A-SAFE Pedestrian Barriers remain one of the most popular and sought-after products in the range.
They offer essential safe segregation of personnel and vehicles by clearly defining walkways from areas of vehicle activity.
Personnel are prevented from straying into dangerous areas by a physical barrier and vehicles are given clear, highly visible guide routes so that crossovers with pedestrian areas are minimised.
The barriers flex on impact so will withstand low level impacts from forklifts or other factory vehicles and because the force is absorbed and dissipated throughout the barrier, rather than sent to the floor - as would be the case with traditional steel barriers - the floor too is protected and companies are not left with costly repair bills.
The modular design of the barriers mean they can be individually replaced without huge upheaval and disruption, and Slide or Swing Gates can be easily incorporated into the installation.
The barriers also offer hygienic advantages by being ‘wipe-clean’, non-toxic and chemically resistant, so are extremely popular within the food industry.
