Crash barriers are safety barriers used to absorb or deflect vehicle impacts. When in place they can help to protect assets from damage, protect key infrastructure and safeguard employees from harm.
Crash barriers are generally made from steel or plastic. Some barriers will also be made of a combination of steel and plastic.
For a full steel crash barrier consider using an armco barrier. These heavy duty systems are highly suited to harsh environments and can protect assets in loading bays, private car parks, warehouses, vehicle service yards and more.
The force that crash barriers can take will depend on several factors.
- The speed of the vehicles in the area
- The weight and size of vehicles
- The thickness of the barrier
- The quality of the surface of the area
- The format of the barrier (whether they are static or flexible)
It is highly recommended that a full risk assessment of the area is carried out to ensure all risks and details are accounted for.
Regular inspection and maintenance of crash barriers are crucial to ensure their effectiveness. The frequency of inspections can vary depending on factors like location and local regulations. Generally, they should be inspected at least annually for signs of damage or wear, and any necessary repairs or replacements should be carried out promptly to maintain safety.
