Unique Features of the RAPID EPS system

- No tools or drilling required
- No cracking of concrete

- Significant savings in time and labour
- And that was just the first innovation from this company
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 Exceeds 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.
