HuckTek can design, manufacture, supply and install a variety of different industrial netting including
Factory Pallet Rack Netting
Protection to personnel from pallets and boxes becoming dislodged from racking during placement or removal is essential, particularly in high bay racking systems. Huck Tek installs protection net systems which prevent material falls, protecting personnel and expensive materials from damage.
Helipad netting helps prevent personnel from falling if they inadvertently step over the edge of the landing pad when disorientated by the helicopter rotor blast.
On some buildings polymer netting is used, supported in a framework to provide no-step protection at the raised helipad edge. As an alternative to polymer netting, pad overhangs may be protected in the same manner with galvanized or stainless steel netting such as Huck “Dralo” or Huck-Torimex “X-Tor”. Metal nets may lack the energy absorption in comparison to polymer netting, but they provide a stronger solution offering reduced maintenance and increased longevity.
Netting the undersides and sides of conveyor systems prevents loss of materials onto personnel below by catching materials from sliding off the sides. Huck Tek specialises in netting overhead conveyors, sharp turns in transport conveyors and roller docking bays.
In mountainous areas, rail / road cuttings and on exposed quarry faces rock fall is always a potential hazard as faces erode under the natural action of the weather and the environment. Using specialist access teams or powered access equipment in suitable areas, Huck Tek has carried out numerous activities involving rock face dentition, rock bolting and the installation of rock fall protection nets and rock fall fencing systems of all types. Periodic inspection, maintenance and repair of protected areas are also undertaken.
Tanks and Silos
Open Tanks and Silos are a constant attraction for the unauthorised public and operatives alike. Falling in is a permanent hazard unless the access areas are netted.
Nets can be polypropylene or steel with steel netting offering the more robust low maintenance solution particularly if intruders are likely to try walking on the
netting or damaging it with heat or sharp implements. Huck Tek provides netted systems or nets for self installation complete with suitable fixings and advice.
Netting of lagoons, carrying water run-off from motorways and hardstandings have been carried out for a number of years. This type of netting used to deter nesting and wading birds, is particularly necessary in the vicinity of airport runways where birds can present a threat to aircraft during take-off and landing. Huck Tek have installed a variety of netting systems at key UK airports such as Heathrow’s T5, Newcastle International and the new Robin Hood Airport at Doncaster.
