Overhead Guardian Goal Posts Each Guardian Goal Posts set comprises of:

  • 2 lightweight telescopic pole units which extend up to 6m in length
  • 2 galvanised and weighted steel bases – each weighing 25 kg
  • 1 x 25m length of red and white warning bunting

These telescopic poles are manufactured from non-conductive Glass Reinforced Polyester Resin (GRP) and carry highly a visible red / white warning design. Bases can be used without ballast, although the bases include holes to allow screw-fixing for additional security. Safety and deployment A site-specific risk assessment will identify the optimum location for installation of PAL Hire’s Guardian Goal Posts. Posts should be positioned in compliance with the Health & Safety Executive’s GS6 “avoidance of danger from overhead electric power lines.” The tension of the bunting length will be an additional safety consideration, so an ample 25m of bunting supplied to suit most situations. For additional safety in night use, 24-volt lighting sets are available. Bases are fully tested to withstand winds of up to 11 km/hr without ballast. For windier conditions, additional weighting with sandbags is recommended and these can be easily incorporated to bases. Convenience and portability The Guardian Goal Post system is easy to transport around and between sites. The lightweight pole allows for quick installation by one person only and the telescopic design allows easy packing away and storage. All round site safety With the full 6m extension of the poles, PAL Hire’s Overhead Guardian Goal Post system offers full height clearance over carriageways and full compliance with GS6, to maximise site safety.
