Pedestrian Safety

For over 25 years, North American Safety Products has served commercial, industrial, and municipal clients with our innovative pedestrian safety solutions. Founder Marty Mobeck came up with our signature product, the Original Versa-Guard®, in 1995, and ever since, our in-house engineering team has been creating custom safety barriers for diverse environments.

We design and manufacture barriers, gating, and partition systems that meet industry safety regulations, your application’s exact specifications, and your timeline requirements while maintaining a high degree of product quality. Learn more about our pedestrian safety equipment to help find the right solution for your needs.

Our Pedestrian Safety Equipment

North American Safety Products provides customized safety solutions for virtually any pedestrian environment. Our vast product offerings include four types of equipment for versatile safety and security applications:

  • Versa-Guard®. Enclose and secure an area with our sturdy yet adaptable Versa-Guard®. This temporary barrier can effectively and easily meet on-site requirements by cordoning off a perimeter, subdividing large spaces, or handling even unique barrier needs ranging from office buildings to manufacturing facilities.
  • Rear-Guard®. Expandable and retractable machine guarding offers a high degree of employee protection behind press brakes and many other processing machines. Rear-Guard® reduces exposure to dangerous and potentially fatal work zones. You can use these expandable, retractable guards for applications where you must establish secure, safe, OSHA-regulated entrance, giving you floor-to-ceiling access without caging you inside using a wire mesh machine guard.
  • LoadDox-Guard®. Ensure safe pedestrian, driver, and fork-truck vehicle traffic in your shipping and receiving areas with LoadDox-Guard®, an expandable loading dock safety gate. This solution is easy to set up so you can clearly protect the most overlooked safety hazard areas for pedestrians and workers. LoadDox Guard® also offers ventilation, visibility, and security.
  • Outdoor System Protection. Like any other machinery or equipment within your facility, it’s important to safeguard your commercial HVAC system outdoors against damage or theft. Anti-vandalism and -theft cages protect commercial or residential units while maintaining a service-friendly feel for HVAC technicians.

We can help build a custom plan and modular configuration of pedestrian safety equipment for your facility or property when standard barriers won’t do the job.

Features and Benefits of Our Pedestrian Safety Barriers and Gating

At North American Safety Products, we set the standard for gating and barriers. We build each of our products to provide fast and convenient installation, simple and versatile pedestrian management, and safety for optimal peace of mind. 

Our innovative barrier designs don’t require hearty tools for installation, making them very simple to set up. They’ll help protect pedestrians in virtually any environment as we offer a wide range of size and height options. There are no end pinch points, making our gating and barriers safer and even easier to handle.

Our team builds each gate from heavy-duty steel and aluminum components for durable and lightweight safety solutions. They have a glossy powder-coated finish and are available in custom colors for fencing that looks great and matches the aesthetic of your venue. Our products are also available in OSHA standards, DOT, and NRC safety colors to best fit your needs. Then, when you’re done with them, our pedestrian gating nests or retracts to enable simple, compact storage.


Pedestrian safety equipment provides an effective barrier between pedestrians and adjacent vehicles, bicycles, trains, subways, and more. The growing construction, expansion, and renovation projects today in everything from residential areas to highways and airports make such safety measures all the more necessary. 

Installations such as fences, crash barriers, barrier gates, and bollards physically protect pedestrians and clearly demarcate spaces for different types of traffic in densely populated spaces and heavily traveled areas. These safety solutions help keep pedestrians out of dangerous areas in parking lots, highways, places under construction, and facilities that need to block off hazardous spaces. Along with providing safety, pedestrian barriers deliver simple, effective support to help pedestrians find their way.

At North American Safety Products, we’re proud to provide reliable safety solutions for a diverse range of industries and locations. Our barriers are applicable for:

  • Transportation hubs like airports and metro stations
  • Government and office buildings
  • Parking garages
  • Construction sites
  • Recreation centers
