Air and Air/Surface (Platform) Cargo Pallet Nets AS1131C

This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) provides dimensional, structural and environmental requirements for pallet nets to be used in conjunction with 2.44 m (8 ft) wide pallets described in AS1130. The pallet/net combination are used in freighter versions of certificated aircraft equipped to provide restraint to pallets tested to the requirements of NAS 3610 Class II restraint system. The minimum essential criteria are identified by use of the key word "shall". Recommended criteria are identified by use of the key word "should", and while not mandatory, are considered to be primary importance in providing serviceable, economical, and practical air transport pallet nets. Deviation from recommended criteria should occur only after careful consideration, extensive testing, and thorough service evaluation have shown alternate methods to be satisfactory.
This document establishes five sizes of basic pallet nets as follows:
  1. a
    Size F (10 ft) (NAS 3610-2F1N): To restrain a 2.44 mm × 2.99 m × 3 m (96 in × 117.75 in × 118 in) high (max) load
  2. b
    Size R (16 ft) (NAS 3610-2R1N): To restrain a 2.44 m × 4.98 m × 3 m (96 in × 196 in × 118 in) high (max) load
  3. c
    Size G (20 ft) (NAS 3610-2G1N): To restrain a 2.44 m × 6.06 m × 3 m (96 in × 238.5 in × 118 in) high (max) load
  4. d
    Size H (30 ft) (NAS 3610-2H1N): To restrain a 2.44 m × 9.12 m × 3 m (96 in × 359.25 in × 118 in) high (max) load
  5. e
    Size J (40 ft) (NAS 3610-2J1N): To restrain a 2.44 m × 12.19 m × 3 m (96 in × 480 in × 118 in) high (max) load
