The Skipper versatile barrier XS unit has all the versatility of the standard Skipper unit, but is for use without cones or posts, making it ideal for use inside any building, according to the company. The XS model has 9 meters of retractable tape, as well as connector points for affixing to its own unique range of Skipper accessories.
Accessories include the Skipper XS suction pad holder/receiver that easily connects to high gloss surfaces and glass. The suction pad can either hold the Skipper XS unit in place, or be used to receive the tape end clip. The Skipper XS magnetic and cord strap holder/receiver is a receiver clip with added versatility. As well as being able to attach to magnetic surfaces, it can also be tied to pillars using the provided “tourniquet” cord. Once in place the receiver can then either hold the Skipper XS unit in place or be used to receive the tape end clip.
The Skipper XS clamp holder/receiver is used to attach the Skipper XS unit and/or tape end to angular surfaces such as door frames, work surfaces and racking. It can be clamped in place and tightened by turning the screw. The clamp holder/receiver can be positioned either horizontally or vertically depending on the desired application.
Alan Bentley, Skipper managing director, said, “The new Skipper XS range has all the versatility of our standard award-winning Skipper range and makes it safe, quick and easy to cordon off internal areas for essential building maintenance and management. We take an innovative approach to our customer’s problems and have developed this range to suit the facilities management and building services sector. We understand that essential facilities maintenance works must take place whilst buildings are occupied – the XS range will allow that work to take place in a safe environment.”
