Just a test:
FlexiBarrier is a product developed to cope with the rough handling of goods and containers offshore. Adjacent railing and protection systems in lay-down areas can often be damaged, causing work delays and safety problems.
FlexiBarriers consist of hinged and energy absorbing posts and horizontal railings with flexible interconnections. Footplates for the posts are delivered, which can either be welded or bolted to steel or aluminium decks. The railing can be supplied in different heights and with optional numbers of rails.
Each post has a flexible band that allows it to bend, at the base of the post, from a vertical, upright position to an angled position depending on the load striking against it. The railings attached to the posts, which make up a barrier ‘wall’ will aid in limiting the movement of the load and move with the posts. The flexibility of the barrier prevents damage to the railings.
Once the load is removed from the barrier wall, the flexible bands return the posts and their attached railings to an upright, vertical position.
Its unique design, along with aluminium’s properties of low weight and high resistance to corrosion, offer great advantages over comparable steel constructions for shipping and offshore installations.
The FlexiBarrier can also be extended to a larger flexi-wall structure. These can be used as protection for sensitive equipment, near lay-down areas and other high-risk areas.
