Berry Systems | Be Aware of Imitation Products
Berry Systems are making people aware of imitation products within the market that pose risks should the worst happen
Berry Systems are a well-known manufacturer of vehicle restraint systems that are suitable for use on off-highway structures and in particular, car parks. Berry’s have always been focused in terms of car park safety to ensure best practice and ultimately keep all stakeholders safe within a car park environment.
“Berry Systems technology is certified to the necessary standards and our products are subject to rigorous quality testing and inspection processes.”
It has come to their attention that vehicle restraint systems, particularly barriers, are being sold as Berry Systems specifications when this is not the case. Berry Systems are the only UK distributor of their goods and are concerned that untested systems are being sold under the Berry’s name. This, of course, poses a danger as imitation products used are not tested, so it is uncertain of the outcome if a vehicle was to collide with it. The consequences of having insufficient car park protection are unthinkable and stress the importance of having the preventative approach to safety as opposed to a reactive approach.
To help counteract this, Berry Systems have issued the following statement:
“Berry Systems are aware of a number of imitation products circulating in the marketplace. Berry Systems technology is certified to the necessary standards and our products are subject to rigorous quality testing and inspection processes. Berry Systems does not take responsibility for imitation products and cannot support warranty returns, maintenance or repairs.
Please contact the Berry Systems team on 01902 491100 if you are unsure and we will be happy to support you.”
Mark Robbins of Berry Systems commented:
“We want the very best for our customers and for those helping drive car park safety and ensuring compliance. This is why we have issued the above statement to ensure people are aware of the ramifications of having an untested system. As part of our design and consultancy service we can reassure you on best use of our products and give you the confidence in knowing a tested system is installed.”
