Protect Warehouse Personnel and Reduce Product Damage
Safety netting systems are used in retail and distribution facilities to protect stock from falling and injuring workers or customers below. Safety netting offers a vertical or horizontal barrier for flue spaces or single runs of pallet rack where product is stored. Typically, a custom solution is designed for accurate fit within the pallet rack.
There are many warehouse uses for safety netting that attaches directly to the racking with the use of zip ties, brackets, and eye bolts and carabiners. Installation is easy and adaptable brackets can be manufactured for custom applications. Many retail applications require safety netting at upper levels in aisles in order to protect customers from poorly placed pallets of loose items.
Safety netting is not just used behind the pallet rack, but can also be designed for horizontal applications which include netting under pallet flow lanes in pick modules and under carton flow systems to catch boxes.
Safety netting has a rope border for reinforcement and a very high tensile strength that will stop product and help prevent injuries that can occur in walkways, work areas, and pallet rack end caps. Installed netting also protects inventory and reduces costly work place clean-up from falling product.
Pallet rack storage safety netting contains product and forms a barrier for falling items. Because of the see-through design, safety netting lets warehouse workers find fallen product and get it back into inventory.
The dimensional stability and high-tensile strength of netting keeps product in place. Custom netting brackets and retainers designed by UNARCO Engineering ship with your pallet rack order and attach easily and safely to the pallet rack.
Safety netting can be trimmed and manipulated onsite to fit around sprinkler heads and maintain a safer flue space for fire safety. It is smart planning to keep product inside of the pallet rack bay and out of the zones where water needs to flow in the event of a fire.
Varied grid sizes will stop overflowing pallets and keep individual items isolated within the netting. Custom designs and attachments for hard-to-capture items are available upon request. Whether you chose a woven or plastic safety netting or mesh is up to you, but protecting your product and workers needs to be top of the mind to every Warehouse Manager and Distribution Center Safety Director.
Safety Netting in Pallet Racks is a necessary item to protect everyone in the warehouse: employees, customers, and visitors

The benefits of safety netting are full-time protection from falling items. Forklift traffic and constantly moving pallets can break bundles or skids of product and cause falling items. Protect pickers from stray merchandise that falls from above and keep inventory safe. Keep items in the pallet rack, where they belong, so they don't harm employees or fall and damage costly equipment and conveyors.
