Who are the Top 5 Barrier suppliers in the UK?


Every year at Clarity Visual Management, we meet up with hundreds of factory managers throughout the UK and often discuss their flexible polymer barrier requirements. Because so many people know our thoughts and feelings about everything to do with flexible industrial barriers, they often ask us about the other barrier manufacturers and suppliers in the area.

We never want to shy away from being blatantly honest in regards to our competition and we want our customers to be as informed as possible.

Here are some of the companies that have a good reputation for flexible industrial polymer barriers in the UK:

So, there are 5 companies to consider if you're getting quotes for your UK industrial barrier installation project.


How do I choose which barrier supplier is best for me?

In order to choose which barrier supplier to work with, you need to know what barrier requirements you have. Read this article about how to choose the right polymer barrier here.

If you know what barrier you need or you know what specific requirements you have for your barriers, you could start by getting in touch with a few of the companies above to see which products they would recommend. You will likely find that you are given product recommendations that look slightly different in colour and size depending on where you got the quotation from. Some companies will even give you products with different impact resistance based on what you have told them.

If you want a product that is strong enough to withstand the impacts you require, work out what impact resistance you need using our calculator here, and ask for this impact resistance when you enquire about the barriers for your factory.
