Safety plays a vital role in the successful functioning of warehouses. Undoubtedly, managing pedestrian and forklift traffic is an initial task to prevent accidents and injuries. A cost-effective solution is the installation of safety barriers. Our carefully selected range of barriers, whether temporary or permanent barrier systems, can help you create a safe environment to work in.
First and foremost, assess the space you currently have and decide whether you require a temporary or permanent solution. When planning your warehouse layout, consider mapping out traffic routes on paper. Establish problematic areas where forklifts and pedestrians might cross paths and insert walkway barriers or gate barriers to reduce risks. Most of the guard barriers we currently offer are modular. Their layouts can be modified at intervals as your business expands. For advice on a custom or bespoke barrier system live chat with our sales team. Who will be more than happy to help.
Forklift-related accidents happen. However, if forklifts are constantly damaging corners or pallets, taking some preventive measures can help avoid bigger repairs. Impact protection barriers come in all shapes and sizes. They can be made of rigid foam, for a flexible and protective layer between machines and surfaces. Wooden beams are replaceable if broken. For a durable option, choose steel protection barriers. Which can also be used to protect corners, columns, shelving or racking.
To create safe work areas, pedestrian walkways and traffic lanes, protective posts are another option. They enable a flexible demarcation where pedestrians can move freely, while restricting forklifts to lanes. Some of our ranges are modular in the way that they allow the bollards and posts to double up as barriers if required.
If you currently have a limited amount of space or are looking for a temporary option, you can use mobile barriers. Which can be arranged in lines and run as far as you require. They are lightweight, highly visible and easy to move. This therefore means that when they are no longer in use you can quickly and easily store them safely for next time. So, for utmost flexibility, opt for a dynamic system which incorporates expanding barriers. A single solution for any situation, they are highly versatile and easy to configure. We highly recommend them if you are looking for a one-size-fits-all solution.
