Since trialling a small section of double-rail traffic barrier at its paper pulping line in Flint, UK, Kimberly Clark has appointed A-Safe as an approved supplier worldwide, with ASafe now installed across its warehouses internationally.
Kimberly Clark says that it chose the polymer-based safety barrier systems over and above steel equivalents because it provided the strength and durability of steel, with the flexibility, and reduced maintenance of plastic.
The plastic used has a special inbuilt memory, similar to an elastic band, so any impact will be absorbed and then will automatically spring back to its original shape. Therefore, unlike its steel contemporaries, the ASafe plastic does not need to be replaced or repaired each time it is hit.
