This trust in testing is the foundation for meaningful long-standing relationships with many of the best-known global companies.
PAS 13 is published by the British Standards Institution (BSI). It is the world’s first and most widely used code of practice for safety barriers in industrial workplaces. PAS 13 specifies criteria for the impact testing and installation of workplace safety barriers.
Compliance with PAS 13 sets our guardrails apart. It means we employ dynamic standardized testing, replicating real-life rather than relying on slow “push” tests or running ad-hoc unscientific impacts. Most importantly, we invite TÜV Nord to observe our tests and verify product performance. Our TÜV Nord verification mark applies to our testing as well as our range of impact products. Most importantly, we can provide the certification to prove it.Standards and compliance

All our impact products are designed, tested and rated for repeat impacts from a specific weight and speed of vehicle. A test is only considered a success if the product withstands and recovers from the impact without failing. This approach provides complete transparency for our customers, while also ensuring our products deliver massive costs savings in maintenance and repairs. Many other safety barrier suppliers simply rate their products according to the point of failure. This can result in misleading joules ratings and a significantly increased risk of injuries and costly guardrail repairs.

"I don’t know of any other barrier that exists on the market that meets the testing regime that A-SAFE does."
Many safety barrier manufacturers make claims about the performance of their products. How do you ensure that the workplace safety solution you choose is fit for purpose? In this video, we explore the six questions you should be asking your safety barrier supplier.
The unique safety problems of sub-zero cold stores and freezer facilities need specially developed solutions. Our exclusive cold storage range is made from a specially formulated blend of polymers for optimum performance at sub-zero temperatures. It is also tested rigorously at these temperatures, with the surface reading of the barrier taken before each impact. This ensures tests replicate real-life conditions with dynamic impacts at speed.
