    The Temporary Barricade System, built by Integrated Product Design (IPD) of Lafayette, La., and sold by Fire & Safety Specialists, is designed to temporarily replace damaged or missing handrails so work may continue on offshore platforms with virtually no downtime. The system is a pre-fabricated solution that requires no welding and replaces the practice of fashioning a temporary blockade with scrap metal bars. The barricade can span open holes, hazards, stairways and missing handrail sections-even on the Plus 10 Deck-reducing the chance of injuries or infractions. The system consists of nylon straps tethered across aluminum posts, which have endured horizontal deflection testing to 980 lb. Each kit contains four free-standing units that expand to 10 ft, providing 40 linear ft of protection. When not in use, the barricade stores compactly in its own carrying case that can be transported by helicopter or stored under a bunk.
