About Rapid Edge Protection Systems
The innovative concept behind the Rapid Edge Protection System came about when company founders David Brine and Peter Hewson used their combined expertise to explore the possibility of constructing an edge protection system with a telescopic post. This conceptual leap forward has been the key to this system’s major advantage:
Quick installation without the need for tools.
The Rapid Edge Protection System has rapidly become a default system for many major companies around the world.
