Safety net

We want to go to the top: on lookouts and monuments. We want unobstructed views: at the stadium or from the roof terrace. We want dense housing without restricting our freedom. Architects and builders must meet safety standards, but don't want to compromise on the beauty of their designs. Cultural heritage organizations have high demands to protect the appearance of historic buildings.


With Webnet, Jakob Rope Systems has the solution to these diverse requirements for modern safety systems. It is a suitable safety net for lookouts, stadiums and stairs that 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 spectrum. Its use as horizontal and vertical fall protection is approved by the German Institute for Structural Engineering (DIBt). And because it is made of high-quality stainless steel, it is durable and resistant to corrosion with minimal maintenance costs.


Classic applications of Webnet as a safety net include fences and barriers, balcony railings, vertical safety nets on viewing platforms and horizontal fall protection around helipads.

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

Vertical safety net

Vertical safety nets out of Webnet are often used as fall prevention or additional protection. They provide reliable security for balconies, galleries or outdoor terraces with minimal impact on visibility. The elegance of the stainless steel mesh integrates extremely well with many architectural styles. Color options and the many variants of wire diameters make the mesh fully adaptable to the needs of the project.

Horizontal safety net

Horizontal safety nets with Webnet provide effective and beautiful protection against falls. The high transparency of the mesh makes it almost translucent and allows natural light to shine through.

Horizontal safety net

Webnet is an affordable and effective solution for large-scale protection against falling objects. Up to six meters wide and eight meters high, no additional support ropes are required, making the structures elegant in appearance. Thanks to its high translucency, Webnet allows enough sunlight to pass through and is almost invisible. This effect can be increased by the choice of the appropriate cable dimension, the use of the sleeveless variant and a spectral coloring.

Security for monuments

On monuments with large crowds, safety without compromising visibility is essential. Webnet meets the many demands made on a safety net for monuments: it is low maintenance, provides unobstructed views and does not have a negative visual impact on the historic buildings.

Helipad safety net

Helicopter landing pads require a strong and reliable safety net as high winds can occur during take-offs and landings. Jakob Rope Systems has installed numerous helipads with surrounding safety nets that prevent falls and require little maintenance.
