Safety Barriers

Safety Barriers provide protection for your employees and workplace from accidental damage. The strong metal barriers can be placed around a facility, such as hoop barriers for corners, whilst the Plastic or Perimeter Barriers improve safety for workers. Many of the safety barriers are manufactured in the UK to the current safety standards.

Warehouse Safety Barrier

Safety Barriers will help to protect your workforce and machinery from damage that could be caused by Forklift Trucks and other vehicles. They can be used in walkways to keep pedestrians and vehicles separated, and around machinery or workstations to protect against accidental impact damage.


Safety barriers can come in many shapes and sizes, including protection hoops for corners and discreet low level rails along with our more familiar walkway barriers. The range of safety barriers we offer here at First Mats UK come in vibrant colours to increase their visibility, and are built of highly durable and strong materials.


What are the benefits of safety barriers?

Using safety barriers brings several benefits to businesses that use them. The first and most obvious is that it helps in the protection of your facility, offering a barrier in areas where damage is likely to occur. This, in turn, can lead to substantial cost savings in repairs to the site.


Our range of safety barriers also ensures the safety of staff and visitors. Not only is this an ethically important aspect of running your business, but it also helps you to comply with UK health and safety requirements ensuring that should an accident occur you are in the best position to show that you took risk-limiting measures. This can save you a lot of time, hassle, and money associated with potential legal cases.


Finally, using protective safety barriers help you keep your site looking tidy and in good condition. This is beneficial should any clients visit the site as well as on any occasion where you may want to rent or sell the site onwards.


Who are safety barriers for?

Safety barriers are used across various industries for a multitude of reasons. This can include anything from using low-level protection barriers and corner hoop barriers to protect walls, machinery and racking from vehicles to using traffic flow plates to limit and control traffic flow.


Some businesses that typically use safety barriers include manufacturers, logistics, agriculture and food production, car parks, lorry yards and construction. Any business that deals with vehicles, employees or machinery that may cause damage should consider using a safety barrier as a method for limiting risk.


Which safety barriers should I use?

Which safety barrier you should use depends widely on the situation and the type of protection you need. The following safety barriers are the perfect option for a range of scenarios:


Low-Level Safety Barriers – suitable for protecting machinery, walls and racking from forklift trucks. These barriers are also low enough to not block pedestrian access.


Corner Hoop Barriers – perfect for protecting doorways or machinery in areas where vehicles have to make a turn.


Black & Yellow Perimeter Barriers – these barriers are ideal for keeping pedestrian walkways separate from traffic and machinery zones. They are tall enough to block pedestrians from accessing potentially hazardous areas.


Traffic Flow Plates – these plates can be used to limit and control the flow of traffic. They can be mounted in a way to limit access through certain doorways and roads. These are particularly useful when used in one way traffic systems.
