The objective of this study was aimed to examine how the Manila rope is used to make a guard netting model to increase safety for working at the height in the construction and it is capable of carrying up to 100 kg weight as to the target standard. Manila rope is off-the-shelves in Thailand. With its strength, the Manila rope is ideal to be woven as guard netting. After experimental study, the guard netting was developed and testing performance was conducted. The performance testing included two methods; 1) tension test is to determine the maximum safety load of the rope, using a universal hydraulic testing machine, and 2) on-site actual test; using a developed testing machine. The performance testing showed that the guard netting was capable of carrying more than 100kg safely without damages occurred.
