The process of finding the right barrier combinations for your site and installing them can be a complex and time-consuming process. We have assisted many well-known New Zealand businesses with their barrier requirements.

Working Together

We have a team of trained barrier professionals who will guide you through your project from planning to installation, making the process simple and error free. We work with many industries and understand not only the hazards that exist in your workplace, but how to navigate those hazards safely with the appropriate barrier options.

Our consultants will analyse the loaded weight and speed of vehicles operating in the area. They will assess what level of impact protection is required and advise the most appropriate solution to protect your people, vehicles, machinery and assets.

When you purchase your barrier through us, a dedicated Project Manager will be assigned to your project from the scoping phase. They will know the details of your project, having been involved in the design process. We will work to resolve any issue and keep you informed of progress.

The Project Manager will also oversee the installation team and ensure that the project stays on track. We pride ourselves on clear communication, and strive to make your project a pleasurable and easy experience.

Unbiased Recommendations

We stock three discrete barrier product lines which are designed for different areas and impacts.

  • Flexible plastic barrier
  • Steel guard rail
  • Steel pipe rail

We recommend the best value product combination to achieve a result which is safe, provides optimal traffic management and is within your budget.

Network of Installers

We have experienced installers throughout New Zealand who have worked with some of New Zealand’s largest companies and can assist with installation projects of any size.

Your Project Manager will manage the installers and work closely with you to ensure a fuss-free installation. We work hard to ensure that our installers are fully trained on product and installation procedures, and we can also help your team to do the install in-house. Our modular product lines are easy to install and come with the necessary spacers, fixings, angled posts, and other accessories necessary for non-standard configurations.

Safety

Our project personnel are trained on safety requirements for working at clients’ sites. Should your company have safety checklists and induction processes in place then we are more than happy to complete these prior to entering your site.

Scoping and Installation Process 

1. First conversation

We discuss your project goals, and the existing hazards or traffic flow throughout your work site. We provide some preliminary documentation at this stage on our products and schedule a site visit.

2. Site Visit

Our Sales Consultants will suggest configuration changes required to protect your people and assets while improving traffic management. We will work to refine your existing traffic management plan or create a new plan with optimal traffic flow. We will advise on what level of impact protection you need in each area of your work site.

3. Barrier Design Document

Our consultants return to Astrolift with the measurements and work with our designer on project scope and design. At this stage, we will firm up the requirements and get your feedback with a view to preparing an accurate proposal for you.

4. Proposal and Presentation

We provide a proposal for the barrier installation at your site, including schedule, pricing and design documentation where required.

5. Project team assignment

A dedicated installation team is assigned to your project. They will have knowledge in the products to be installed for your project. The Project Manager is involved from the scoping phase to ensure that the project is hassle free.

6. Safety checks and site inductions

Our project personnel will complete any safety check documents required, and go through your company’s safety induction process if required.

7. Installation

The project team will work with your team onsite to install the barrier. Lengths are pre-cut so that the installation process is quick and relatively simple. If your team is doing the install in-house, our Project Manager is on hand to give advice and respond to issues.

8. Post-Installation Inspection

The relevant people from your company will complete a walk through and sign off on the job. Any issues will be dealt with quickly and efficiently.
