Guarding manholes

Also known as a manhole safety barrier, the SafeGate barrier is designed for use around temporary excavations – and is commonly used in both the communications and the telecoms industry.

Portable and lightweight

The SafeGate Barrier is small enough to fit in the back of a van, which is ideal for 1-person worksites. This plastic gate barrier is very lightweight and can be erected in seconds – meaning it’s perfect for fast response solutions.

NEW SafeBase

Add the new SafeBase to your SafeGate for total stability, with each base weighing 2.6kg. The SafeGate passes wind loading category A (winds of 59 mph) when 1 SafeBase is applied to each SafeGate in a 4 Way square configuration.

Various configurations

The 3 Way SafeGate and 4 Way SafeGate are also commonly used for manhole repairs, cable laying and temporary access restrictions.
