The collars can be bolted on in less time than it takes to weld banding or even attach split oversize pipe around these hazardous openings.

Besides the practicality and ease of installation, GPCs will also make a company compliant with both OSHA 1917.112(d) and OSHA 1910.29(k).  Thus, preventing dropped objects in the workplace.

In its return, Intrepid will offer the GPC-6 and GPC-X.  The GPC-6 is meant to encircle hole openings 6” in diameter, or less.  The GPC-X will help to widen the 6” opening when companies are faced with a row of pipe.
