This document establishes dimensional, structural, and environmental requirement for tow types of interline pallet nets. Type II covers NAS 3610 code sizes and Type III covers other sizes not currently included in NAS 3610.
The purpose of this document is to establish minimum requirements for nets used to secure cargo on aircraft pallets meeting the requirements of AS1491.
The minimum essential criteria are identified by the use of the key word "shall". Recommended criteria are identified by the use of the key word "should" and, while not mandatory, are considered to be of primary importance in providing serviceable, economical, and practical air transport pallet nets. Deviation from the recommended criteria should occur only after careful consideration, extensive testing, and thorough service evaluation have shown alternate methods to be satisfactory.
