We had heard from other businesses in the area of Barrier Marts excellent service and thought we would give them a try. Well - this company does not disappoint. Their products were the high quality promised and the service received was spectacular. We will definitely be using Barrier Mart in the future if we require any additional barriers.

I have purchased a few barriers through Barrier Mart and on every single occasion, they have been perfect. The items have done exactly as needed and the people I have spoken to have put up with me and been patient with my questions making sure I got precisely what I needed to that I had the right protection required. It is nice to work with a company that cares and I would recommend Compass without a doubt.

Armco Barrier Suppliers UK

Compass Protection began trading with a very specific ideal in mind.

Our goal was to provide specialist vehicle protection with our armco barrier products for use in many different settings. This includes Armco barriers as well as handrails and corner guards. What makes these creations special is that we can adapt them to suit various needs. In addition, we ensure they are great quality.

Car parks can be very dangerous locations when they lack the right kind of barriers. There is heavy movement here from both pedestrians and vehicles. It is not uncommon to see bright car paint smears on car park barriers, columns, and walls. The reason why is that vehicles have to manoeuvre into tight, small spaces. By nature, the sites are typically dimly lit and dark.
What type of post should I use?

The type of post and the centres they are set at, should be selected to suit the level of protection required and the frequency / severity of impact that you might expect in a given situation.

Whether you choose 3.2M , 1.6M or 800mm centres for Armco Barriers or 2.4m, 1.6m, 1.2m or 800mm centres for OBB obviously affects the rigidity of the system and the amount of deflection of the beam under impact, likewise the post section has a similar effect.

If you or your insurer requires the finished barrier to be BS6180 or BS6399 Pt1 compliant, then your choice should be RSJ or spring posts set at 1600mm centres. An Armco or OBB barrier with this post configuration is tested and proven to co comply with the requirements of the standards to contain a 1500kg car, traveling at 10mph and impacting at 90° to the barrier, which is installed at a height of 445mm to the centre line (the recommended height for car parks). In the case of the RSJ posts this is achieved with minimum residual deflection, ie the posts are not left visibly bent, but it is recommended that after a known impact that the section should be replaced.

How does a Crash Barrier work?

Crash Barriers work by absorbing the forces of an impact with a vehicle and transferring the load to the Crash Barrier. Armco Barriers.

Other types use weaker posts that give way and the load is mainly transferred to the horizontal beam meaning it deflects more but is safer for the occupants of the vehicle. Armco Barriers
