Safety Barriers

2 safety barriers which reduce costly possession times and significantly improve worker safety - Standard Telescopic Safety Barrier and Fixed Safety Barrier.

Safety Barriers

Standard Telescopic Safety Barrier: suitable for use on line speeds over 100mph at its 2m setting.  Approved for use on Network Rail and London Underground networks in both DC and non DC areas

Fixed Safety Barrier: 3-4 foot / 0.9-1.25m non-telescopic safety barrier – designed to clear a high ballast shoulder
