Machinery and equipment protection

Prevent costly damage and downtime by protecting essential machinery, conveyors and equipment from vehicle impacts.

Protect your assets

Industrial guardrails protecting machinery
Essential machinery

Repairing or replacing high-value industrial machinery can be difficult and exceptionally expensive. Downtime and reduced capacity can make it difficult to meet customer demand.

Heavy duty barriers protecting assets
Vital building equipment

Damage to utilities can lead to power outages and impacts to equipment such as sprinkler systems can ruin large volumes of stock. Operational disruption can reduce output and have massive implications for business loss.

Damaged forklift
Material handling equipment

Damaged vehicles reduce fleet operating capacity and repairs can be costly. Where vehicles are hired, damage from impacts will incur charges for repair or replacement.

Keeping your assets safe from damage

Impact zones

The impact zone of a guardrail is the part that connects with the vehicle during an impact. If a guardrail is too low, vehicles with a greater ground clearance may drive over it. Our safety experts tailor every solution to ensure it is suitable for the vehicles in use.

Safety barrier standards Pas 13

Impact resistance

Impact ratings allow you to assess the impact resistance of the guardrails you choose and ensure the level of protection is adequate for your facility. A-SAFE barriers are impact-rated to the PAS 13 standard and independently certified by test experts TÜV Nord for complete reassurance.

"The initial cost of installing A-SAFE barriers has been more than offset by the savings we have made on the replacement of damaged parts and regular painting and maintenance. The barriers are effective in reducing damage to our forklift trucks, and the workforce feel confident that they are better protected."
