Skipper™ the award-winning manufacturers of the retractable safety barrier system range has launched a new safety barrier unit and range of accessories for the facilities management sector, to make it quick and easy to create safety cordons in internal environments.
The Skipper versatile barrier XS unit has all the great versatility of the standard Skipper unit, but is for use without cones or posts, making it ideal for use inside any building. It has the same 9 metres of retractable tape, as well as new connector points for affixing to its own unique range of Skipper accessories.
The Skipper XS barrier unit has new connector points for affixing to its own unique range of accessories including:
Skipper XS suction pad holder/receiver – Easily connect to high gloss surfaces and glass.
The suction pad holder/receiver is designed for use with the Skipper XS unit (although it can be used as a standard tape receiver). The suction pad can either hold the Skipper XS unit in place, or be used to receive the tape end clip.
Skipper XS magnetic and cord strap holder/receiver – A receiver clip with added versatility.
The cord and magnetic receiver is designed for use with the Skipper XS (although it can be used as a standard tape receiver). As well as being able to attach to magnetic surfaces, it can also be tied to pillars using the provided ‘tourniquet’ cord. Once in place the receiver can then either hold the Skipper XS unit in place or be used to receive the tape end clip.
Skipper XS clamp holder/receiver – Robust connectivity from any angle.
The clamp holder/receiver is used to attach the Skipper XS unit and/or tape end to angular surfaces such as door frames, work surfaces and racking. It can be clamped in place and tightened by turning the screw. The clamp holder/receiver can be positioned either horizontally or vertically depending on the desired application.
Skipper™ Managing Director Alan Bentley said:
