Nets to help store, secure, and cover goods or cargo for a range of transport methods.
Nets are an ideal way to store or help to secure items in vehicles and for other modes of transport.
We have a wide range of nets which are suitable for use in cars, vans, trailers, mobile homes, campervans, pick-up trucks, 4x4s, lorries, emergency vehicles, motorcycles, boats, airplanes, trains, coaches, and in many other settings.
The nets can be used in a variety of applications, including:
- As luggage restraining nets
- Creating storage space behind seats, on the sides of doors, in the footwell or as roof lining nets
- On commercial vehicles as a load restraining net or cover
- On shelves to keep items in place when the vehicle is in transit
Nets are available in various diameters and mesh sizes, and can be elasticated or non-elasticated depending on the intended use. When used appropriately, nets can help to keep your items contained whilst in transit, and can help meet the requirements of the Road Traffic Act 1991.
Securing loads for road transport is a legal requirement in the UK as detailed in guidance from the Department for Transport (DfT), the European Commission (EC) code of practice, and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
Drivers have a duty under the provisions introduced into the Road Traffic Act 1988 by the Road Traffic Act 1991 to secure all loads on their vehicles and to avoid physical injury and damage to people and property during transport operations.
As advised in the Department of Transport Code of Practice document on Safety of Loads on Vehicles (3rd Edition, 2002), it is a legal requirement that all loads carried on vehicles are secured, no matter the length of the journey. This protects people involved in loading, unloading and driving the vehicle, as well as other road users and pedestrians, as well as the vehicle and the load itself.
Generally, the nets are made from polypropylene, polyethylene, or nylon. Kevlar and silver nets are available on request subject to a minimum order quantity.The nets can also be made to your exact specifications, contact us for further information.
