Hangars and aircraft assembly sites are some of the most dangerous places in the world due to the complexity with some of the parts and the risks involved in accessing them. Only qualified engineers and technicians are usually allowed near the parts and even then they have to take care and wear appropriate safety equipment and follow precautions.
If you have guests at your facility then you will need to take additional steps to ensure their safety. You can use a combination of permanent safety fencing as well as temporary barricades to cordon off and restrict certain areas to be observation only and no access.
Safety Fencing around Engines and Testing Components
At an aircraft research facility, it is important to install safety fencing around engines and other components that are being tested. You will have to make sure that nobody is able to gain access to these areas during operation and that even when machinery is not in use, special access cards and key codes are required to get through the fencing.
For simple safety reasons, you can also install a series of barricades and safety barriers. This type of set up will prevent any accidents and injuries due to vehicles that are moving in the wrong place.
Setting Up Guidelines on the Floor
Usually, in an industrial research and development facility such as an aircraft hangar, you will also need to have guidelines painted on the floor directing vehicles and pedestrians to the right area. This saves time on directions and also makes it more efficient for people to follow a correct safety procedure in case of an evacuation or similar incident.
Safety fencing and barricades are some of the most necessary and common features found in aircraft facilities all over World.
