Alti-Shield MAX
  • Alti-Shield MAX has been developed to provide a safe solution to prevent impalement from falling from height for construction workers on site
  • The strip is placed centrally on the reinforcement bar to protect the workforce from stab and impalement injuries
  • Alti-Shield MAX has been tested by Lloyds British Testing to determine its effectiveness when a 100kg test dummy was dropped from a height of 3m
  • A range of 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 20mm, 32mm and 40mm reinforcement bars were tested with even spacings to offer the greatest cover for the surface of the Alti-Shield MAX
  • In some cases the protector received localised damage and in one test of 8mm bar the plastic cover of the protective strip was penetrated due to movement within the protector
  • In all cases the metal strip remained intact
  • SAFETY TESTED – 100kg FROM A HEIGHT OF 3 MTR
