PVC Impactables VS Steel Barrier: The Verdict


Every Industry has an obligation to protect their most important assets; their people, products, and equipment. The Food Industry however, more so than any other industry, requires strict compliance with hygiene control standards at the same time and thus their protective solutions must meet both requirements. There’s only one solution. Ulti PVC Impactables.

In the Food Industry, it is essential to pay particular attention to the protection of refrigerated rooms and equipment that, if damaged, could lead to the deterioration and damage of the products stored within, and similarly, it is vital that the people working in these facilities are also protected. Guardrails and protective barriers guarantee maximum versatility and flexibility, for complete protection of walls, conveyors and machinery.

So why should you care?

You may be asking yourself what’s so fantastic about these barriers compared to other options on the market. It’s simple.

Shock Absorbant & Flexible Ulti Impactables absorb shock within the unit itself – the incredible flexibility of the piece means that once it has been hit, it will spring back into shape.

It also means that individual pieces, if impacted, will not tear the fixing out of the floor, unlike steel barriers. If you are anything like most of our clients, your floor is one of your most important investments, why would you risk damage to it?


Because Ulti Impactables spring back, clean up so easily and are modular, this system has a very long life and an excellent return on investment. If one bit becomes unusable, it is a simple exercise to swap out that piece whilst maintaining the integrity of your system. Because there is no shearing off or wear, they remain useful in all sorts of facilities with no danger of contamination.

Safe & Hygienic

Ulti Impactables are manufactured in a non-porous material that is both easy to clean and prevents the creation of moulds and/or microorganisms. This is especially important in high hygiene facilities as steel might flake or become worn and jagged, but our PVC Impactables remain immaculate and in one piece. In addition, they can be installed with hidden fixings and are also atoxic, meaning they are resistant to saline solutions, alcohol, chemicals and acid, and are water and moisture resistant!
GreenFewer materials plus a long economic life means that Ulti Impactables will save not only people and machinery – it’s also very good for the planet, being made from 100% recyclable materials.

Easy & Quick Installation

The Ulti Impactable modular design makes it easy to install with very little downtime in your environment. Simple to do yourself, or rely on the experts. They are also easy to re-configure on your own as your needs change, can be extended, relocated or additional pieces can be added

Fire Resistant

Unlike other barriers on the market, Ulti Impactables have a rating of “Fire Class VO, self-extinguishing, non-flame spread material.”
