Safety nets

Safety - a basic human need that plays a key role in every building, new or old. Jakob Rope Systems provides security solutions for any case.

We want to go on top: on lookouts and monuments. We want a free view: in the stadium or from the roof terrace. We want high-density housing without limiting our freedom. Architects and builders have to meet security standards, but do no want to compromise on the beauty of their designs. Heritage organisations have high demands to protect the appearance of historical buildings.

With the WebnetJakob Rope Systems has the solution for these manifold requirements to modern safety systems. It is a suitable safety net for lookouts, in stadiums and staircases which is functional, reliable and beautiful without dominating the appearance. The stainless steel mesh adapts to any geometry and can be painted in any color of the RAL spectre. Its use as a horizontal and vertical fall protection is approved by the German Institute of Structural Engineering (DIBt). And since it is made out of high grade stainless steel, it is durable and resistant to corrosion at minimal maintenance costs.

Fall preventions

On observation platforms or balconies: safety is always the priority. But what would these places be without the great views that can be had from here? For these cases, our Webnet provides the perfect combination of safety with an unobstructed view. The wire net comes in many varieties that provide a tailor-made and reliable safety solution: with or without sleeves, in different cable diametres and mesh apertures and in any colour of the RAL colour spectre. 

Fences and barriers

Fences and safety nets are an obvious application of our Webnet. The wire mesh beats conventional trellis systems especially in regard to elegance and robustness. The AISI 316 stainless steel withstands vandalism and weather extremes resulting in lower maintenance costs. By chosing the appropriate mesh aperture and cable strength, the net becomes less climbable and a safe protection fence. Finally, Webnet’s high translucency guarantees an unobtrusive and discrete appearance at maximum safety.


As a horizontal fall prevention, Webnet is being used everywhere, where the highest demands are made on reliability, durability and robustness. The mesh aperture and capacity of the net can be adapted to any use case by selecting the cable diameter.

Certified safety

During development and production, the Webnet is constantly tested according to the highest industry standards. The AISI 316 stainless steel is extremely strong and requires minimal maintenance. The German Institute for Structural Engineering (DIBt) has authorised the use of Webnet as a horizontal and vertical fall protection.
