The all new HDPE plastic street works and manhole safety barrier is here.
Using the latest moulding processes and made from plastic instead of steel, these gates can be battered and scraped all without the worry of weakening from rust corrosion and metal shape retention. Not only are they more durable, they are 30% lighter making these effortless to carry around. The all new design now incorporates top hinges for deploying in straight lines and increasing stability.
Why Use Plastic Instead of Metal?
The metal Safe Gate was an established product well suited to the job of protecting manholes and ground works from being disturbed by pedestrians. The downside to the metal Safe Gates is that after lots of use they start to discolour and rust. They are also prone to denting and bending.
After taking into consideration the issues of the metal safe gate, we now offer a new plastic safe workgate which is Chapter 8 Compliant and has all the same abilities as the metal Safe Gates.
