Gatwick off to a flyer with A-Safe

24 June 2010

A-safe is now rapidly been recognised as the approved safety barrier supplier at Gatwick due to high performance and cost-effective protection they provide. In fact Gatwick has benefited from a bespoke design, especially created to solve a safety barrier challenge posed by the airport.

 As a result, A-Safe’s hexagonal Atlas barrier has been designed to replace the steel structures Gatwick were previously using for mast protection. This will then be rolled out across the apron to provide first class protection to all its numerous mast and columns.

Director of A-Safe, James Smith said: "Our Atlas range is designed with airports in mind. No two sites are same or have exactly the same needs. Therefore we work closely with the airport to provide a system that is fit for purpose and is exactly for the application in mind. The new Hexagonal Atlas barrier is testament to this."

The unique design of A-Safe’s range of barriers ensures that it is flexible enough to withstand impacts exceeding the BAA standard 6-9 times so, if hit by a vehicle, the barrier will simply spring back into shape without bending or buckling. The innovative polymer bend that is used in producing A-Safe’s range of barriers with its high level absorption properties also ensures that the airport benefits from long term, low cost maintenance and repair as opposed to steel counterparts.

A-Safe’s Atlas barriers are also installed on other leading airport sites around the world including Stanstead, Dublin and Frankfurt.
