So far, in Indian Industry, the roof workers were left to the mercy of God if they worked without any system or else they used rooftop safety systems while working on Asbestos Cement (A.C.) sheet roofs. These sheets are fragile and visually the weak sheets cannot be differentiated from the good ones. Stepping directly on these sheets has always been a call of a fatal accident. The height from which the worker falls, the object on which he falls prior to hitting the ground are some of the various factors which makes these accidents more dangerous and highly fatal. This accounts for thousands of rooftop accidents every year; most of these are fatal ones.
Use of rooftop safety system alone, limits the speed of work and this was one of the main causes of neglecting the system while actually working on rooftop. The system would be observed, laid in a corner, unused, provided by the employer – the industry awarding the contract of rooftop jobs.
With a definite increased element of safety awareness in Indian Industry on introduction of ratings like ISO etc., the industry would insist on tying of a net at the truss level under the roof even when the working on floor below is in progress. These nets are BULKY and quite CUMBERSOME. Tying them at the truss level is a time consuming, laborious & nightmarish job. The net has to be strong enough because of the momentum, to hold the falling workers from a height. THE FACTOR OF GRAVITY COMES INTO PLAY. Thus, this safer working procedure further limits the speed of the work on rooftop and thus the productivity or the output of work reduces to 10 – 15%. This creates reluctance and then deliberate negligence sets in both, on the part of the contractor and on the part of the employer who employs him as well.
This gave rise to invent some system to SPEED UP THE WORK WITHOUT COMPROMISING ON SAFETY while working on rooftops.
The system “Fabricare KatNet System” consists of two essential parts :
The accessories, “NYLOFIXERS” are specially developed & made from flat nylon straps, eyelets, fixing bolt and special clamps.
Rooftop safety system, in combination, is EASILY used without any obstruction, comfortably. Nets are fixed to roof with suitable “ENDFIXERS”. The sides of the net are fixed at several points. Two or more nets are placed side by side as per the requirement of that particular job on rooftop. These nets are fixed to each other using “MIDFIXERS”. The rooftop safety system can also be clamped over the nets, if required.
If rooftop safety system is earlier already adequately purchased, which is in use, suitable quantity of only “Fabricare KatNet” nets can be procured.
Advantages of combination
Try out this system and provide the roof worker an IDEAL & SAFE work place to work on and get reed of the nagging and ever bothersome problem of SAFE roof work.
