The whole A-Safe product range is tested, but particularly the barriers that segregate and protect pedestrians from vehicles within the working environment.

The testing is done under rigorous conditions with results calibrated.

Certificated results can be simulated in the worst case scenario of a 90 degree impact. There are only two official standards for safety barriers and both refer to the specification for car parks: BS 6399-1 and BS6180. All A-Safe barriers including its own 'armco' barrier have passed these.

In the A-Safe factory there are two impact calibration rigs; one, a dynamic pendulum impact simulator and one a static constant force simulator. The method is to erect barriers and, under controlled safety conditions, bash them with a forklift.
