  • Publication number: 20140325933
    Abstract: A safety device (10) is applicable in association with an aperture (20) made in a floor (22), or work, support or bearing plane, through which a service element (12, 14, 16) passes with a substantially longitudinal development, such as a pipe, tube, cable-conduit and suchlike. The safety device (10) is usable to completely close the empty space defined between the peripheral edges (18) of said aperture (20) and the transverse bulk of said service element (12, 14, 16). The safety device (10) is formed by a plurality of modular sections (24, 26) to define a base body (11), suitable to completely surround said service element (12, 14, 16), which functions as a closing barrier of said empty space and which can be configured to define an internal passage (76, 78, 80) in order to house the service element (12, 14, 16) to size.
