The Telescopic Safety Barrier is clamped to the rail foot of the live traffic line and has been engineered for varying line speeds
The Telescopic Safety Barrier improves track safety by providing a physical barrier that prevents workers accidentally entering the live traffic area.
The barrier can be used with any line speeds.
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.
The distance of the Telescopic Safety Barrier from the rail can be adjusted from 1.25m (4’) to 2.0m (6’6”), depending on the line speed.
The barrier arm is clamped to the rail foot of the live traffic line. The clamp spacing is approximately 2.5 to 2.7 metres.
The barrier arm is clamped to the rail foot of the live traffic line and no specialist tools or equipment are required. No buried services scan is needed before installation.
The barrier has insulating properties, providing protection in overhead line and third rail environments.
All components are fully reusable and are supplied in their own storage stillages, convenient for transporting.
The Telescopic Safety Barrier is suitable for flat-bottomed rails, bull-head rails and third rail areas. It is Network Rail approved for AC, DC and non-electrified track. It can be used at all train speeds.
Track lighting can be attached to the barrier using the Network Rail approved Lightmast Bracket.
