New Product Flash: SpanGuard Safety Barrier From Rite-Hite Corporation

The SpanGuard Safety Barrier from Rite-Hite Corporation is designed to separate and define large work areas, long walkways, interior loading docks, or protect openings in the floor. In seeking to maintain a safe environment, facility managers often use other strategies, such as marking with yellow lines, placing steel guards, or other “homemade” designs. However, these approaches have limitations when trying to maximize safety and productivity.SpanGuard from Rite-Hite provides a 48" high visual safety barrier.

According to OSHA, 18% of forklift accidents involve pedestrians. The SpanGuard Safety Barrier helps improve facility safety by providing a 48” high visual barrier and is available in 30’ or 60’ spans connected between two steel mounting posts. It requires one person less than two minutes to position or remove the unit. For opening widths less than 30’ or 60’, the excess curtain can be stored in the storage cylinder.

The steel mounting posts are 4” square x 49” high tall powder coat painted safety yellow. The unit is designed to stop 200 lbs. of force with minimal deflection. SpanGuard can be used in multiple configurations by using corner post(s) and two or more units can be linked together with a common member post(s).
