Chemical Factory Safety Barriers

Question: Why can you never trust atoms?

Answer: They make up everything. Sorry for the bad chemistry joke but all the good ones Argon.

Okay, okay, we promise that’s the last joke we’ll make. Fortunately for our clients, our chemical factory safety barriers are much better than our attempt at chemical humour.

Our flexible impact safety barriers provide a far better solution than metal safety barriers and here’s why…

Strong, impact resistant and flexible safety barriers

Metal safety barriers stop vehicles from crashing into infrastructure but they don’t absorb the impact. Often the shock is concentrated on the footplates and fixations of the barrier which causes cracking to the floor and that can be very expensive to repair. When a vehicle hits a metal safety barrier it may cause a lot of damage to the vehicle but the force of the impact can also cause major injury to the driver.

Our FLEX IMPACT® plastic barriers are made from a polymer that is equivalent in strength to steel. They absorb the impact by flexing. This decreases the shock to the vehicle, minimising the damage and reducing injury to the driver. The force of the impact dissipates throughout the barrier which eliminates damage to the floor.

After an impact, the factory safety barriers return to their original shape and remain just as strong and shock absorbent as before.


What makes Plastic Safety Barriers suitable for chemical factories?

Our Plastic Safety Barriers are ideal for chemical factories because they don’t corrode or rust. They are far more chemical resistant than steel barriers and there is no risk of oxidation so they are more hygienic. They can withstand harsh weather conditions, high saline and corrosive environments.

Chemical factory safety barriers are just one of the innovative safety solutions we offer. Boplan products are already being utilised in many businesses within the petrochemical and chemical industry. Our solutions are used in oil refineries and offshore drilling platforms as well as factories and warehouses. Clients we work with in this industry include GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), AksoNobel, BASF and BP.
