What is an Armco barrier?

Although most people see Armco barriers regularly, many do not know their purpose or even what they are called. Despite this, Armco barriers, also known as crash barriers, could very well save your life or that of someone you love.

Granted Armco barriers aren’t a whole lot to look at, they are made of robust steel & designed to fully withstand the impact of an oncoming vehicle. The crash barriers are often located on motorways across the United Kingdom, keeping our drivers safe from oncoming collisions, however they can be used for a range of different purposes, including protecting livestock & machinery.

Things to consider when installing an Armco barrier

Before installing an Armco barrier, planners have to decide whether the collision, which could occur, would be more or less dangerous with the barrier in place. Armco barriers do come in a multitude of different shapes and sizes, meaning that no matter what your requirements, we have a product to suit your needs.

As previously mentioned, Armco barriers can be used on much more than busy roads & motorways. You will often see Armco barriers located in warehouses, yards, car parks, farms, outside schools & loading bays.

On top of the peace of mind you have after installing a crash barrier, they are also extremely versatile & require very little maintenance once they have been installed.
