The new Skipper Road Cone is a revolutionary two-piece cone that outperforms its competitors in all areas. The patent protected design features an incorporated helix, which deflects wind away from the cone and adds to its stability.
Its innovative glass bead sleeve has greater reflectivity than prismatic alternatives and is robust and durable, like the whole Skipper range.
This makes it perfect for all applications, from traffic to industrial and commercial, utilities and facilities management. Conforms to BS EN 13422.

The base is designed to facilitate an optional weight ring, providing even more ballast and reducing the need to double stack.
We have developed our award-winning retractable safety barrier system range and launched a new safety barrier unit and range of accessories for the facilities management sector, to make it quick and easy to create safety cordons in internal environments.
The Skipper versatile barrier XS unit has all the great versatility of our standard Skipper unit, but is for use without cones or posts, making it ideal for use inside any building. It has the same 9 metres of retractable tape, as well as new connector points for affixing to its own unique range of Skipper accessories.
The Skipper XS barrier unit has new connector points for affixing to its own unique range of accessories including:
Skipper XS suction pad holder/receiver – Easily connect to high gloss surfaces and glass.
The suction pad holder/receiver is designed for use with the Skipper XS unit (although it can be used as a standard tape receiver). The suction pad can either hold the Skipper XS unit in place, or be used to receive the tape end clip.
Skipper XS magnetic and cord strap holder/receiver – A receiver clip with added versatility.
The cord and magnetic receiver is designed for use with the Skipper XS (although it can be used as a standard tape receiver). As well as being able to attach to magnetic surfaces, it can also be tied to pillars using the provided ‘tourniquet’ cord. Once in place the receiver can then either hold the Skipper XS unit in place or be used to receive the tape end clip.
Skipper XS clamp holder/receiver – Robust connectivity from any angle.
The clamp holder/receiver is used to attach the Skipper XS unit and/or tape end to angular surfaces such as door frames, work surfaces and racking. It can be clamped in place and tightened by turning the screw. The clamp holder/receiver can be positioned either horizontally or vertically depending on the desired application.
Skipper™ Managing Director Alan Bentley said:
“Our Skipper XS range has all the versatility of our standard award winning Skipper range and makes it safe, quick and easy to cordon off internal areas for essential building maintenance and management. We take an innovative approach to our customer’s problems and have developed this range to suit the facilities management and building services sector. We understand that essential facilities maintenance works must take place whilst buildings are occupied – The XS range will allow that work to take place in a safe environment”.
Since the launch of our Skipper barrier product range in 2005, our innovative product range has been used in a wide range of applications, in many sectors, including traffic management, construction and facilities management.
