Rapid EPS employs over forty people at our 32,000 sq ft manufacturing and training facility in Leeds, which is easily accessible from the M62 motorway.

Rapid EPS has many years of engineering experience dating back to 1968. In 2004 the company became involved in the manufacture of engineered solutions for the protection against falls from height.

Company founders David Brine and Peter Hewson combined their expertise to explore the possibility of designing a telescopic edge protection system known as Rapid Post.

The innovative Rapid Post, with its ease of installation and overall performance, has become the default solution for many companies around the world.

The design team at RAPID EPS have continued to innovate, creating a whole edge protection system offering fast, innovative and safe protection against the construction industry’s biggest killer: falls from height.

Key developments include RAPID EPS systems suitable for concrete, steel and timber frame builds, as well as temporary edge protection of stairwells, trailer and trenching / shorting systems, all with RAPID’s key benefit of fast and easy installation.

Edge Protection Barriers Installed Safely at Ground Level

One of the key benefits of RAPID’s system is that (where site conditions allow) barriers can be installed safely at ground level, thus reducing the risks of work at height, as that edge protection is immediately in place. This process requires no secondary fix: the standard edge protection system is both robust and versatile enough for complete confidence when lifting and landing at height.


Edge Protection that Meets and Exceed Global Safety Standards for Working at Height

The rapid erection of the system comes hand in hand with exceptional safety. The system is fully compliant with all leading global safety standards: BS EN 13374.2013 for Class A and B Protection, OSHA 1926.502, ONTARIO Regulation 213/91 and AS/NZS 4994.1:2009.
