rapidrollAugust 20, 2014, Toronto, Ont. – Waterloo, Ont.-based Rapid
Roll Inc. launched its premiere product at the APWA’s International Public
Works Congress & Exposition in Toronto. Rapid Roll is a portable, temporary fencing system, created
to provide a quick barrier against danger.

 

Rapid Roll Inc. is the discovery of Venetor Group
proprietors Tom and Dennis Beraldo. After growing the construction equipment
rental business to be one of the largest in Canada, the Beraldo brothers sold
the company to United Rentals Inc. in 2011. Together, they joined forces with
long-time associate Jeff Carruthers to devote their time to improve the
effectiveness of safety barriers used in construction, industrial or
maintenance applications.

“Working alongside the industry, we know the resources
available for temporary barriers are not always the safest,” says Tom Beraldo,
President of Rapid Roll Inc. “Pylons, traffic cones, and caution tape are often
used for their speed and portability. However, these warning tools also can be
easily disregarded allowing for distracted pedestrians to walk into harms way.
Rapid Roll is truly a solution for providing a safe temporary barrier that can
adapt to each unique location. Our ultimate goal is ensuring the overall safety
of everyone working or passing through a temporary barrier.”

 

The Rapid Roll System:

 

The Rapid Roll system is based on the retractable fencing
technology of the Barrier Storage Cartridge. The fencing is easily extended and
linked to a variety of Rapid Roll Posts and Bases to create a secure structure.
Once the task is complete, the fencing simply is retracted via a handle and can
be stored or transported to the next job. Rapid Roll is available in 50 ft. /
15 m and 100 ft. / 30 m lengths and a range of colours.

 

Key product features:

          SAFE: Rapid
Roll provides a sturdy, strong presence that cannot be easily walked through.
Reflective tape positioned on both sides of the cartridge provides added
warning.

          EASY: Set-up
can be completed by one operator in approximately 2.5 minutes.

          EFFICIENT:
Post variations allow for an unlimited number of indoor and outdoor, open and
closed designs to protect each site. The system can also link together to
create a larger parameter.

          PORTABLE:
Weighing only 28 lbs / 12.7 kg (with 50 ft. / 15 m of fencing), the Barrier
Storage Cartridge can easily be picked up and moved from one job to the next.

APPLICATIONS: Rapid Roll can support a wide variety of
industries including, but not limited to, construction, maintenance, industrial
and utility work, landscape, childcare and emergency services.
