Pilot Retractable Belt System – Finalist in the Victorian Premier’s Design Awards


Barrier Group is thrilled to announce that our Pilot Retractable Belt System has been selected as a Finalist in the 2019 Victorian Premier's Design Awards in the strongly contested Product Design category.

The Awards attracted a very high calibre of submissions across eight categories which were judged by an independent Jury Panel of industry experts.

The Pilot Retractable Belt System comprises a 10m retractable belt unit that has a unique range of compatible accessories that attach either to the unit or each other via a simple to use Twist-Lok feature. Accessories available include:

  • Pilot Cone Mount – a handy adapter for mounting a Pilot Belt Unit or multitude of accessories onto a standard traffic cone. Each Pilot Belt Unit comes complete with a Cone Mount Adapter.
  • Signs – We have clear acrylic sign holders which attach via the Twist-Lok feature as well as a range of purpose-designed polypropylene safety signs.
  • Pilot-H5 - Pilot High 5 Hook Accessory for keeping cables off the ground or hanging safety vests, goggles etc
  • Pilot 4 Way Receiver – a terminal for up to four belts. Can be mounted on a post or traffic cone via the Twist-Lok feature
  • Pilot Telescopic Multi-Post – a mobile telescopic post that includes a mid-mount facility for attaching the majority of Pilot accessories, as well as a Twist-Lok post mount at the top.
  • Pilot Caddy – a handy receptacle for safety goggles, gloves, earplugs, brochures etc
