Toe board protective barrier
Prevent dropped objects and secure walkways Toe board protective barrier
The CableSafe® toe board is a low protective barrier. The Toeboard or Kickplate protects openings on platforms when there is a risk of dropped objects and tools from height. The safety toeboard is easy to install with nuts and bolts. Installation is done without the need of hot work permits. The toe boards can protect any size opening, the more units to larger the opening. At any time the units can be increased. The boards are 4 x times faster to install over conventional steel toebards without hot work permit. The toeboard / kicklplate or toeplate warns for openings on the platform by its bright yellow color.
