How do I prevent unathorised access to car park?
Answer - an Economical way of preventing this is to install a Swinging Double Leaf Height Restriction Barrier (single leaf options are also available dependent upon on size of gap).
This High-Quality Car Park Height Barrier is locked in the centre by means of a Shoot bolt, which if only this part gets damaged can easily be replaced.
Our Swinging Vehicle Height Restriction Barriers can be manufactured from 6M up to 12M aiding in the restriction of certain sized vehicles into certain areas such as Lorries and heavy-duty vehicles into car parks and is manufactured from box section. When access is required for higher sided vehicles, as ours are hinged barriers, just unlock the padlock, slide the shootbolt across and swing open the top sections.
These Height Restriction Barriers are manufactured from Mild Steel box section and all come as build in versions, which we highly recommend for sturdiness, floor mounted versions are also available at an additional cost.
On site assembly required, fully detailed installation instructions are supplied.
THIS IS AN IDEAL SOLUTION FOR CERTAIN AREAS THAT ARE TARGETED BY FLY TIPPERS OR THE TRAVELLING COMMUNITY.
The barrier sizes are calculated from inside of leg to inside of other leg.
The unit is supplied in four sections for ease of carriage, two vertical posts and two crossbeam sections.
Yellow & Black finish as standard, if any other colour is required please get in touch for pricing.
The standard UK height of Car Park Barriers from below crossbeam to ground level is 2.1M, but we can manufacture any height at no additional cost, the height that is required is determined by what height vehicles you wish to give access to, just give us a call when you are ready to place your order.
Height Barrier Warning sign on cross beam supplied. The sign on the Crossbeam is manufactured from stick on vinyl as we have found that prior to using this type of sign, the plastic ones were breaking quite easily. We are now also offering an Aluminium sign, this can be found under accessories.
Barrier is locked via a sliding shoot bolt (which can easily be replaced) and comes complete with 1 of our standard padlocks.
There is also an option for additional legs to lock the barrier in the open position, but we find that the Locking Lugs are a far much easier/cheaper alternative to legs as you do not need to excavate additional holes.
Barrier is manufactured from the following material: -
Uprights - 100mm square x 4mm wall making these a sturdier construction
Top Rail - 60mm square x 3mm wall
Material: Mild Steel
FINISH: Galvanised first then Yellow RAL 1021 and Black banded.
Lead Time : 2/3 working weeks from receipt of order.
Vinyl Stick on Height Barrier Warning Sign included in the price.

The basic specification for hot dip galvanized coatings on iron and steel articles is defined by a single standard, EN ISO 1461 ‘Hot dip galvanized coatings on iron and steel articles – specifications and test methods’. However, there are some exceptions to this standard (see thicker coatings below).
BS 729 was the old British galvanizing standard for hot dip galvanizing. It is now superseded by (BS) EN ISO 1461.
When hot dip galvanizing is specified, the surface of the steel is completely covered with a uniform coating whose thickness is determined principally by the thickness of the steel being galvanized (see Graph 1 below).
This is an important advantage of the galvanizing process; a standard coating thickness is applied almost automatically. The actual thickness of galvanized coating achieved varies with steel section size, surface profile and surface composition. Actual coating weights are often much more than the minimum specified in the standard. As coating life expectancy figures quoted are based on the minimum coating thickness, they are therefore usually very conservative.

Guidance on the design and performance of hot dip galvanizing is contained in EN ISO 14713 Part 1 and 2.
EN ISO 1461: coating minimum masses/ thickness on articles that are not centrifuged.
EN ISO 1461:coating minimum masses/thickness on articles that are centrifuged.
Thicker coatings than those set out in EN ISO 1461 can give additional protection for use in particularly aggressive environments and can be specified in conjunction with EN ISO 1461. It should, however, be emphasised that for most applications, thicker coatings are rarely necessary.
Grit blasting prior to galvanizing is usually the most appropriate method and a requirement for a nominal coating thickness of 1000 g/m² (140 µm) has been successfully specified for steel of 6 mm section thickness. For structural steelwork, it is advisable to ascertain whether thicker coatings could be achieved through their greater section thickness and without grit blasting.
Achieving thicker coatings through specification of a reactive steel is normally only appropriate for specific applications.
