Reaching new heights of protection from high-level damage
16 April 2019
Workplace safety innovators, A-SAFE, have re-engineered their Height Restrictor to bring even more customer benefits.
A-SAFE is committed to providing workplace protection and safety solutions that are designed to minimise risk, injury and damage. The A-SAFE Height Restrictor offers guidance and physical protection; guarding against damage to vulnerable corners, columns, door openings and overhead assets such as sprinkler systems and ventilation pipes.
“The A-SAFE Height Restrictor has proved a popular product since launch. It can be used as a visual aid to direct traffic at the same time protecting surfaces and as flagging up any specific risks at height" reports A-SAFE's Product Manager; adding "this latest development introduces a new element of modularity. For our global clients this means the product is quicker to ship and quicker to install; reducing delivery and set-up times".
This modularity comes about thanks to two coupling mechanisms: the iFlex coupling which is a key component of the A-SAFE flexible polymer barrier range, and unique to the company's energy absorption system; and the new in-line coupling which enables the product to be adapted to the customers' needs in terms of vertical height.
Being easier and quicker to assemble means there is even less disruption to day-to-day activity during the installation process. According to A-SAFE’s Senior Design Engineer, “We are always looking at ways to improve the customer experience. Efficiency is a key driver and therefore anything we can do to minimise disruption to business as usual during installation is a key factor”.
Reducing disruption and minimising downtime is an important goal throughout the product's lifetime. Thanks to A-SAFE's exclusive self-coloured polymer composition, high visibility is ensured and its inbuilt strength and durability further supports the ultra-low maintenance solution. The unique composition of the A-SAFE polymer gives the Height Restrictor a unique capacity to flex, absorb impact and dissipate impact forces whilst retaining its integrity. This enables warehouse and factory managers to concentrate on the job at hand, safe in the knowledge the product is working to safeguard the business assets effectively year-on-year.
As the inventors of the world’s first industrial strength polymer safety barrier, A-SAFE’s aim across its entire range is to give each customer the tools to create a safer, best practice working environment. The Height Restrictor complements this, and integrates seamlessly into the A-SAFE range of workplace protection solutions; adding valuable protection to busy environments.
