Frangible Safety Posts Ltd was established in October 2009 by Gerry Boyce (Founder of EPL Composite Solutions) Niall Mackay and Craig Pyser.
FSP purchased the intellectual property for the Frangible Post System from 3M in January 2010 and after considerable investment to expand the range are currently selling 140mm 168mm and 219mm passively safe posts into the market. FSP is focused on delivering first class products with first class service to our customers.
FSP has built a strong supply chain and is expanding to service international markets. In the UK and Ireland ASD metal services have been appointed as their exclusive distributor.
It has been estimated that vehicle collisions with rigid roadside features such as sign posts cause over 15% of all road fatalities.
These objects cannot always be removed and this is where the fully-tested and passively safe Frangible Safety Post System can help save lives: it gives way when struck. The Frangible Safety Post has a unique patent protected design which combines the strength to support large signs in strong winds with the ability to shatter collapsing in a predictable and safe manner if struck by an errant vehicle. This passively safe sign post complies with BS EN 12767 and BS EN 12899-1.
