Metal safety barriers for crash protection
Often known as either Crash Barrier, Armco Barrier or Car Park Barriers, these corrugated steel barriers protect infrastructure from the dangers of impact by vehicles. Armco is widely used in installations such as industrial/retail estates, car parks and warehouse facilities.
Protect people, fencing and buildings from damage caused by moving vehicles and forklift trucks. In areas where there is a significant risk of harm identified, letting a moving vehicle collide with the Armco barrier is the preferred outcome, rather than letting it continue onwards.
The corrugated profile of the steel barrier allows it to flex on impact while still maintaining strength. In addition, the barriers are designed to ensure that fast moving vehicles are deflected along the route of the barrier, while slow moving cars or forklifts will be stopped rapidly.
Armco – An Effective Traffic Controlling Vehicle Barrier
Fitting Armco barrier to segregate traffic from pedestrians, machinery, stock, racking and critical structures around your property can make a big difference between a minor repair, or an expensive and time-consuming repair cost, such as a structural wall or vulnerable warehouse shelving system. All of our steel Armco components are galvanised, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications, due to the, providing long-lasting weather protection.
Multiple Barrier Terminals and Post Options
In situations where pedestrians need to be kept segregated from moving vehicles, the Pedestrian End Terminal Armco Section is designed to create an end-point free from sharp edges that may cause injury to passing pedestrians. For applications where pedestrians will not be in close proximity to the Armco barrier, a standard wing end (also known as fish tail end) terminal is ideal to safety terminate the barrier run. Barrier posts are also available in concrete-in and base plated variants. This allows you to securely install car parking barrier around your site no matter if you have soft substrate or a concrete base.
