Modularity can be defined as a set of interchangeable parts that, when combined, form a whole. In an A-SAFE barrier system modularity forms a key part of the barriers’ overall functionality. With iFlex, modularity has been improved and streamlined, so that the rails and posts that make up a barrier system are easily replaceable, interchangeable and even upgradeable.
Should a post, rail or set of components become damaged, a unique ergonomic design allows them to be uprooted and replaced with minimum disruption, saving huge manpower costs, maintenance hours and facility downtimes.
As well as this, if a facility owner decides to upgrade a barrier set to a more robust system, this is a simple, time-focused and cost-friendly process.
A-SAFE barriers’ modularity is further improved by a multi-directional capability that allows rails to attach to posts at any desired angle. This function improves the way barriers can be laid out within a facility and removes the hard angles that can often be the cause of vehicle impacts.
