Nets4You was approached to develop a bespoke solution to a problem faced by one of the University of Oxford’s libraries. The open railing on the first floor provided an ideal opportunity for small items to potentially fall down to the floor area below.
The request was for a minimal but effective solution to provide a safety measure to stop objects rolling off the first floor and onto the open area below the railing. It was essential that the solution blended in and did not detract from the architectural features of the library.
We designed and made a custom frame for an elasticated net to fit the long-span panel spaces under the railing. This was a challenging given the span of the area to be covered, but we developed a solution that our client was pleased with.
These are photos from the client showing the nets in use, and they feel the nets have achieved the aim of providing a safety barrier whilst being unobtrusive.
