Overhead Guardian Goal Posts

Each Guardian Goal Posts set comprises of:

  • 2 lightweight telescopic pole units which extend up to 6m in length
  • 2 galvanised and weighted steel bases – each weighing 25 kg
  • 1 x 25m length of red and white warning bunting

These telescopic poles are manufactured from non-conductive Glass Reinforced Polyester Resin (GRP) and carry highly a visible red / white warning design. Bases can be used without ballast, although the bases include holes to allow screw-fixing for additional security.

Safety and deployment

A site-specific risk assessment will identify the optimum location for installation of Safesite’s Guardian Goal Posts. Posts should be positioned in compliance with the Health & Safety Executive’s GS6 “avoidance of danger from overhead electric power lines.” The tension of the bunting length will be an additional safety consideration, so an ample 25m of bunting supplied to suit most situations.

For additional safety in night use, 24-volt lighting sets are available.

Bases are fully tested to withstand winds of up to 11 km/hr without ballast. For windier conditions, additional weighting with sandbags is recommended and these can be easily incorporated to bases.

Convenience and portability

The Guardian Goal Post system is easy to transport around and between sites. The lightweight pole allows for quick installation by one person only and the telescopic design allows easy packing away and storage.

All round site safety

With the full 6m extension of the poles, SafeSite’s Overhead Guardian Goal Post system offers full height clearance over carriageways and full compliance with GS6, to maximise site safety. Available now with UK-wide delivery from Safe Site Facilities.

Very noticeable and easy to use
Date Published: 11/03/2019

We ordered these in blue and white as our machinery is red, they really stood out and were noticeable for all. Simple to extend to the height we required. We went for the steel base so we could secure the goal post to the floor, we felt this was just right for us opting for maximum stability. The weather forecasts for the start of the project were going to be gales so choosing the base we can fix into the floor (which I orchestrated) in our opinion was the best decision. It was straightforward to transport to other site areas as needed, genuinely fantastic product 5 stars.

Easy to use and HSE compliant
Date Published: 20/06/2019

Hired this product for emergency overhead works in Lambeth, we had a lot of tipping trailers and cranes passing each other for the length of this project so the Guardian goal posts were vital in our operations. These are clear to see and did not blend in to our surroundings, Safesite really know what they are doing. Easy for a single operative to erect. Completely HSE compliant, really aided our planning and enabled us to carry out the work safely. Thanks to all the team at Safesite, will recommend.

Pdf product sheet – awesome info
Date Published: 28/11/2019

I’ve got to say it wasn’t something that I’d actually heard of before until my line manager asked me to source some. The lady on the phone was really knowledgeable as was the pdf product spec sheet on overhead goal posts. Your guys went out of your way to make sure I understood what I was purchasing. Really happy, manager is happy, site is safe.
