Applications and Benefits
This is a robust product in the pedestrian segregation range and is designed to segregate pedestrians from traffic, machinery and potential hazards. This product clearly marks out areas for walkways, equipment, guidance and building organisation. Used in warehousing, manufacturing, airports, maintenance pit protection and around any relevant building inside or out. Extras such as swing gates, slide gates, sign boards and kick plates are easily added.
"The reason for choosing this system was ease and speed of install, the product is also more aesthetically pleasing than standard Armco or key clamp, and is more resistant, as scuffs and knocks etc do not leave highly visible scratches and dents, and it is also far easier to clean and maintain."
