Team Systems, range of guard rails and bollards help to protect your stock and staff from accidental injury or damage. They are ideal as safety barriers to close in machinery and to divide trucks, forklifts from safety areas or potential risk areas.
Wire rope safety fences
Guardrail Installations is an expert in the installation and maintenance of wire rope safety fences. The unique woven rope system grips the posts – the bigger the impact, the harder the ropes grip the posts and control the deflection, regardless of whether the installation is 100m or 10,000m between anchors.
In case of a vehicle accident only the damaged posts need to be replaced. The steel posts are simply inserted into a socketed concrete footing. This means that the repairs after a typical impact involving six posts can be completed in less than 30 minutes.
Wire rope safety fencing is an unrivalled safety barrier system used on Australian roads, highways and motorways due to its unique features:
- Quick and easy to install requiring no heavy equipment or specialised tools
- Very low repair and maintenance costs. Repair is quick, simple and carried out manually without the need for mechanical equipment
- Unrivalled safety record with no deaths in 30 years in the 30 countries that it has been installed
- All metal components are galvanised and are highly resistant to corrosion
Guard railing machines
Guardrail Installations operates Turchi 260S guard rail machines imported from Europe. All machines have been fitted with auger drives and rock drills, to allow installation to be carried out in various difficult ground conditions, including rock.
The rock drill is able to drill a 150mm hole through solid rock, and up to 2m in depth. The drill also cuts through cement treated pavement as well as asphalt layers up to 250mm thick without the need for pre-boring.
The new Turchi 260S installs guardrail posts to exactly the correct height and alignment, ready for the rails to be attached. It also greatly reduces the risk of damaging buried telecom lines and other services.
It's quick, the steel posts are more durable than wood and are recyclable, and the whole operation takes up a much smaller footprint on the road, leaving more room on the shoulder.
