What Are The Different Armco Barrier Heights?

traffic barrier

Armco barriers are seen in all kinds of scenarios and come in various sizes – as such, you might be left wondering, what are the different Armco Barrier heights?

The main purpose of installing an Armco barrier is safety, but to achieve the very highest levels of safety in your installation, you’ll need to know that the product you’re using is completely fit for purpose.

That’s why, no matter what they need to protect, whether it be pedestrians, a workforce, buildings or expensive machinery, the Armco Barriers you install have to be the correct height and size to guarantee they can ward off the serious effects of a heavy impact.

Accidents In The Workplace

When an accident happens in the workplace, it can be catastrophic, not only with regard to injury and the cost of damage caused, but it can have a detrimental and long term effect on your business as a whole. 

One of the main reasons for accidents in the workplace is collisions from moving vehicles. If you haven’t got Armco Barriers installed to protect against such collisions, now’s the time to get it done before damage to property or even a potential injury occurs in the workplace.

Preventing Accidents In the Workplace 

The main reason for installing Armco barriers in your warehouse, factory, or other business premises is for the prevention of an accident or collision happening in the first place.

Armco crash barriers, installed at the correct Armco barrier height, will offer maximum protection from potential damage caused by out of control vehicles of all shapes and sizes, from forklift trucks to cars and HGVs.

Being made of solid galvanised steel, their strength means that a moving vehicle is stopped dead in its tracks before any real damage can take place. Couple that with high visibility, reflective powder coating and you not only reduce the damage from an accident but reduce the chance of an accident from happening altogether.

Not only do Armco barriers prevent accidents but, as has happened more regularly during the pandemic, they can be used to separate the workforce and create a one-way system. They can also be used to clearly mark out where vehicles can and can’t go, thus preventing them from straying into areas they shouldn’t, even when the vehicle is under control.

Whether you’re looking for a crash barrier on site, in a pedestrianised area, or on a private road, we have a variety of equipment to choose from, at a range of Armco Barrier heights, to ensure protection is available, regardless of the situation.

Armco Barrier Heights

We have four different heights of Armco barrier available:

  • 560mm high – these are used internally, in buildings such as warehouses, to protect from forklifts and vehicles with low ground clearance.
  • 610mm high – the industry-standard height beam, which can be used in places such as car parks to protect against SUVs and other vehicles.
  • 760mm high – the next height in our range can be used to protect against impact from HGVs, in places such as lorry yards and other areas where there are big vehicles.
  • 1100 high – Again designed to resist impact from HGVs, these can be used to protect fuel tanks, water tanks on building sites and offer extra protection as double barriers.
