Making sites safer

Our safety products were originally invented for our own site operators to use – to increase efficiency and to get projects done on budget – but most have been created in response to accidents or near misses. They’re all now available on the open market.

HS2, Tideway, Kier, BAM, Balfour Beatty, Costain, Interserve, Willmott Dixon, Severfield, B & K Structures, FP McCann and Bison Precast are just some of the industry names using them.

Tried and tested

Each invention is tried and tested – and comes with certifiable paperwork. In fact, all our safety products are manufactured in the UK, apart from our outrigger system (ALIMATS®). But even these are plated and painted here. This means a lot to some of our clients – especially those who place significant value on cutting their carbon footprint.

Chris really cares about people and develops inventions to keep them safe. In fact, there are more planned products in the pipeline. We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved. We’re proud too, that our products have received recognition across the industry, having won multiple awards.

“The SLAPP Clamp works brilliantly for us as our crane is fitted with a specialist finger grab for offloading flooring beams; we needed something to offload pallets without dropping the grab off. There’s nothing else like it on the market.”
