How Armco Barriers Are Made

What Are Barriers?

Barriers are physical structures designed to provide protection in areas where there could be a potential vehicle collision or safety issue. Examples can include Pedestrian Guardrails, and Armco traffic barriers that ensure safety.

These barriers act as buffers between vehicles and pedestrians, property, or other structures, reducing the impact of collisions and preventing property damage or injury.

At Armco Direct, we’re proud to offer a variety of barrier systems to meet the needs of different commercial and industrial environments. Our products include Armco barriers, road barriers, racking protection barriers, forklift barriers, pedestrian guard rails, metal barriers, concreate barriers, warehouse barriers, bollards, and end caps. Each of these systems is made from high-quality materials and designed to provide long-lasting protection against impact, protecting pedestrians and important areas from harm.

Crash Protection Barriers

Crash barrier systems are designed to prevent any type of vehicle from colliding with pedestrians or property, therefore minimising damage and injury in the event of an accident. Our Armco barriers, for example, are made from galvanised steel and are highly effective in preventing vehicles from crossing over into pedestrian areas.

We also offer pedestrian guard rails which act as a physical barrier between pedestrians and vehicles, reducing the risk of accidents in high-traffic areas such as car parks or service yards. All of our crash protection barriers are cost-effective solutions to creating a safe environment.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Barriers?

When deciding whether or not to use barriers, it is essential to know the benefits of implementing them:

Increased Safety

Increased safety is the main benefit of using any type of barrier, or barrier system. Safety barriers will absorb the impact between vehicles and pedestrians, property or other structures, reducing the impact of collisions and preventing injury or damage.

Reduced Liability and Insurance Costs:

Having a temporary barrier, or types of road barriers, can help reduce liability and insurance costs by demonstrating that appropriate safety measures have been taken. This can also help to improve the overall safety culture and prevent accidents from occurring in car parks, construction sites and elsewhere.

Barriers can be used to control traffic flow and restrict access to certain areas, improving security and reducing the risk of theft or vandalism. The barriers ensure the area is secure and hard to access.


Our range of barrier systems are designed to meet the needs of different commercial and industrial environments. A safety barrier can be used in various settings, including warehouses, factories, distribution centres, car parks and service yards.
