Safety barriers: everything you need for protection

There is nothing more important than security and SafeSite’s safety barriers provide that for companies across the UK. Using our barriers, you will achieve a safe environment whether you need to control the flow of people, vehicles, or even water.

Security barriers are a familiar and widely used feature of best practice in the workplace, promoted in safety training and, above all, essential to the effective and safe application of laws and regulations.

The fact is you can’t afford to skip buying safety barriers. When you do use them, you must use industry-recognised, tried and tested equipment. Failure to deploy barriers or the use of inadequate units can, in some scenarios, lead to a devastating loss of human life.

SafeSite supplies a comprehensive range of high-performance barriers in order to safely and reliably control the movement of people and vehicles and to prevent flooding. Market leading organisations across the UK rely on our barriers because they are proven, user-friendly and effective in keeping everyone safe.

Order social distancing barriers

In this era of the ‘new normal,’ it’s expected behaviour for us all to keep a little bit more distance from each other when in public. This sensible precaution lessens the chances of infections like Covid-19 and Influenza being transmitted from person to person in crowded environments.

However, people are all too human and sometimes forget the conventions of social distancing, so why not set yourself apart from the crowd and buy or rent our social distancing barriers? The interconnecting design allows the simple construction of a sturdy barrier that’s very difficult to penetrate. These barriers are compatible with many other products in our range for wider application.
