Impact Protection (55)The products offered in this category are designed for the protection of staff, stock and static machinery from damage by materials handling equipment and vehicles like forklift trucks. They include a wide range of high visibility impact protection barriers and guards. Damage to machinery or racking can be costly and seriously disrupt warehouse operations. Injury to personnel would have far more serious consequences. The use of heavy duty warehouse and factory barriers and bollards will make a significant contribution to site safety. There are a wide range of different products available, but they generally fall into the following categories:-
- Modular railing systems for the protection of pedestrian walkways and machinery
- Low level floor bars that effectively act as wheel stops
- Racking protection barriers and guards comprising U or L profile single upright guards and end rack protection rails for shelving and pallet racking
- Floor mounted posts or bollards for both internal and external use
- Foam strip impact protection in a variety of profiles which provide both visual warning and safety cushioning to hard, unyielding edges and objects
Pedestrian Safety Barriers (28)The Safety Barriers and other products offered in this section are specifically selected with the protection of pedestrians and personnel in mind. They are designed to protect walkways or cordon off areas to which access is restricted on safety grounds. The Health and Safety Executive strongly recommend that risk assessments are conducted and high visibility pedestrian and personnel safety barriers are installed at locations where there is the potential for injury to personnel on your site. We have included both fixed barriers that are bolted to the floor and removable temporary barriers including chain stand sets and retractable belt barriers that can be easily placed in position as required. The heavy duty and very heavy duty railing systems can be mounted on flexible shock absorbing polyurethane pads. These allow the rail to flex up to 10° from the vertical when impacted minimising the damage to handling equipment whilst still offering the best protection.
Traffic Management (33)Controlling vehicular traffic on site makes a significant contribution to safety and Advantage Safety Barriers offer equipment for a variety of traffic management tasks. The products we have selected include a range of traffic calming speed humps with different ramp angles to slow traffic to 15mph, 10mph or down to 5mph. We have also included kerb ramps, parking wheel stops of various lengths, two and three channel cable and hose protection ramps and acrylic observation mirrors. Some of the items offered are produced from recycled materials. All the drive over products above are heavy duty and suitable for traffic up to HGV weight.
Pallet Gates (1)
Temporary Barriers (22)These removable and temporary barriers are designed to cordon off areas to which access is restricted or alert personnel to a short term hazard such as minor construction works or liquid spillages. Our chain posts are the ideal low cost solution and are quickly and easily put into place. They have a low centre of gravity for stability and a corrosion proof plastic construction with polyethylene chain. We offer a range of post and wall mounted retractable belt barriers designed for use in scenarios as diverse as queue guidance, industrial sites, warehouses, parking facilities and crowd control. The self-tensioning belts are easily and smoothly deployed from the cassettes with a controlled retraction. Stainless steel post and wall mounted models offer a stylish finish for office and retail use at an affordable cost. Our industrial belt barriers are available in high visibility colours and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use with a magnetic fixing wall mounted option for total portability.
Cycle Storage (4)Although the storage of bicycles is outside the main brief of this website, Advantage Safety Barriers have included these products because they offer such great value. The models featured range from single bike wall mounted racks up to double sided bike racks and stands for up to 12 bicycles accommodating tyre widths from 50 to 55mm. The single bike rack is particularly appealing to domestic customers and is hinged to be adjustable through 180 degrees so that bicycles can be parked facing the wall or moved round to sit against it, saving space in confined areas. These bike racks have a zinc plated, hot dip galvanised or powder coated finish and are all suitable for outdoor use. Some of the bicycle racks are delivered fully assembled and others are flat packed for easy assembly complete with fastenings and instructions. Applications include domestic bike storage, company cycle parks, public or school cycle stands.
