"A smart, simple idea"

"also fills a safety void as a safety edge for stage aprons, that we don't have in the United States. It's a smart, simple idea." And not just a void in the US, we'd like to add!

ABBT Widget of the Year Award

Widget Product of the Year Award

As reported in Members' News in the ABTT's Sightline magazine, Summer 2011:   Widget of the Year.   The award went to Edge Safe from Edge Safe Ltd.  The judges felt that this product makes a significant contribution to safety in theatres in that it provides a low profile barrier to stop wheeled items such as flight cases and Tallescopes falling from the front edge of the stage.

Safety Matters Association of British Theatre Technicians, Summer 2011

  The following article was published in the Safety Matters section of Sightline, the ABTT magazine:   "Once footlights were generally taken away there have been problems in recognising the front edge of the stage.  Luminous paint or reflectors did not have the same effect and both performers and crew have been known to walk off the edge of the stage.  Flight cases and even mobile towers and Tallescopes have been known to have rolled away in the dark.   "Edge-Safe is a new safety product which considerably reduces the hazard of an exposed front edge of the stage.  The stage safety edge provides strips of a rubber compound with aluminium based visible strips of reflective/photo-luminescent sections which are not usually seen by the audience.  Width is 200mm, maximum height of 50mm and it is supplied in 1m sections.  The Edge-Safe can just be laid flat but it is recommended that it be fixed down as well.   "The ribbed edges laid on the flat with the visible raised strip enhance protection for both crew and actors from missing the edge of the stage.  Wheeled objects such as trucks or flight cases are unlikely to be pushed over the edge."
