Fire Retardant 6ply 19mm Commercial Bird Netting: 50m x 10m


This item has an added Flame Retardant (FR treatment as per UL-94, V2), making it an ideal option for installation where flame tolerances have been specified.

A Safety Alert (dated 17/8/18) from Safe Work NSW alerts users to the fire hazards associated with containment netting or equivalent used in the construction industry, and the measures that should be implemented to control the associated risks.

Recently a serious fire developed on a building remediation site when containment netting fixed to multi-storey scaffolding ignited. The fire resulted in the deployment of emergency services and required the evacuation of personnel from the work site and building.

The containment netting involved in the incident was manufactured from polyurethane (PE) with fiberglass re-enforced banding. A fire retardance substance was not included in its manufacture. Whilst fire hazard properties have not been tested, it has been observed that the material is highly flammable.
Haverford therefore has worked closely with the manufacturer to offer this product which contains a Fire Retardant. 

This Quatra brand FR netting is easily identifiable by the single Red “fleck” seen in the product images.
