Materials Handling showcased their A-Safe Polymer Barriers last week at National Manufacturing Week (NMW) 2012.

John Brittain, managing director at Materials Handling, says that the company's continued support for NMW is due to the positive results received each year. He sees the show as a perfect opportunity for Materials Handling to showcase its most current offering in the safety barrier range.

According to Materials Handling, its innovative, modular constructed A-Safe Polymer Barriers will effectively make conventional steel barriers obsolete.

"The barriers are manufactured from a polymer-based material. It doesn’t damage anything that collides with it as it will spring back to its original shape, reducing the need for damage repairs," says Brittain.

To get an idea of its strength and durability, the A-Safe Polymer Barriers can take a 'collision' from a 2.5 tonne forklift at 12kms per hour.

Its highly visible safety Yellow and Black colour scheme allows pedestrians and drivers to see it from a reasonable distance.

The comprehensive A-Safe Polymer Barriers are available as traffic and pedestrian barriers, car park barriers, bollards, rack end barriers, handrails and access gates.
