Safety Barriers & Impact Protection
Weaknesses in your storage facility, unsecured obstacles and chaos on traffic routes can all contribute to accidents in the workplace. Watch our video to find out what can happen when safety barriers and impact protection barriers are not used.
But don’t worry; for effective protection you do not need to wrap your staff and equipment in cotton wool. Safety barriers and impact protection systems are the simple and clever way to avoid accidents and damage to equipment in daily operations. The right products for your needs can be found in our online shop.
In our new practical guide, you will find everything you need to know about all aspects of impact protection systems and safety barriers: from the legal regulations to the best product selection for your application.
We have a selection of safety barriers and impact protection solutions that have been developed for the most demanding of industrial, agricultural or laboratory environments. Once installed, they will give your staff the confidence to carry out their role, be it in a warehouse, garage or manufacturing facility, knowing that the management team is taking their safety seriously. When a building is fitted with the correct impact protection, the risk of a collision between vehicles and pedestrians, or forklifts and machinery, can be markedly reduced thereby improving both workplace safety and environmental protection at the same time.
What are safety barriers?
Available in various forms, including fixed-impact protection bollards and portable fencing, safety barriers are used in numerous facilities to minimise the chance of an accident occurring. They may do this by stopping people from entering an area deemed to be dangerous, or by restricting a part of the building that contains hazardous materials. Their most important function is to reduce risk. They do this by forming a physical barrier that stops entry or a softer barrier that acts as a warning of potential danger.
How can they enhance workplace safety?
Hard barriers, such as those in our impact and corner protection range, are secured into the ground using large bolts. These are designed to be hard-wearing and enduring, so if you are seeking a more permanent workplace barrier, a high-impact protection bollard can be an excellent choice.
Part of the way that we carry out health and safety checks is by identifying areas of concern, such as busy intersections. If your workplace has a traffic route, then safety railings help you to section off these thoroughfares from pedestrians. Our Safety Barrier Rail Crossbar comes in a bright yellow shade and is plastic coated. Designed for flexibility, it can be combined with other posts and rails to create bespoke environmental protection.
Where should they be placed?
Our workplace barriers are extremely adaptable and can be used to fence off sections of a carpark or construction site to keep the area clear. Some, such as our Drop Down Post Model B, can be bolted into place to secure a parking spot, whilse others, such as our extendable scissor bars, can be moved into place when needed. Immediately recognisable from their use in banks, at concerts, and at conferences, belt barriers guide the flow of human traffic and are retracted when not in use. They can be set up and left in place, or rearranged daily to manage areas where large numbers of people may be moving through a building.
