Non heat conductive
BLH Stop Drop™ Safety Barricading is thoroughly tested by external parties to ensure the products meet required standards. The third-party testing means you can rely on the quality of the unique Safety Barricading.
BLH Safety Solution’s™ advanced polymer formula is well suited to harsh outdoor environments. You can be certain that our products will stand the test of time.
BLH Safety Solution’s™ advanced polymer composition has been externally tested and certified as chemical resistant.
Each component was subjected to immersion in both Sulphuric Acid and Shellsol Kerosene for 200 hours and exhibited less than 0.025% change in mass. BLH Products won’t rust, and they are not affected by processing water with high salinity or marine environments.
BLH Stop Drop™ Safety Barricading has been tested in accordance with AS1530.2 and AS1530.3, resulting in the following parameters:
|Description||Celsius Measurement||Fahrenheit Measurement|
|Softening Point||75 degrees||167 degrees|
|Melting Point||165 degrees||329 degrees|
|Flash Ignition Point||230 degrees||446 degrees|
|Self Ignition Point||286 degrees||546 degrees|
Wind Tunnel Testing
The BLH STOP DROP™ SAFETY BARRICADING SYSTEM has undergone rigorous external wind tunnel testing to measure drag and Cfig (aerodynamic shape factor) values of the barrier attached to a standard handrail system, as well as the strength of the panel connection clips and force exerted on the platform to which they are attached in wind conditions between 0 and 50 m/s (180 km/h).
This will test the product for wind loading and suitability for use on structures.
BLH SAFETY SOLUTIONS™ worked closely with BMT WBM and Monash University, Melbourne, to test the wind loading of the BLH STOP DROP™ SAFETY BARRICADING SYSTEM. Through this testing, it was shown that the BLH STOP DROP™ SAFETY BARRICADING SYSTEM complies to AS1170.2 and is able to withstand 1.8kPa of pressure, which translates to 180 kph winds / 110 mph winds.
Az for wind normal to the mesh = 0.841m2 (0.995m x 0.845m single Mesh Panel size)
Based on the test data obtained the aerodynamic shape factor for the Mesh Panel only is:
Based on test data obtained the aerodynamic shape factor for the Standard Meterage Assembly (which includes a Mesh Panel and Vertical Joiner, attached to a handrail with Standard Clip Assemblies) is:
The BLH STOP DROP™ SAFETY BARRICADING SYSTEM has minimal impact on structural wind loading and low impacts on structural integrity.
The following video shows 3 panels of Stop Drop™ Barricading installed on a test rig of Australian Standard hand railing in 180km per hour wind. The platform rotates 360 degrees to test the barricading from all sides.
You shall observe, despite the high wind, there is little more than mild deflection of the barricading. You will note that the tamper proofing security pins have been left out of some of the clips on the second and third panel.
This shows that the strength of our Stop Drop Barricading comes from the clips and not the tamper proofing security pins.
