Pedestrian Guard Rail

Specifically designed to help improve pedestrian safety, these guard rails are used to help protect people from vehicle traffic on footpaths and walkways. They provide a physical barrier between pedestrians and vehicles, helping to reduce the risk of pedestrian or vehicle accidents. Pedestrian guard rails are available in a galvanised finish or can be polyester powder coated in any RAL colour.

How Do Pedestrian Guard Rails Work?

Pedestrian guard rails are designed to create a physical barrier between pedestrians and vehicle traffic, reducing the risk of collisions. They act as a buffer to prevent vehicles from entering pedestrian areas, thereby making sure to protect adults and children alike.

The Benefits of Pedestrian Guard Rails

The benefits of pedestrian guard rails are as follows:

Enhanced Pedestrian Safety

This type of guard rail provides a barrier between pedestrians and vehicle traffic, which helps to increase pedestrian safety in areas where there is a potential risk of vehicle accidents. This is particularly important in areas with high pedestrian traffic, such as shopping centres, schools, and public spaces.

Protection of Property

Pedestrian guard rails can also help protect buildings, property, and other structures from damage caused by vehicle collisions. They can act as a buffer between the vehicle and the property, reducing the impact of the collision and minimising the damage caused.

Durable and Long-Lasting

Our pedestrian guard rail systems are made from high-quality galvanised steel, which provides excellent durability and longevity. This means that you can trust our products to provide long-lasting protection, helping to save you money on maintenance and replacement costs.
