BOPLAN® launches “BOPLAN® SPORT”: the range of safety solutions for sports competitions.


Safety barriers for the finishing area

The BOPLAN® RACE BARRIER is specially designed for the protection of the finish area of cycling races. These yellow polymer barriers of 1m40 high provide optimal protection for both riders and spectators during one of the most critical phases of the race. The 70° angle of inclination to the ground ensures that spectators are kept a safe “selfie distance” from the riders' lane.

The safety fences can be seamlessly connected with a tongue and groove connection and have a continuous, recessed advertising space. The legs are collapsible and specially provided openings ensure problem-free transport with a forklift.

  • made entirely of impact-absorbing polymer
  • height of 140 cm in combination with 70° angled position ensures a safe distance from the audience
  • seamless connection by means of tongue and groove system
  • easy to link together
  • recessed advertising space
  • can be weighted for optimal stability
  • folding legs
  • stackable and easy to use
  • special recesses for forklift transport



The BOPLAN® RACE TOTEM can be used at potentially dangerous places in the course where clear signage is required: at pedestrian refuge islands, speed bumps, junctions, pinch points, narrowings of carriageways, dangerous obstacles such as road signs and posts, street furniture, etc. Deployment of race marshals in these areas is often inadequate and even dangerous, with possibly serious consequences such as bodily injury to participants and employees.

The BOPLAN® RACE TOTEM is designed to warn participants of an obstacle in time. In the event of an impact, the energy-absorbing polymer ensures much less risk of injury.

  • great visibility from a distance due to its striking yellow color, its height of 2m40 and the pulsating light signal at the top
  • warning sound signal
  • direction indication for the riders on which side to pass
  • 180° protection around the obstacle
  • can be weighted for optimal stability
  • easy and quick to install
  • weather resistant
  • impact-absorbing polymer
  • all-curved design reduces risk of injury in a collision
  • equipped with GPS tracking system


quickly deployable collision protection along the race course

BOPLAN® RACE BUMPERs are often seen at cycling races, such as the E3 Saxo Bank Classic, the UCI Para-Cycling World Cup and the World Championship City Mountainbike. This type of safety solution is also perfect for use at other, similar sporting events. The following features of the BOPLAN® RACE BUMPER contribute to a safe and worry-free event:

  • Impact absorbing
    If a participant in a sports competition hits the BOPLAN® RACE BUMPER, the force of the impact will be significantly reduced, avoiding  serious injuries.
  • Quick installation
    Obstacles are easily secured with the BOPLAN® RACE BUMPER. The bumper is installed and removed in the blink of an eye!
  • Sustainable
    The bumpers last a long time and are virtually maintenance free. You can use them for multiple races and easily stock them afterwards. In addition, they are 100% recyclable.
  • Weatherproof
    Just like the participants, our safety products continue to perform in all weather conditions!
