Company Profile

  • Armco Crash Barrier

    Armco Crash Barriers is the generic name for a steel safety barrier system widely used both inside and outside. The aim of the safety barrier is to keep vehicles within a designated area to protect people, assets and property against injury and damage from the moving vehicle.

    The versatility of an Armco Barrier allows it to be used as a single or a multiple height barrier, with legs either bolted down or cast in to the ground. The legs can also be adapted to carry an integral handrail for effective pedestrian protection. All Armco barrier products are manufactured to meet BS6399, BS6180:1999 and are galvanised to EN ISO1461.

    Armco Barriers
    Off road Armco Barrier rails are 3500mm long with an effective length of 3200mm (overlap of 300mm with previous Armco barrier rail), the standard thickness of the barrier rail is 3mm. The Barrier rails can also be curved to suit your requirements. At CT Safety Barriers we also provide a cutting service allowing exact sizing of barrier runs.

    Armco Barrier Leg Types
    Posts for Armco Barriers are available in RSJ, spring steel and Z-section profile, and can be both bolted down or cast into the ground. The type of posts and their centres can be altered, dependent on the type of protection you require from your Armco Barrier System, typically the leg centres on Armco barrier are at 3.2mts, 1.6mts or 0.8mts.
