Our Scientific Difference

Striving to bring the world's brightest minds to our HQ, and providing a custom-equipped innovation centre, we invest heavily to drive the future of workplace safety

Our award-winning barriers are designed, tested and engineered by us, so you can be assured of uncompromising quality.

Our award-winning barriers are designed, tested and engineered by us, so you can be assured of uncompromising quality.

Manufactured from an exclusive material with advanced technology and a patented product design, our world-leading barriers are truly unique and completely unrivalled. Our solutions are crafted from an exclusive advanced technology called Memaplex™. This unique blend of eight components is expertly combined to create a robust, flexible material.

Patented coupling technology linking our barriers is completely unique.

Ordinarily a weak point in other barriers, through constant innovation and development we engineered a new advanced coupling that actually improves strength.

Most polymer rails will break apart from the connecting post under high impact, or in the case of steel barrier the entire floor can be ripped up, requiring costly major repairs and downtime. Our coupling technology is designed with a patented three-phase energy absorption system, each phase activating sequentially to reduce and disperse impact energy throughout the barrier. This prevents large amounts of kinetic energy from reaching and damaging floors and fixings.

The three-layer composite design adds further technological features.

The high-visibility UV-protected outer layer is corrosion and chemical resistant, the second layer acts as an absorption zone diffusing kinetic energy away from the impact point, whilst the inner nucleus provides increased strength and flexibility. Our manufacturing facilities include state of the art custom-built machinery, specially designed to stretch the molecular structure of our polymers and orientate the flow at point of formation. This realigns the molecules into a grid structure, giving Memaplex™ an inbuilt memory not found in standard polymers.

A truly inimitable process that allows our product to flex, absorb and recover for repeat use.

We employ dynamic scientific testing using fixed pendulum and ramp-accelerated impacts, replicating real-life rather than relying on slow “push” tests. Most importantly, we test for repeat use.

By absorbing and dispersing kinetic energy, A-SAFE barriers can take repeat impacts at a force that would break other barriers or rip-up floor fixings, providing a fast and permanent return on investment. Our products are TÜV certified and rigorously tested beyond industry standards.

We have over thirty years of experience in polymer extrusion, and extensive expertise in advanced forms of injection moulding from twin-shot to rotational techniques.

Since inventing the world’s first fixed polymer safety barrier in 2001, our product and technology have evolved considerably. We never stand still, and are now producing next generation safety barriers and continuing to push workplace safety towards a more technologically advanced future.
