How Do Crash Barriers Work?

Armco crash barriers are designed to stop a moving vehicle, and prevent it from causing harm to the driver, other vehicles and property, or pedestrians in the surrounding area. If it is safer to stop the vehicle than to let it stop on its own, then an Armco crash barrier should be installed. This offers roadside protection from steep slopes, shallow-angle crashes, rivers, buildings, plant machinery and pedestrian areas.

However, Armco barriers are not just designed to stop vehicles. They are also carefully built and engineered to reduce the impact of a collision on the vehicle. To do this, Armco barriers are made to bend, twist and crumple before they snap. This has a couple of advantages:

  • As it bends, the barrier doesn’t actually bring the vehicle to a complete stop straight away, which reduces the level of g-force that drivers and passengers experience.
  • Bending and crumpling also spreads the impact energy created by the collision across the length of the barrier, rather than having one single impact point. This means that the damage is spread, but significantly lessened.
  • Flexible barriers are less likely to snap or fly off, which is incredibly hazardous for drivers and pedestrians nearby.

This is why Armco barriers have their signature corrugated shape, as this gives them the flexibility to bend and crumple, rather than breaking and snapping in the event of a collision. The shape and structure of Armco barriers also prevents vehicles from flipping or turning during the collision.

At Armco Direct, our Armco barriers are made from BS EN 1461 galvanised steel, which has the strength required to stop a moving vehicle, but is also flexible enough to bend, rather than stopping a vehicle dead on, or snapping and breaking.

Crash Barriers vs. Safety Barriers

Crash barriers and safety barriers are very similar, but there are a few key differences. Both are designed to keep people safe, reduce the likelihood of severe injury and to improve driver safety solutions.

Crash barriers are used exclusively in areas where vehicles are at risk – car parks, warehouses, industrial estates etc.

Safety barriers, on the other hand, have a wider range of applications. They can be used as a temporary traffic controlling method, as a pedestrian barrier, as a traffic barrier, as a safety measure in hazardous applications (both for pedestrians and for vehicles), and others. Concrete barriers, road barriers, plastic barriers, corrugated steel barriers, beam barriers, bridge barriers, cable barriers and more are all common types of safety barriers.

Crash barriers – and Armco crash barriers in particular – are almost always made from metal. Our Armco barriers are made from galvanised steel to BS EN 1461 standards, with an 80 year lifespan, so you can feel confident they will last without rusting, breaking down, or losing strength over time. This flexible barrier material allows crash barriers to safely stop vehicles and prevent them from causing any damage, but is strong enough to last a lifetime.


Which Barrier is Right for You?

The right crash barrier for you is one that is high-quality and fits your site’s needs. Easier said than done though, right?

When choosing impact protection barriers for your site or business, the extensive range of crash barrier protection options can be overwhelming. Choosing the right type of barrier can seem daunting, and even more so when you order online.

Crash barrier beams, curved barriers, concave and convex barriers, different barrier heights, Armco crash barrier dig-in posts or bolt down posts, barrier end sections – the list of parts for your Armco barrier can seem endless!

Fortunately, we are here to help. Our handy online calculator will help you work out exactly what Armco barrier supplies you need when it comes to your project. All you need to do is enter the length of barrier you require, the type of posts you need (this will depend on the ground conditions in the area you’re placing the barrier), any curves or angles you need, and that’s it! Our expert team will do the rest, building you a bespoke quote tailored perfectly to your needs.

At Armco Direct, we are specialists in Armco barrier safety, and understand perfectly the needs of our customers in a wide range of sectors.
