Incorporating reflective strands woven directly into the webbing of the barrier, NightView is designed to highlight potential hazardous areas to night shift staff, or for those working in environments with restricted light such as construction professionals or miners. It can also be used to mark hazards or non-accessible areas to members of the public.
NightView can be used alongside the group’s Tensabarrier product range and will be available for use across a number of sectors, including aviation, construction, transport, engineering, events and the emergency services.
Brett Hellyer, business development manager at Tensator, commented: “Over 600,000 non-fatal injuries were reported by workers in 2014/15, with the risk of being involved in an accident rising by 36% during the hours of darkness. The chance of a slip, trip or fall or being struck by an object in the workplace will always be present, but technology such as NightView could have a significant impact and help reduce the risk of accidents and potential injuries. We work alongside some of the biggest businesses and transport hubs across the world to help them control the flow of employees, customers and passengers. Above all else, we know that the most important part of that journey is safety.”
