Rail Safety Systems BV is the Patent Holder and manufacturer in the Netherlands and Innovative Railway Safety Ltd the UK distributor.
The innovative, and radically different RSS B.V. Magnetically Attached Safety Barrier offers unprecedented physical protection and health benefits for the workforce.
With no requirement to remove ballast in the 4’00” to erect a safety barrier; disturbing the Silica dust and other pathogens such as Weil’s disease/Leptospirosis in the ballast. Using a uniquely designed ‘rare-earth’ magnet that is extremely strong and never loses its power, it simply attaches to the web of the rail. Uniquely, it currently complies with the latest European Standards, is approved by Network Rail: PA05 05085 and many contractors for use on the UK/European infrastructure.
Additional benefits accrue, in that major savings can be effected in both working time and possession costs - under a SSOW, some 102m of barrier can be erected in 15mins by 5 operatives.
