The ASSET WORKS SAFETY GATE
With increased focus on worker safety across the UK road network, Asset International VRS, in partnership with Balfour Beatty – Vinci JV, have developed the Works Safety Gate (WSG) to greatly reduce the danger faced by road workers when adjacent to works access points.
Developed for both the approved Varioguard® and Zoneguard® temporary vehicle restraint systems, the Asset WSG further raises the bar when considering the safety of road workers and the travelling public at the necessary works access points required within major
A typical 48m length WSG installed at a works access point, can be opened manually by removing the securing pins at 8m centres and separating the WSG into manually manageable lengths, or via a towing hitch to a vehicle thus opening the area up and providing access to works vehicles and subsequently closing using the same methodology maintaining a secure and safe environment at all times during the works.
The highly visible red and white powder coated sections of the WSG clearly define the access points within the works presenting clear delineation for works vehicle drivers.
The Asset WSG is part of the unrivalled suite of products on offer from Asset International and is available in a multitude of lengths from 48m to 168m for any planned or existing works throughout the Highways England network.
The Asset WSG is unique in the fact that existing road worker professionals can be trained by Asset International instructors to operate the system safely and when necessary, which means that access to the work site can be arranged at short notice in a controlled and extremely safe manner.
