Safety Netting in Epsom, South West London and the South East
Scaffolding Company Improving Scaffolding Safety

McQ Scaffolding Ltd specialises in safety netting, supplied and fitted for use on commercial projects and construction sites. Netting is our scaffolding company’s primary method of collective fall protection. It is also the preferred form of fall arrest with the Health & Safety Executive. We are one of the very few businesses, locally or regionally, to supply netting to those who work at height on scaffolding.

Located in Croydon, our scaffolding contractors undertake a significant amount of scaffolding and crane hire work in the Epsom and South West London area. However, with a growing reputation for excellence across Greater London and the Home Counties, we also offer services to clients across the wider South East region.

Safety netting protects workforces during construction. It prevents serious injury and lowers fatality rates by offering the following benefits:

  • Netting allows workforces to move freely, unlike other types of personal fall arrest equipment

  • Netting is a collective method of protection that makes work easy and movement safe across entire areas

  • In the event of falls, netting reduces suspension trauma and offers a softer landing than a harness

  • Safety netting reduces the need for complicated rescues. The person who falls can easily climb out of the net

Much like we do with our scaffolding and crane hire services, McQ Scaffolding Ltd tailors its netting installations to the specification of the job.

Our scaffolding company helps to improve safety on projects in Croydon, Epsom, South West London and all surrounding South East areas.

The Purpose of Safety Netting

Netting, referred to in some parts of the trade as debris netting, optimises safety for those who work at height. It is a popular feature widely used in construction. The netting itself consists of a dense polythene plastic. It covers the scaffolding structure to provide protection for the scaffolding itself, for the workers who use it, and for any pedestrians passing underneath it.

Safety netting stops materials, tools and debris from falling and causing injuries or fatalities.

Due to its mesh netting design, and when compared to solid sheeting, netting allows for continual airflow and provides ventilation. It also protects against wind and rain. Our scaffolding contractors use netting to create a safe working environment, one where your own team can carry out their best work without fear of falling.

With an endless number of benefits, it comes as no surprise that the supply of safety is one of the most popular services we offer to clients in Croydon, Epsom and South West London.

Additional benefits of a safety net include:

  • Offers more safety and flexibility than a traditional harness-and-line system

  • Minimises hazards posed by the release of construction dust during a live project

  • Safety protection for scaffolding systems from wind, rain, theft and vandalism

  • Our scaffolding company creates custom netting to fit any type of structure

  • Protects those working at height from falls and promotes confidence to move around site

  • Stops rubble and debris, and tools, from falling and causing harm or damage to people and property

Safety Netting | BS EN 1263 Standards

We can supply and fit netting with other scaffolding products, or as a standalone service, anywhere in Croydon, Epsom, South West London or the South East region. Our scaffolding contractors have the experience and training required to comply with current BS EN 1263 legislation.

As you would expect from a reputable scaffolding company like McQ, we inspect and test safety netting both before and after installation. Our personnel can perform net repairs onsite, if needed, to minimise downtimes.
