Streetworks and Pedestrian Safety Barriers

Streetworks and Pedestrian Barriers

Road Barriers

Road safety is paramount in any situation. This is especially true when carrying out construction work that encroaches on roads or holding an event that requires use of a road. In order for work to be completed in a timely manner, and for event attendees to enjoy their experience, safety needs to be taken care of. Border Barriers supplies barriers and other products to provide effective protection for streetworks and occasions where pedestrian safety is an issue.

Border Barriers supplies the following road barriers, available for purchase or hire, all over the UK and Europe:

  • Self Weighted Barriers - usually weighed down with concrete, these barriers are difficult to move and provide a sturdy safety solution.
  • Waterfill Barriers - very light until filled with water. These barriers are easy to position, allowing for a more flexible barrier system.
  • Chapter 8 Product s - Chapter 8 compliance is required for all road, site and street work. Border Barriers has an extensive range of Chapter 8 products available.
  • Crash Tested Barriers - Border Barriers has a selection of barriers MIRA tested for impact at various speeds depending on requirements.

Whenever roads are near, the effect of traffic and vehicles needs to be taken into account. Employees or event-goers on or near roads can sometimes be vulnerable to vehicles that become errant or are being driven dangerously. In these instances crash tested barriers are ideal as they minimise the risk to employees and the general public. Crash barriers are especially needed if the event being held involves racing or motorsport

Health and safety regulations require that appropriate measures be put in place to protect the general public and anyone performing streetworks. This means having a robust barrier system to clearly highlight areas for vehicles to avoid as well as provide cover if a vehicle were to go off course.
