 Safety Handrail


BBC Tomorrow’s World 1972
I guess getting interest from the BBC’s flagship science program "Tomorrow’s World" was on the top of most inventors' wish lists. In those days there were no faxes, text or email so it took just a simple handwritten letter to the producers to get a result.
When the reply from the BBC show did finally come I had to read it over a few times to get the words to sink in! The shows producers liked my idea for rubber speed bumps, in fact they liked it so much they wanted to see and test some examples.
Could I ship them to TV Centre in London? Please take a look at the short (5-minute) video sent to us for our web site by the BBC (home video recorders had not been invented yet) and read my story.

Bright yellow raised safety line marking
Tough injection moulded plastic, bright yellow. Our LineStopper raised tactile line marking system stops the need to keep on painting those safety lines in the workshop and warehouse. You can also ‘feel’ when you walk over and stray from the safety of the marked line.
Each moulded metre section of the plastic raised LineStopper is 15mm thick and will send a clear signal to any one walking by that they are standing or crossing over a safety line. There are many locations where there is a mix of pedestrians and fast moving warehouse traffic and the raised tactile safety line will reduce the risk of site accidents.

Compact freestanding steel safety handrail
Erecting a proven and compact safety handrail on a roof's edge is a job best done quickly. Our galvanised steel freestanding handrail system can be installed in minutes without special tools. The system has no fixings to penetrate or cause problems with the waterproof membrane; each upright has a counterbalance metal foot for stability.
It takes just three steel uprights to create a safety barrier that meets the EN BS requirements for safe working where there is danger of a fall. Flat roofs will always require access for maintenance work and even with training, two personnel and a safety working permit program your site roof edges have to be protected to keep people safe!

Out and about . . .
This out and about section is great fun, you never know where your products might turn up next. I stopped for a comfort stop and an overpriced coffee on the M40 at Oxford Services and found our black steel JB1 bollards at the entrance. This is an unusual application, these type of steel bollards are normally marked up in black and yellow hazard colours and installed to protect warehouse doors.
I presume that the owners of Oxford Services are not expecting any forklift traffic or extra wide loads but I guess they have used the bollards for extra security. One mystery; why is there always an empty cigarette packet placed carefully on top of the bollard (you can just see it at the back of the photo)?
