What is the Livis Safety Barrier System


The Livis Safety Barrier System has been designed to create a safe working environment and increase productive working time on Rail and Aviation Infrastructure.


Previous deployments have demonstrated that the Livis Safety Barrier System can increase productive working time by 500% thereby dramatically reducing the cost of a job.


With careful planning project costs can be reduced by as much as 50%.



Having successfully gained full LUL approval for use on all platforms, depots and concourses. Commissioning the Livis barrier for your project is a simple generic process that our team will support.

We are currently working towards Network Rail approval.


The Livis barrier is engineered to provide full scale protection to airside and land-side structures, equipment and most importantly people. This ensures minimum disruption and optimum traffic flow for passengers and critical logistics - providing continuous operations at significantly reduced costs.


Livis Safety Barrier System features are:

  • Modular construction - simple install

  • Vacuum powered - no impact on assets

  • Suitable for all passageways, platforms, depot and concourse areas 

  • Installed by competent / trained resources

  • Fully adaptable via various accessories to suit your needs




Shock absorbers – reduces forces applied to the surface that the barrier is fixed to during an incident.  


Standby pump – In the event of a failure of the duty pump a standby pump can be manually selected.


Vacuum reservoirs – the use of teservoirs allows a continuation of vacuum/suction of up to 30mins without the use of the vacuum pumps.


Manual struts – manual struts can be deployed if suction is lost


Visual and audible alarm – if failure occurs, a Piezo alarm (100 dbA, warble) will sound and  xenon  light (1 Hz flashing) will flash.


Trained personnel – whilst working in safety critical environments the barrier must be attended and monitored by a competent person.
