Designed to be used around the perimeter of an excavation to act as a barrier and to protect workers within the excavation from any falling debris.
With our new Universal Edge Protection Barriers, we are the first temporary works specialist to meet and exceed BS EN 13374:2013 Class A & Class B - the Standards for Temporary Edge Protection (independently tested by Lloyds British test house).
This means that our Universal barriers can prevent large pieces of debris falling through it and are able to resist a dynamic force large enough to stop a person who is falling, sliding or rolling down a slope of up to 30°.
It’s designed to be offset, so that it is clear of any Trench box lifting points, so the lifting chains can be safely attached without removing the edge protection. Fully compatible with our range of Trench boxes and Trench Sheets & Sheet Piles.
SheetGuard is compatible with our range of trench sheets & sheet piles. It has an adjustable barrier stop allowing for the height of the barriers to be set at varying heights.
