Utility Barrier - 750mm or 1 metre

The Utility Barrier is the ideal manhole barrier for almost all pedestrian manhole applications. A compact footprint for storage and transport, this has improved stability over other competitors due to its unique double clip design.

The utility barrier has been officially approved for use by Openreach, a BT Business Group. Available in two sizes, 750mm and 1 metre per gate, it is suited to a wide range of applications - the 1-metre gate being particularly popular.

Although we frequently refer to this barrier as a manhole barrier it is actually suitable for many other applications. The Melba Utility Barrier can be used to cordon off areas during works or keep pedestrians away from telecom junction boxes. Whilst cleaning operations are in progress that barrier can be deployed to block isles in supermarkets and other retail locations.
