Important points to remember:
- What is the reaction of your insurance company and how will the law deal with any claim?
- Will the law recognise that there is no Australian standard for PFS nets? And will the law take the view that you should have used an international standard?
- Or will your insurance company and the law recognise that you took due care in designing a net and yet, while it did not strictly comply with a standard (as there is no appropriate Australian Standard); it was strong enough to take the applied load.
There are no clear answers to these questions and you must make a considered judgement on the selection of materials.
