SCHROTH offers this high quality Safety Net for the left and right side of the driver. In an impact the nets are there to contain your head and body to the seat. Nets are now recommended or required (check your rulebook) on both sides of the driver. The traditional window net has not been sufficient enough at containing the driver in an impact. The Schroth safety nets attach to the cage of your race car, as close to the seat as possible. Made of polyester, these nets will last longer than competitor's nylon nets since polyester is not as susceptible to UV degradation over time.

We view Side Nets (also called "Cage Nets") as a mandatory piece of safety equipment. In an impact, the body moves forward 6-8 inches as the harnesses stretch to decelerate the body. This is normal and quite necessary to prevent injury. If you are in an offset impact (an impact that is not straight on) there are high lateral forces that will move you side to side. Without safety nets on both sides your head and body can leave the protection of the seat shell. Side nets prevent this by guiding your head and shoulders back into the safety of the seat shell and without affecting your sightlines during driving.

Please note, this used to be an SFI rated product, but is now FIA.

  • The nets are tested with a DYNAMIC load so it more accurately represents the real world.
  • Read carefully the section about installing the net in the car. The FIA requires that 2 vertical sections are in contact with the seat back to provide support. Schroth has added additional vertical sections to the FIA net so the 2 nets are not the same. Also make note of the angles involved in the installation.
  • The FIA recommends that a net be installed on either side of the seat for driver restraint, the FIA does not view the window net as adequate for restraining the driver, they would like to see two interior nets whenever possible. Professional sports and touring car series mandate two interior nets as well as a window net.
  • The FIA requires that the net be mounted with the horizontal sections of webbing on the inside by the driver so the drivers helmet has a smooth surface to slide down in an accident. On Schroth nets this can be accomplished on both sides just be flipping the net over.
  • The FIA requires that the quick release button be capable of being released under load which is the way Schroth developed the new style quick-release. Ratchet straps were proven to not hold up to the dynamic load and were slow to release in an emergency. The new quick-release is lighter and safer than previous versions.
