Gala safety poles protective barrier

The Gala safety pole device is a safety sign and protective barrier that can be used to warn and restrict access to a particular area that could be potentially hazardous.The increase in demands being made by WHS to ensure greater workplace safety has created a demand for signs that act as protective barriers as well as providing a message. Compared to other safety signs such as an A-frame sign, the safety pole device is not as easily evaded as the only way past it is to remove it or crawl under it.

The device is suitable for applications such as toilets and washrooms that need regular cleaning yet can create a potential hazard for slips and falls during that wet cleaning operation. It consists of two tough, plastic telescopic arms that are kept extended to the maximum of 115 cm by way of a stainless steel spring and can be retracted against the spring to a minimum of 72 cm. With the average 80 cm doorway as an example, the arms are retracted to slightly less than 80 cm and then the device is placed in between the door frame uprights at about chest height. The two arms extend to the width of the doorway and the device remains jammed in the door frame. Once the danger has past (for example, the floor has now dried), the device can be removed.

A flat sign, which is imprinted with the words ‘closed for cleaning’, clearly hangs beneath the pole. Custom messages for the sign are available to order should the device be required for other types of applications. A typical message for the sign could be ‘do not enter’, which is use-neutral and does not refer to cleaning.
