Nissan is a Japanese international automotive manufacturer headquartered in Nishi-ku, Yokohama, with multiple manufacturing sites across the world.


For Britain’s largest car production plant of all time, Nissan required a protective solution to boost health and safety for the 6,700 employees based at its UK site, which has recently received investment of £240 million. Specifically, Nissan needed to implement safe pedestrian access throughout the facility, ensuring people and vehicle traffic didn’t interact.


To maintain safe manufacturing operations, A-SAFE manufactured, supplied and installed 67 metres of iFlex Pedestrian 3 Rail Barrier to protect key, high traffic walkways throughout the facility. The barriers were installed to ensure pedestrians could navigate the facility via designated, segregated pedestrian pathways, safeguarded by a solution with the power to deflect damaging impacts from workplace vehicle traffic.

Our iFlex barriers are purpose designed to provide industry-leading workplace protection. On impact, iFlex barriers absorb kinetic energy, dissipating it through the barriers to minimise damage to the floor, before flexing back to their original shape.
