Barriers Introduction

Go Kart Safety Barriers

The Predator Products Barriers come in individual piece and can be bought in multiples of 10 units at a time. Each unit is 1280mm in length, 565 mm in height and 335mm in width. The HPE material of which they are manufactured is the same hi-tech plastic that is to day used in truck barriers and mining applications and it is tough, light and durable in material in order to meet the hard conditions that motor sport can dish up to a barrier.

All barriers have a dry weight of 16.5kg and have an internal storage capacity to allow sand or water ballast to be added should your track safety engineer deem it necessary to do so in certain applications.

When maintained according to the manufactures specifications these barriers will give many years of safe and reliable service whilst lowering the amount of time your staff spend straightening crooked tyre walls. The smooth plastic finish works very well to deflect rouge karts and the snake effect of the barriers on impacts up to 25 degrees will divert the kart back towards the circuit in a safe and manageable way so that the driver has little or no effect from the impact.

Application

Go Kart Safety Barriers

The barriers may be used as a free standing perimeter fence, Pit Wall or as a impact Safety barrier and is suitable for use on indoor and outdoor circuits. The Use of the latest 2014 technoglobbal HDP materials gives the Predator Products barriers remarkably durable construction and offers years of good product service.

They have been tested to resist a 90 degree impact and speeds of up to 45kpm and test results have shown that when used correctly the barriers bring the kart to a safe stop with in an acceptable deceleration rate that has no adverse effects on the driver or the karts when used in accordance with the Australian Standard.

The Predator Products Barriers have been designed to meet the Australian Standard 3533.4 for Kart Hire and are recommended to be used with no additional ballast if being used for the deflection of karts along straights and high speed areas. However it is advisable to refer to your track safety engineer should you feel that Ballast may need to be added for competition use?

No barriers are not designed to be fixed hard against the concrete walls in high impact areas and the advice of your track engineer should be sought if the working distance of these barrier is less than 2 meters.

Do not leave the end of the barriers exposed to a direct impact point on your track. E.G. never leave an end of a plastic barrier wall in a position where a vehicle can travel off the track and strike the end of the barrier. Always protect the end of the barrier with shock absorbing materials and always turn the barrier away from the track so as to offer a smooth side of a barrier in the event of an impact.

The use of weighting at either end is not required as the barriers are designed to wrap past the points of impact and should be protected by tyres or similar sort absorbing materials on all exposed ends

NOTE: Barriers that are cracked or damaged in any way must not be used at any time
