Energy Absorbing Steel Guarding Systems

Patented CoreFlex® guarding uses an innovative impact absorption system that protects not only your equipment and personnel but significantly reduces damage to your concrete floor and foundation.

During a collision, the kinetic energy of the impact is gradually absorbed by an elastomer in the base of the assembly. The post can tilt approximately 15° as it absorbs energy and softens the impact.

After the impact, the post returns upright. Your guard remains intact and ready to perform again.

Due to the CoreFlex energy absorbing characteristics, it also reduces the risk of a forklift load toppling over when compared to a static, immovable bollard.
