GS6 Height Restriction Goal Post Barrier - Telescopic With Bunting

This GS6 Height Restriction Barrier system is a lightweight, cost effective solution to ensure full GS6 compliance. This system is fully HSE GS6 compliant and is designed to be set up bridging the access road before and after the obstacle that is being avoided.

Overhead goalposts are now required by law on most construction sites, where overhead obstacles are present. They are used to ensure that adequate warning is given to drivers about overhead obstacles such as power lines and structures.

The kits have many names including GS6 Kits, Overhead Goalposts and overhead cable protection posts. These kits are often used around live electrical cables. For this reason, the poles are made from fibreglass and are completely non-conductive.

The basic kit includes two bases weighing 13.5kg each, 2 telescopic non-conductive poles and 25m of bunting. There is also the option to have Metro Block water filled bases for extra stability or to have a rigid telescopic crossbar rather than the standard bunting.
