Car parks can be incredibly dangerous places without the correct car park barrier installation in place, thanks to the regular and heavy movement of vehicles and pedestrians.
It’s a common sight seeing bright smears of car paint on car park walls, columns and barriers. That’s because often vehicles are required to manoeuvre into small and tight spaces. Car parks by their very nature are often dark and dimly lit. Added to this, you’ve got the presence of potentially unaware pedestrians moving among the vehicles, which makes collision and injury a very likely possibility.
Minimise and prevent damage
It’s car park barrier installation which helps prevent more serious damage from occurring. Car park barriers can clearly mark the areas which divide where pedestrians and vehicles can go. Not only that, they can serve to protect the building structure itself. A collision with a supporting column can be highly problematic, but if a sturdy barrier is protecting that column, then the collision is likely to cause a lot less damage and cost to repair.
Shopping centre car parks are often the worst examples of where collisions occur. They’re normally underground and dark, while the amount of people coming and going is considerable.
Just as car owners should of course take considerable care when driving around these car parks and in choosing where they park, the onus is also on the car park managers to ensure the safety of pedestrians by putting the right safety measures in place to minimise and prevent damage. Learn why you need industrial safety barriers.
This can be done by first carrying out a risk assessment of the car park itself, checking for signs of wear and tear and where repairs and upgrades need to be made, as well as identifying blind spots where vehicle/ pedestrian collisions might occur.
