'A-Safer' place to be
12 December 2012
Plastic barrier specialists, A-Safe, has revolutionised warehouse and production sites around the world with its unique plastic barrier system, becoming the preferred supplier to leading international companies such as Coca-Cola. Kimberly-Clark and Toyota.
The systems provide the strength and durability of steel, with the flexibility, and reduced maintenance of plastic and therefore A-Safe barriers are ideal for applications such as door protectors, height restrictors and ground level traffic barriers to help protect warehouse assets during loading and unloading. HSE figures show that over the past two years there have been 3,827 major injuries to workers as a result of workplace transport accidents, with 117 workers fatally injured over the past two years as a result.
Miguel Perez, Safety Environmental Manager at Kimberly Clark's modern plant in Spain said: â€œApart from being simple and easy to install, A-Safe barriers provide the highest standards of safety, with excellent durability and they have a smart, attractive appearance. Our workers and management team both really appreciate A-Safe, because they make them feel much safer now.â€
A Safe are the industry leaders in providing pedestrian and vehicle barrier systems using their patented and highly visible plastic systems which are tough, durable and can withstand impacts from factory vehicles of up to 304KN (this is the equivalent of a 3.5 tonne vehicle travelling at 10MPH with a direct head on impact into the barrier. The weight or speed of the vehicle can dramatically increase as the impact angle changes). All barriers have been certified BS6180 and BS6399.
