The Shoulder Clearance Safety Barrier is designed to clear a high ballast shoulder, it is clamped to the rail foot of the live traffic line with minimal ballast disturbance.
The Shoulder Clearance Safety Barrier improves track safety by providing a physical barrier that prevents workers accidentally entering the live traffic area.
The barrier is ideal for use where there is a high ballast shoulder.
Workers caught on the wrong side of the safety barrier can easily re-enter the safe zone.
The barrier enables higher train running speeds on adjacent lines, resulting in significant cost savings thanks to fewer train delay penalties.
Installation is fast and efficient, with no need for specialist tools or equipment. There is no disturbance of the ballast shoulder.
The Shoulder Clearance Safety Barrier arm is clamped to the rail foot of the live traffic line. The clamp spacing is approximately 2.5 to 2.7 metres.
No tools are required to install the barrier and the process of clamping it to the rail foot is quick and easy.
The barrier arm has been designed to clear a high ballast shoulder. The non-telescopic barrier is set at 4-foot (1.25m) from the running rail.
The barrier has insulating properties, providing protection in overhead line environments.
All components are fully reusable and are supplied in their own storage stillages, convenient for transporting.
The Shoulder Clearance Safety Barrier has been designed for compatibility with flat-bottomed rail profiles.
Track lighting can be attached to the barrier using the Network Rail approved Lightmast Bracket.
