"The gantry that we wanted to protect was a problem area and constantly being damaged by forklift trucks. This was a very vulnerable area and I don’t think anyone believed that A-SAFE solutions would stand up to the test or fare any better than the system we had in place previously. However, it more than did its job and was the catalyst to review the site and start replacing steel barriers with A-SAFE ones."
