Armco Barrier Ends – The Definitive Guide


An Armco Barrier is vital in stopping wayward vehicles firmly in their tracks, having the right Armco Barrier Ends depends on what the barrier is going to be used for.

Armco Barrier Ends, like the Armco Barriers they are attached to, are strong and often highly visible terminals which come at the end of an Armco crash barrier section to provide rigidity, improve visibility or further help prevent damage or injury.

Like the Armco Barrier itself, Armco Barrier Ends are made from solid steel and can be powder coated in High Visibility Yellow, to ensure they’re easily seen. This means they can act as a visible deterrent, to stop an impact from occurring in the first place – and the crash barrier ends can also remove any sharp edges which could be knocked into by passers-by. 

Types Of Armco Barrier Ends 

There are several different types of Armco Barrier Ends which you can choose from. With regard to our own wide range of Armco Direct Barrier End accessories, these include the following:

  • Fish Tail End
  • Pedestrian End
  • Yellow Fish Tail End RAL1007
  • Yellow Pedestrian End RAL1007
  • Polymer Pedestrian End with Reflectors
  • Polymer Fish Tail End with Reflectors

The application of the different types of Armco Barrier End, is dependent on what is happening in the area in which it’s being used. 

For example, a Fishtail End Terminal, might be used in areas where vehicles are moving around a lot, such as a warehouse, car park or loading bay. These fish tail ends decrease the potential of vehicle damage to the end of the beam and protect pedestrians from the exposed beam edge

On the other hand, the Pedestrian End has no sharp edges and reduces the risk of injury being caused in areas where there are lots of people moving about, such as through a doorway. This can be vital in preventing any cuts, scrapes and bruises which would come about from impact with the standard barrier end.
