SafeEdge

SafeEdge from Rustibus is a new and innovative system that provides safety for the crew and equipment when working around open manholes. This product is specifically designed to prevent injuries associated with open manholes onboard vessels or offshore platforms.

Current manhole practices are often unsafe, impractical and time-consuming, and a lack of best practices is unsustainable. There have been several incidents that have caused bodily harm and injuries due to unmarked or poorly secured manholes. Accidents typically occur following unsafe practices or failure to follow correct safety procedures, and according to Rustibus, they can be prevented.

The SafeEdge is created with high visibility. A fluorescent orange base creates a barrier that prevents crew and loose objects from accidently falling or stumbling into an open manhole. The three-tier lid is designed with highly visible reflective warning colors and supports a maximum load of 450lbs. This three-tier design also provides room for ventilation equipment and various utilities to go into the manhole, without compromising the safety or work.

The installation of SafeEdge is easy and quick compared to current methods and it has a total weight of 18lbs, Rustibus said. SafeEdge is a risk-free safety product to have on board any vessel or offshore platform and is designed to fit the most common size of international standard manholes (ISO 5894).

SafeEdge will be made in the United States of America and not imported from other countries, proving Rustibus USA’s support for the local manufacturing.

Rustibus explained that SafeEdge is the first of its kind that offers a simple solution to a problem that has plagued the marine industry for many years, with no effective solution. SafeEdge joins Rustibus’existing line of marine safety and maintenance equipment.
