Protective Guarding Solutions at ProMat

A-Safe will show a selection of its most popular guarding solutions and latest innovations at ProMat 2019.

A-Safe Inc., a manufacturer of protective guarding for warehouses, distribution centers and other facilities, will have two exhibits at this year's ProMat show, which takes place April 8-11 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.

The main 20' x 20' booth (S1844), geared towards end users, will display pedestrian and traffic safety barrier solutions along with additional equipment such as alarm bars and column protection. A satellite exhibit (S1847) across the aisle will promote the company's Guardrail range of boxed products-solutions that are principally aimed at the reseller/distributor marketplace.

Both exhibits will be stocked with a selection of A-Safe's most popular products and latest innovations from iFlex, eFlex, mFlex, FlexiShield, ForkGuard, RackGuard and other ranges of pedestrian, traffic and building guarding solutions. Visitors to either booth will also be able to take away literature and company-themed souvenirs.

Paul Barlow, CEO at A-Safe Inc., said, "Our philosophy is to put knowledge into customers' hands to enable them to make informed decisions and take a more holistic approach to protective guarding within their workplaces. There is more to this marketplace than many realize. For example, what does it mean in real terms if a forklift represents a certain tonnage at a specific speed? We are driving though leadership about the impact of speed and weight, angle of impact, and the resulting kinetic energy that has to be dissipated by our products in the course of an event. Ultimately it comes down to this: is your guardrail fit for its intended purpose? Nobody wants to install a guardrail system that ultimately fails when it is most needed."

A-Safe will reinforce its safety messages before, during and after ProMat with references to PAS 13:2017, a code of practice for safety barriers used in traffic management within workplace environments, published by the British Standards Institution (BSI). The document also covers test methods for safety barrier impact.

Barlow continued: "Industrial workplace hazards are life-threatening, but there are no standards or regulations regarding guardrail in the U.S. outlining how this type of product is tested, verified or installed. For instance, the norm in the U.S. appears to be that a guardrail has to withstand 10,000 lbs. at 4 MPH, but this is not an industry standard-it has been inherited from an unknown source. This makes it very difficult for industry to make informed decisions. We want to change that so buying decision makers have a true comparative measure of performance between differing competitors."
