Applications of our Pedestrian Safety Barriers include:

Warehouses: Deploy the Double Bumper Pedestrian Safety Barrier to create secure pedestrian walkways throughout warehouses. This facilitates the smooth movement of personnel while preventing accidents in workspaces shared with forklifts and other equipment. The Pedestrian Safety Barriers (SEG+) are particularly suited for segregating forklifts and pedestrians in areas with a significant volume of foot traffic, such as production lines, assembly areas, and busy logistic centre environments.

Industrial Facilities: Enhance safety by using the Polymer Safety Barrier to establish dedicated pedestrian pathways. This segregation of foot traffic from machinery and vehicles prevents potential accidents in bustling industrial environments. Our Guardrail Systems (MHE / PIT) is perfect at separating forklifts and equipment from pedestrian routes, protecting low impacts along the ground.

Food Production Facilities: Implement our Pedestrian Safety Barriers in food processing zones to maintain a distinct separation between workers and equipment. This ensures hygienic operations and reduces the risk of collisions. Our Polymer range from Single Bumper Barriers to Double Bumper Pedestrian Barriers are excellent for areas where water, mould, corrosion, and solvents will unavoidably be prevalent.

Freezer Environments: The durable construction of the Polymer Safety Barrier, combined with its ability to withstand extreme temperatures, renders it suitable for use in freezer storage areas. It provides clear demarcation and safety for personnel navigating in sub-zero conditions. Our Polymer range from Double Bumper Barriers to Single Bumper Pedestrian Barriers are excellent for areas where water, mould, corrosion, and solvents will unavoidably be prevalent. Additionally, Pedestrian Handrails (HR50) are great for giving potentially hazardous pathways through cold environments an extra level of safety. The Pedestrian Handrail Systems (HR50) can be paired with our Armco 760HR Safety Barrier for further protection from vehicles, making them an ideal solution for access ramps.

Brandsafe’s Pedestrian Safety Barriers SEG are primarily constructed from high-density polyethylene (HDPE). This material is known for its durability, impact resistance, and long-lasting performance. Additionally, HDPE is non-toxic and recyclable, making it an environmentally friendly choice. In certain products, steel components are also used to enhance structural integrity and provide additional protection against impacts. The Pedestrian Safety Barriers SEG+ have the option to include extra low-level protection. This includes a low-level Armco Barrier for extra forklift protection. Please see the product specification sheet for full details.

The Guardrail is primarily constructed from heavy-duty steel, designed for low-level machinery protection, pedestrian walkways, or even a 3-meter high version for enhanced safety in various applications. This robust construction ensures maximum protection in industrial environments. Please see the product specification sheet for full details.

Both polymer (HDPE) and metal pedestrian safety barriers have unique properties and uses, making them suitable for different applications.

HDPE Barriers:

  • Impact Resistance: HDPE barriers are designed to absorb and deflect impacts, reducing damage to both the barrier and the floor. This makes them particularly effective in environments where impacts are frequent.
  • Durability: They are resistant to corrosion, making them ideal for use in harsh environments where exposure to moisture or chemicals is a concern. This characteristic also means they require less maintenance and have a longer lifespan in such conditions.
  • Applications: HDPE barriers are commonly used in warehouses, industrial facilities, and food production areas where there is a need for durable, low-maintenance solutions. They are also suitable for cold storage environments due to their ability to withstand extreme temperatures.

Metal Barriers:

  • Strength: Metal barriers offer high strength and rigidity, providing excellent protection in areas with heavy machinery and high-impact risks. Their solid construction can be beneficial in settings where maximum force absorption is needed.
  • Versatility: Metal barriers can be used in a wide range of environments and are often used due to their robustness.
  • Applications: Metal barriers are typically used in areas with heavy machinery, rigidity is required. They are also suitable for creating defined pedestrian walkways and protecting structural assets.

Both types of barriers provide effective protection, and choosing the right material depends on the specific needs of the environment.

Yes, we offer customisation options for their safety barriers and guardrails. While the standard colours are typically high-visibility shades such as yellow and black, alternative colours can be requested to match specific corporate branding requirements. This helps in maintaining a consistent aesthetic across facilities while ensuring safety​.

HDPE barriers require minimal maintenance compared to metal barriers. Regular inspections should be conducted to check for any signs of damage from impacts. We offer a free health and safety audit of all our equipment six months to a year after installation to check on the condition of the barriers and their integrity. Cleaning is straightforward and can be done with standard cleaning agents. If a section of the barrier is significantly damaged, it will need to be replaced to provide full protection for future near misses.

While the initial cost of HDPE barriers may be higher than some traditional metal barriers, they offer cost savings over time due to their durability, low maintenance requirements, and reduced need for replacements. Their ability to withstand impacts without significant damage also reduces repair and replacement costs for both the barriers and the surrounding infrastructure. Overall, Brandsafe barriers can provide a cost-effective safety solution when considering long-term benefits​.

Yes, we offer Pedestrian Handrail Systems (HR50) that are ideal for use on mezzanines and stairs. These handrails provide robust safety and support for elevated platforms, ensuring the safety of personnel working at height. In larger warehouses, we have used Polymer Pedestrian Barriers for maximum protection as these barriers are tested to PAS 13 standards. These areas still use some type of material handling equipment.
