A toeboard is a vertical barrier at floor level that prevents materials from falling off a scaffold or working platform. It’s an important safety feature for construction sites, where employees may not always be aware of the edge. The toeboard also prevents materials from falling off the edge. When not used as a guardrail, a kwikstage toeboard will keep workers safe and prevent them from getting hurt. If you are looking for a toeboard also called kickboard for your guardrail installation, you should consider installing one of these devices.
