You may be wondering what height an Armco barrier should be set to? When installing barriers for safety reasons, it is important to comply with health and safety rules, but these can vary. Here we dive into the different Armco barrier heights available online and what specific Armco Barrier height is right for you depending on business sector.
Workplace Safety & Preventing Accidents
The most common reason for installing Armco barriers is to provide added safety and security to warehouses, factories, public spaces or other business premises. Armco crash barriers offer maximum protection from potential damage when installed at the correct height – which is different depending on the situation. From forklift trucks to pedestrians, cars and HGVs, the height can matter more than you think.
Armco barriers are made of solid galvanised steel, meaning they’re strong enough to stop a moving vehicle in order to minimise damage. They are the most durable barriers we offer and an excellent choice due to their durability and high visibility coatings.
Armco barriers are also an easy solution to separate your employees to create a one-way system, or perhaps cut people off from dangerous areas.
Armco Barrier Heights
560mm – the shortest of our Armco barriers are usually installed internally, in warehouses and train stations, to protect vehicles with low ground clearance and to keep people away from dangerous areas.
610mm – 610mm is the industry-standard height beam. 610mm Armco barriers are commonly used in car parks and the perfect height to stop most traffic.
760mm – 760mm Armco barriers can be used for larger vehicles, such as HGVs, lorries, tractors etc. These are a good choice for lorry yards, farms and any area where big machinery is involved.
1100mm – As well as resisting large moving lorries and tractors, 11000mm Armco barriers can offer extra protections by being utilised as double height Armco barriers.
