I am curious if the window net ever goes out of date like the seat harness. I was looking for a new one anyway, but the question of age of my current one came up in the conversation.

Thanks,

Window nets should be checked during your annual inspection. Frayed nets, or nets that show deterioration, should be replaced.
They are supposed to have an SFI spec. 27.1 label, but are not required to have a date.

My window net did not pass NASA inspection because its date label couldn't be read. It did pass SCCA though.

SFI states recert period is 2 years-along with (39.1/2) seats and (37.1) rollcage nets. They also state (S3.2A/10+) driver suits are good for 5 years.

I would suggest "on condition." That seems to work for my underwear and seatbelts in all FAA registered aircraft.

Sun exposure seems to have the greatest detrimental effect on my netting and padding. I'm sure the belts take a beating from the sun too. I try to keep them clean and store the car in a garage while not at the track.

I didn't know it was an FAA requirement but never the less...I make it a point to change my underwear "on condition" rather than waiting 2 years too. [Smile]
