Compression Post Edge Protection

Compression Post Edge Protection

The compression post is a collective fall protection device, that is used for securing edges between concrete slabs and other situations on construction sites. The system can be used in conjunction with edge protection barriers for full coverage. The toeboard of the mesh barrier prevents debris and material from entering or leaving the floor.


  • Not anchored or bolted — just relies on friction or compression fixings between the floor and the soffit.
  • Fast Installation & Labor Saving — Extending the inner pipe to the ceiling and activating the compression function with a foot pedal makes the compression post easy to install.

3D DISPLAY OF Compression post Edge protection

The compression post edge protection system offers a smart solution for barrier height adjustment when used in combination with the barrier. It is used to provide similar edge protection to the anchored or bolted methods, but employing a different, faster, fixing principle. They are mainly applied to concrete frame applications, but fixing to some steel frames can also be provided.

APAC compression post is designed to be a quick height adjustment from 2.4m (8ft) up to 3.5m (11.5 ft)maximum, the integrated pressing device makes it easy compression adjustment. When installing the compression post, a level indicator aids precise vertical rigging.

All APAC compression post conforms to EN 13374, COHS,  OSHA, and ANSI.
