Four-Sided Protection Premium Series

FSP Four Sided Safety Covers

The FSP Premium Four Sided Austral Safety Cover is the ultimate in void protection; with its unique folding gate system the operator is never needlessly exposed to the open void.

The height of the gates is designed compliant to a handrail height requirement of 900mm. For the smaller sized covers, a telescopic rail system is utilised to provide a rail at a safe working height.

The FSP Series Safety Grate design allows the access gates to operate independently to enable access to one pump at a time whilst still maintaining a four-sided barricade.

All standard size FSP Premium Series Safety Covers are rated to class B loading.
