Chain Barriers in the Workplace


A means of fencing off a temporary hazard is useful in any workplace. Whether it is needed for less than an hour to cordon off a slippery area after a spill, or longer to keep people away from an uneven floor until it can be repaired, chain posts come in handy time after time. When not required, chain post barriers are easily removed and take up very little storage space.

Chain posts have uses that go beyond just cordoning off a dangerous area, however. They can be used for crowd control or to protect vulnerable assets. Whatever your requirements, the chain posts at Seton are designed to provide an effective safety and security solution for years to come.

Post and Chain Barrier Components


As well as kits that offer everything needed to create a barrier in super quick time, our range also includes “a la carte” options to allow you to buy what you need now and extend the barrier when required.

Individual pieces include:
  • Chains

  • Bases, stands and posts

  • “S” rings

  • Reflective markers


Chains are constructed from durable materials such as Nylon and galvanised steel which will be more than able to withstand the rigors of daily industrial use. It is important to use chains specially manufactured for barriers. Standard chains will not be as easily seen as high visibility options and could cause accidents rather than prevent them.

Bases and posts are sturdy and not easily overturned. They can be supplied in a variety of materials suitable for both indoor and outdoor use in car parks, industrial warehouses and factories. Choose a standard or heavy duty model as appropriate for your applications.

Barrier Chains for Safety


For many companies, having the correct equipment in compliance with current UK and EU safety legislation can be a baffling business. However, chain posts are a very effective safety measure with a proven track record in keeping people safe. You can buy from Seton with confidence, knowing all of our security products comply with legislation.

To increase safety around temporary hazards, display hazard-warning signs.

We have an extensive range of floor stands that can be easily used in conjunction with chain posts to provide clear warnings about the hazards involved.

The sturdy and easily portable nature of chain posts will provide you with a barrier system that can be used as often as necessary, giving you peace of mind that you always have a system ready. Whether it is to protect assets or people, our chain posts provide a well-established protective measure, which can go a considerable way towards preventing accidents. For both employees and visitors to your company, well-made safety barriers such as chain posts provide the guidance necessary to ensure hazards and areas of restricted access are avoided and give a clear sign of how seriously you take their safety.

When might I need post and chain barrier fencing?

Chain posts are the perfect solution when a temporary hazard needs to be fenced off to ensure the safety of employees or the general public. Posts with chains are ideal for cordoning off anything from a small work area to a driving hazard such as a pothole. Chain posts can also be used to secure an area that has become dangerous because of weather conditions, such as ice and snow, or because of a chemical spill.

Do I always need additional signage to display with my chain posts?

Here at Seton, we have a variety of chain posts, many of which come in bright, bold colours designed to capture attention and make it very obvious that there is a hazard to be avoided. You can, however, greatly increase safety by also displaying a hazard warning stands or signs. This can alert people to the type of hazard involved and allow them to take further precautions in the area.
