A Freestanding Temporary Edge Protection System is an effective method of collective protection when it is impractical to anchor into or attach adjustable clamps onto the structure.

The J-SAFE Freestanding Temporary Edge Protection System comprises only three components that is EN 13374 Class A compliant when placed on a concrete surface. Common applications are precast floor phase-breaks, or to protect the perimeter of excavations. It can also be utilised on gabions to protect highway fence installers, but requires attachment into the gabbing tie-wire.

The system is installed at maximum 2000mm centres, with the benefit of adaptability to the shape of the structure because the barriers overlap anywhere along their length.

J-SAFE barriers are manufactured from steel mesh that prevents falling debris or objects and are the equivalent of twin guardrails and toe board in one component. The J-SAFE Temporary Edge Protection System utilising the Freestanding Base as the supporting assembly forms a robust continuous mesh screen around the working area protecting the workforce from the risk of fall from height.
