How Kite can improve your warehouse safety

Kite Group offer a range of products in our Flexible Protection System (FPS) range that can improve safety in warehouses. The FPS Range uses unique triple shock-absorbing techno polymer grades to protect infrastructure from vehicular impacts. From protecting workers to safeguarding products and structures, Kite can directly help your warehouse become a safer workplace.


Steel guardrail

For warehouses with a mezzanine floor, installing a secure handrail system is a must. Kite’s fully modular system can be tailored to any warehouse design, combining Galvanised Tube, Standards and a variety of Clamps to affix your handrailing securely. Kite’s handrailing products come in a choice of four sizes that can cater to your warehouse needs, in Galvanised or Self-Colour steel. There is also an option to Powdercoat the component parts to suit the aesthetics of your warehouse – speak to our team about these options today.

FPS Pedestrian Barriers

Kite’s range of FPS Pedestrian Safety Barriers serve to separate pedestrian routes from pallet truck and forklift routes. These barriers can be customised to suit the size and layout of your warehouse, with options to alter height also available through fixings. The PED range is ideal for protection from light loads and for demarcating different areas of the warehouse through their bright, highly visible colour.



Link Barriers

In contrast the Kite’s Pedestrian Barriers, Kite’s Link Traffic Barriers are designed to provide maximum impact resistance from vehicles. They are ideal for areas of busy traffic and heavier forklift loads. Like the Pedestrian Barrier, it comes in a highly visible colour and are height adjustable to suit your warehouse needs.



Rack Protection

Kite’s FPS Racking Protection features products such as Upright Protection, Rack Corner, Rack-end Protection, Fence Protection and B-Flex Barrier to safeguard your warehouse from collisions. The technopolymer is designed to absorb shock and deflect impact away from the racking or floor anchorage. Damage to racking protection can be exceedingly dangerous for workers and catastrophic for products stored on these shelves. Rack protection may be the most worthwhile investment for your warehouse’s safety.



Column, Kerb and Corner Protection

Kite’s range of FPS Wall Protection, Kerb Protection and Corner Protection are designed to protect these vulnerable areas of the building from impacts and reduce the need for maintenance. All products in this range are designed with high visibility, in order to reduce the risk of collision in the first instance. If impact does occur, the highly resistant techno polymer compound provides maximum protection to these susceptible areas.



Cable cover

An often-overlooked aspect of warehouse safety is protecting exposed cables, which can cause trips and falls if left unchecked. Kite’s highly visible, easy-to-install Cable Cover helps to both highlight and safeguard ground cables in order to eliminate this risk.



Bollards

Warehouse openings and other protruding infrastructure can be protected from forklifts and other moving vehicles by Kite’s FPS Bollards. These slimline bollards are highly visible in the workplace and provide excellent impact resistance. They can also be used to indicate restricted areas for pedestrians.



FPS gates

To complement the installation of Kite’s FPS Pedestrian Barriers, the Pedestrian Safety Gates are a must-have. Both the FPS Safety Swing Gate and the FPS Safety Lift Gate are designed with the same technopolymer as the rest of the FPS range and designate access/exit points in a warehouse for operatives or visitors. Both kinds of gate feature strong hinges, which guarantee flawless long-term use and increase the return on investment of installation.

Overall, Kite have several products designed to enhance warehouse safety. Speak to our Sales Team today to find out more our unique FPS range and how it can suit your project.
