FAQs about Height Restriction Barriers

What are Height Restriction Barriers?

Physical barriers, such as height restriction barriers, are usually made from steel or plastic and designed for the purpose of restricting the height of vehicles passing through them. They are typically used in car parks, garages, and other areas where vehicles need to be controlled for safety and security reasons.

What materials are Height Restriction Barriers made of?

Plastic and galvanised steel are two materials that can be used to make Height Restriction Barriers. While plastic barriers are lightweight and easy to move, metal barriers can provide greater security and are more durable.

How do Height Restriction Barriers improve Road Safety?

As oversized vehicles cannot enter areas where pedestrians or other drivers are at risk, Height Restriction Barriers can provide improved road safety. High-restriction barriers can also reduce accidents that can occur when vehicles collide with low-hanging objects.

What are the Benefits of using Height Restriction Barriers in Car Parks and Garages?

Parking garages and car parks can benefit from height restriction barriers in several ways, including increased security, better traffic flow, and improved safety. Using height restriction barriers can also help prevent property and infrastructure damage caused by oversized vehicles entering restricted areas.

How can Height Restriction Barriers help with Traffic Control and Management?

Traffic flow can be controlled using Height Restriction Barriers in areas with limited space or safety concerns. Height restriction barriers can also reduce congestion and improve traffic flow by restricting vehicle height.

What Types of Vehicles can be controlled using Height Restriction Barriers?

Cars, HGVs, buses, trailers, and caravans can all be controlled by height restriction barriers. Also, hazardous materials and oversized loads can be prevented from entering.

How easy is it to Install and Maintain Height Restriction Barriers?

The installation and maintenance of Height Restriction Barriers are generally straightforward. Metal barriers are more durable, but require more effort to install, while plastic barriers are lightweight and easy to move. A regular maintenance program can ensure that height restriction barriers remain functional and provide the level of safety and security desired.

What Colours are available?

Red, white, and yellow are some of the colors available for Height Restriction Barriers. In addition to improving visibility, these colors also help drivers identify restricted areas.

Are Height Restriction Barriers Weather Resistant?

The majority of Height Restriction barriers are weather-resistant and designed for outdoor use. In order to ensure that the barrier remains effective for a long time, it is important to choose a barrier designed specifically for outdoor use and to follow the manufacturer's instructions for installation and maintenance.

What lengths of Height Restriction Barriers are available?

Height Restriction Barriers are custom made to suit your requirements. The total expanse of a Single Leaf opening is 6M, and upto 12M for Double Leaf opening. The width of an height restriction barrier is measured from inside to inside of posts.

Can Height Restriction Barriers be locked?

We strongly recommend purchasing an additional post for locking in the open position. When closed, there is a shootbolt that slides into position, and it is then padlock, this in turn is protected by a shroud for added security.

What should the Height of Car Park Barriers be?

There is no specific car park barrier regulation that stipulates what height these barriers should be. However, the average car park height in the UK generally falls between 2M and 2.5M.
