Hose and cord reel specialist ReCoila has designed a specialised reel that can alternate between being a buffer and a thoroughfare.
Many workplaces have areas that are designated for both thoroughfare and restricted access at different times.
An example would be a warehouse roller door – deliveries need to come in and stock needs to go out, but customers and visitors need to be made aware of ‘No Entry’ rules.
ReCoila manufactures its BAR Series reels that provide a solution for areas that are designated as both thoroughfare and restricted access. The BAR Series is suitable for use by general industrial and engineering companies, warehouses, transport and logistics operators, public works and outdoors, the hospitality and catering sector as well as in mine and quarry operations.
This wall mounted safety barrier reel, fitted with 15 metres of retractable barrier tape or chain, is highly visible in orange or yellow respectively. When mounted on the side wall of a doorway or access way, the BAR Series reels allow staff to easily unwind up to 15 metres of chain or tape and attach it to a hook on the opposite wall. The barrier is quickly and easily retracted when pedestrian or vehicular access is necessary.
The BAR Series reels have a durable impact and UV resistant outer case coupled with a heavy duty spring mechanism, making them ideal for harsh industrial environments.
Traditionally for this type of application, businesses have used traffic cones, bollards, wall-mounted signage, free standing signs or a combination of these methods to deter customers, visitors or unauthorised staff. But such outdated solutions are difficult to manage, can be so heavy as to cause injury and can sometimes even go unnoticed by those very people that are meant to be deterred by them.
When access needs to be made available multiple times a day, bollards and similar barrier methods become cumbersome to move and are sometimes not put back in place by staff, and in the case with wall signage, are occasionally not seen at all.
ReCoila has been manufacturing hose reels for over 30 years and is well established as an Australian market leader producing a vast range of quality hose and cord reels for a wide range of applications.
