Protection Barriers

Types Of Protection Barriers

Protection barriers can be used to:

Protection Barriers for Roads

One of the most common types of protection barriers are those used to keep people safe while they're driving. These barriers can prevent accidents in areas where a road has a feature that makes it unsafe. By giving drivers an advanced warning, barriers can help them avoid everything from sharp turns to dips. Not only are protection barriers for roads available in tall sizes, but they're also available with bright colors that will make it easy for drivers to spot them. The one concern that some people have about these barriers is even though they're designed to be as noticeable as possible, there's still the possibility that a distracted driver may hit one.

Since this does occasionally happen, the barriers are actually designed to deal with this situation. One way a barrier can handle this event is by absorbing the impact when a vehicle hits it. Many barriers are designed to be light enough to absorb collision impact. Although these barriers may look like they're in a fixed position, they actually have a base joint that allows them to tip over after being struck and then automatically lift back up following the impact. And for those barriers that are actually in a fixed position, they still have features that will keep the damage done during a hit to a minimum.

Parking Lot Protection Barriers

Parking lot barriers can keep cars from entering a lot at night. What's convenient about the barriers is they give property owners complete control over access to their parking lot. In most cases, business owners want their lots open during their operating hours but protected from entry once they close their doors for the day. Parking lot barriers provide this exact functionality in an easy to use manner.

These barriers can make it easy to keep reserved spots empty until the authorized driver arrives. The barrier simply needs to be raised so no vehicles can drive into the spot. When the spot's owner arrives, the barrier can be easily lowered to provide convenient access. Parking lot barriers can also help organize busy lots by making it easier for people to know exactly where to park.

Barriers for Sidewalks

There are two primary uses for sidewalk barriers. One is to make areas that aren't highly visible easier to see. The reason this is important is less visible elements of a sidewalk can confuse people as to where they are supposed to go. With the help of barriers, this confusion can be eliminated. The second use for these barriers is to designate where cars are not allowed to drive. Since there are many areas where sidewalks and roads come into contact with each other, barriers can be used to prevent drivers from inadvertently going somewhere that's reserved for pedestrians.
