured. Therefore, in these cases, IRC will manufacture a custom-made Type S safety net, which will be tailored exactly to your specifications and needs. Product available according to EN 1263-1.

In addition, if requested by the customer, fire retardant nets are available according to UNE 23.727-90 (M.1).

For further information, please contact our sales department.

Type U nets

Type U nets

IRC offers a large number of guardrail nets in standard sizes for scaffolding structures acording to EN 1263-1. If you can’t find the right size among them, we’ll gladly produce a custom-made guardrail net for you.

Safety nets type U are mounted on roof safety scaffolds or standard facade scaffolding , which is why they are often called “scaffolding nets”.

U-type nets can be manufactured without straps (or GSV) or with straps every 70 cm according to EN 1263-1, which means that the mesh size must not exceed 100 mm and the energy absorption when new must be at least 4.14 kJ.

Fire-retardant nets according to UNE 23.727-90 (M.1) are available on request.

Type T safety net

Type T safety net

The System T net, which consists of a safety net for horizontal use, has been tested and meets the requirements of EN 1263-1. It therefore stops objects weighing up to 100 kg that can fall from a height of 7 m. Since the purpose of these nets is to prevent workers or materials from falling from an open edge. IRC produce 3 standard models:

  • Model 1 is designed to catch objects and debris that may fall from a certain height.
  • Model 2 is designed to arrest the fall of workers and pedestrians who may walk across the site.
  • Model 3 has been designed to extend the catch width of the standard tray, increasing the level of containment provided.

*Standar dimensions: 3,1 m x 4 m and 3,1 m x 6 m. We can also manufacture these nets in the measurements required by the customer.

Type V safety net

Type V safety net

Safety Net with border rope attached to a gallow type system for stop the fall of persons and objects at a maximum allowed height of 6 meters.

They are placed at a maximum distance of 5 m from each other, and offer protection to people working on the construction site by preventing them from falling, as well as falling objects. Although gallows can protect up to a 6m fall, we recommend their use for falls of only one floor (approx.3m).

The standard manufacturing sizes are 5 x 10 meters; however, our quality and manufacturing system allows us to manufacture nets with special sizes according to our customers’ requests.

Fire-retardant nets according to UNE 23.727-90 (M.1) are available on request.

WPN

WPN

WPN is the generic term for working platform nets. These nets are manufactured in accordance with EN 1263-1, are installed by ratchet straps, the straps being used as cross beams forming net grids.

The working height must be 1.5 m or less below the lower edge of the construction. In addition, they are normally constructed from 45mm or 60mm netting material with tensioned straps sewn through the mesh, allowing operators to walk and perform light tasks in complete safety.

IRC is increasingly recognised as a safe and experienced supplier of WPNs, a revolutionary work surface that improves the mobility and safety of your teamwork. And, at the same time, it economises the site by reducing money and time spent by eliminating lifts and scaffolding.

Underformwork nets

Underformwork nets

In order to provide a safe workplace during the execution of the formwork process or during the assembly of the formwork system, IRC manufactures, in accordance with the Spanish Standard 81652:2013, under formwork nets. This standard complies with the following standards: a mass of 500 mm of diameter and 100 kg of weight from 2,5 m high falling. There are two kinds of nets within this type of nets:

  • Class A – Non-reusable nets. These are single-use safety nets for under slabs.
  • Class B – Reusable nets. These are nets installed with steel anchoring elements directly to the prop. For installation in frame formwork, IRC supplies different sizes depending on the spacing between props on site.

If requested by the client, we have nets with fire retardant effect according to UNE 23.727-90 (M.1). For further information, please contact our sales department.

Skylights net system

Skylights net system

Net according to EN 1263-1 Type S with tensioning belt according to EN 795-B for the protection of skylight openings. With this safety system, the worker is safe from falls from a certain height, as the additional reinforcement of the tensioning belt allows the operator to find an anchorage point. It is also possible to choose a net without a tensioning belt, to be installed directly under the skylight.

Fire-retardant nets according to UNE 23.727-90 (M.1) are available on request. For further information, please contact our sales department

 

Facade protection nets

Facade protection nets

Old buildings often have structural problems, which can cause problems for both the owner and the municipality to which they belong. Crumbling concrete or a deteriorating cornice on any structure is an insurance liability. Therefore, facade containment nets provide long or short term security and are often the best way to address security problems pending a permanent solution.

We have a long variety of products developed for historic sites and municipal buildings that need a safety netting system in place that is not apparent to the public. Making these innovative products nearly invisible is our specialty. In addition, they are custom designed and manufactured for a perfect fit.

Bridges and civil building sites

Bridges and civil building sites

A structure under construction or repair can lead to the appearance of debris and other rubble typical of a construction site.

For this reason, and with the aim of protecting workers and pedestrians, IRC offers a solution for the containment of debris. These nets are ideal for the construction of bridges and public infrastructures as they prevent all types of materials from falling. From small pieces to large and heavy objects that can cause serious damage.

Safety ropes

Ropes are the most reliable complement to the nets, being essential for the binding and joining processes that ensure the correct installation of the nets in the different safety systems. For this reason, at IRC we have an extensive catalogue of safety ropes. In it you can find G rope (20 Kn), O rope (7,5 Kn), Z rope (15 Kn) or M rope (30 Kn) among others.

In addition, we also offer accessories such as hooks, ratchets, etc.
