What is a pedestrian safety barrier?

A pedestrian safety barrier is a safety barrier that is installed to protect pedestrians from danger – most commonly, from the impact of moving vehicles.

These barriers can handle varying degrees of force depending on their spec. If you are a business operating out of a construction site, for example, these barriers are something you would need to have in place in order to pass health and safety checks.


What makes a good pedestrian safety barrier?

A pedestrian safety barrier provides a visual aid and is used to reduce the risk of vehicle impact posed to a worker or passer-by who may be at risk of injury. A good safety barrier creates a safe zone and prevents impending accidents.

At Armco Direct, we provide a fantastic range of safety barriers to suit all sorts of sites. Companies such as Amazon and Land Rover trust in our brand and products to make sure their workers are kept safe.

Pavement Barriers

There are a wide range of different safety barriers that can be put in place in order to protect pedestrians. One of which is the pavement barrier. A pavement barrier is an Armco barrier made using heavy-duty galvanised steel.

You usually find these barriers in places such as car parks, but they are also installed in warehouses, construction sites and loading bays. The pavement barriers create a pathway indicating to people where they can and cannot walk.

Workplace Safety Barriers

One of the main causes of injuries within the workplace, especially on a high-traffic building site, comes from collisions with moving vehicles.

Workplace protective safety barriers have the additional benefit of establishing a one-way system and preventing large groups of people from being clustered together. This has been particularly useful in light of the pandemic. The barrier systems come in all shapes and sizes depending on your needs.
