Crash Barrier Beams

Finding the right crash barrier beam to suit your needs is vital in guaranteeing the safety of those who may be in the danger zone, so to speak. At Armco Direct, we offer the complete package when it comes to providing you with off-highway application solutions. Ready to get started? We’ve got you covered! 

What is a barrier beam? 

A barrier beam is used in locations such as factories and industrial premises, as well as vehicle parks, as a way to increase safety measures. At Armco Direct, our barriers are produced from solid steel that is galvanised in line with the BS EN 1461 and compliant with BS 6180. This ensures it withstands everyday wear and tear and will last for years to come despite the harsh weather conditions the UK often experiences. 

At Armco Direct, we have a range of barrier beams that fit these high standards. For example, the 3.2m Effective Beam is a great barrier for those working in distribution and comes in powder coated yellow as well as standard galvanised (giving it increased visibility for dark winter evenings). Alternatively, our 2.4 m Open Box Beam Crash Barriers work well when mounted on dig in posts and bolt down posts.

Each crash barrier is compliant with the relevant UK industry safety standards so you can be rest assured it will pass your health and safety audits. We also provide a spec sheet for each of our crash barriers. This enables you to see exactly what you are getting before you make a purchase. Once you place the order, we can confirm our barriers are able to be delivered to you within 48 hours of you making your purchase. 

How do crash barriers prevent damage?

Crash barriers are installed as a way to prevent accidents. If you put a crash barrier on-site, you are instantly reducing the risks of injuries taking place. It allows your workers to go about their daily tasks with the knowledge that their employers have prioritised their wellbeing, putting protective measures in place to reduce the risk of potential incidents. 

Armco barriers are designed to better control collisions that take place and to reduce the impact these incidents have. The design of the barriers ensures the impact of the collision is directed towards the barrier, which prevents the vehicle from spiralling out of control. The steel they are made from makes certain that, should a vehicle collide with a barrier, it reduces the speed of the vehicle and redirects it, minimising the wider-scale damage. 

At Armco Direct, we have been at the forefront of the industry for numerous years and, as a result, have a wealth of knowledge at our fingertips. We have used this to create crash barriers that can be used in a variety of environments, from protecting pedestrians walking by or working in an environment near a loading bay area. 

Crash barrier beams have been known to save lives, and we recommend every warehouse, car park, loading bay and industrial premises have them installed as a way to protect all those involved in those projects.

How are Armco barriers installed? 

In order to offer maximum protection, it is imperative that your crash barrier beams are installed correctly. While you can install barriers by yourself, it can become complicated which is why we would recommend you get the barriers installed by a professional. You can find the steps needed to install them correctly here. It is a five-step process that begins with connecting the components together and concludes with ensuring the main barrier is protected using the correct barrier ends. The ends you choose will vary depending on your specific needs. We offer a variation from Polymer-safe ends to Yellow PVC ends for higher visibility. 

At Armco, we do not install the beams ourselves; however, our experts are on hand to answer any questions you may have from making sure you have the correct crash barrier beams to offering advice as regards the best ways to install them – all within 48 hours from making your order.
