Provides protection to sloping surfaces generally from 10o to 30o and to 60o for 2m slopes. Class B provides resistance to both static and low dynamic loads and is based on the requirements to support a person leaning against, walking beside, and possibly stumbling against the edge protection. It also protects a person who could slide down a steep sloping surface towards the edge protection.
Provides protection to steeply sloping surfaces from 30o up to 45o and up to 60o for 5m slopes. It provides resistance to high dynamic loads only and is based on the requirements to contain a person sliding down a steeply sloping surface.
Our temporary edge protection systems have been designed and tested to Class A, B and C of the European Standard BS EN 13374:2013+A1:2018. Design packages compliant with BS 5975:2018 can also be provided. Bespoke systems and demarcation can be provided for non-standard structures.
