Afix is launching its new lightweight guardrail in January 2016. This guardrail will be delivered in two versions: fixed size and extensible guardrail.
This lightweight guardrail is the result of 2 years of research and development in collaboration with university research centres and leading engineering offices specialised in the development of innovative plastics and plastic applications. The ideal section and shape were determined by using calculation software according to the EN standards in the field of fiberglass.
YELLOW TUBE: the fixed guardrail version: is a reinforced plastic tube with two slimline wedge heads at the end.
LIFE TUBE: the extendible guardrail version: is also a reinforced plastic tube with possible lengths between 1.09m and 3.07m. Suitable for a multitude of applications. By means of the Afix “Life Tube” holder, a guardrail can be placed at the higher level without the need of already placing floors. See here how to do this.
Advantages of the weight saving lightweight guardrail:
For proactive safety reasons, the tube has been shaped in such a way that (a) the TÜV guardrail standards have been amply met and that (b) no steel floors can be mounted on it.
