THE BIG 5 – DUBAI 2018
Come and visit us at The Big 5
November 26-29, Dubai World Trade Centre
Sheikh Saeed Halls 1-3 & Trade Centre Arena – booth SS1 C128.
We will be pleased to show you our newest product: GUARDLED™
POLSAFE® – Shock-absorbing protection systems
PolSafe® identifies those Safety Elements patented by Fasipol consisting in guards for the sharp metallic edges on the rear part of guardrails located next to cycle lanes.
Thanks to this kind of protection, it is possible to avoid risks deriving from the contact with such metallic parts, and to reduce and cushion the impact on cyclists and pedestrians, caused by their accidental collision with the rear part of the guardrail.

«From 1974 to today, we have produced items mainly as external commissions. In the future, as well as satisfying our clients’ needs, we would also like to be known for autonomous design and production».
The change of pace for Fasipol, the Sorbara-based company that specialises in the moulding of polyurethanes, is reflected in the words of founder Erio Sacchetti and clearly demonstrated with the “Design for safety” programme.
«It is our anti-crisis recipe», confirms Sacchetti, «our response to so-called market and product innovation».
The project is developed in two phases. The first involves the designing of products aimed at improving road safety. «Fasipol’s technical office, led by Roberto Reggiani, has patented Polsafe», explains Sacchetti, «a system to protect the metallic elements at the rear of guardrails. To have an idea of its application, consider the San Pancrazio cycle and pedestrian path. The cycle path, recently highlighted by the media for its dangerousness, has been improved thanks to our polyurethane protections. The Polsafe protection system, covering the sharp parts of the rear of guardrails, reduces and softens the impact when a cyclist or pedestrian suffers an accidental collision».
With regard to its polyurethane rollers, conveyor belt components for the selection of fruits and vegetables, Fasipol has obtained the Quality Certificate for the materials coming into contact with food.
This polyurethane was designed to produce the external components of cars such as bumpers, radiator grills and mudguards. It stands out for being extremely resistant to breakage, heat resistant and for the quality of its surface.
