Tailor-made Armco barriers
Being one of the only companies in the UK that have their own ARMCO production facilities has enabled us to maintain our reputation as an industry leader. Also, being ISO 9001 certified means exceptional customer service is at the core of everything that we do.
With decades of expertise working with crash barriers, we are also well placed to advise on the best solutions - something which our customers value greatly. Protecting your property is important. This is why we also provide a tried and tested armco barrier delivery and fitting service to make the entire experience as simple as possible.

We have recently completed a large project for the new Crossrail Depot in White City, London. As you can see from the images below, we designed and installed high-quality safety and protection items, which includes crash barriers that were galvanised in our own warehouse, to secure the property which will open with the new Elizabeth line in December 2019.

Terminal ends for your Armco barrier
CT Safety Barriers supply terminal ends to suit every Armco purpose and applications. Should they need to be pedestrian-friendly, we can incorporate armco posts, Pedestrian Ends or Plastic End Caps, powder-coated in any colour. Contact us for further information on the terminal ends we stock.
We also now supply safety barrier ends as well as Polymer fishtail, Pedestrian ends and Plastic end caps for posts, these are available in both yellow or black.

How Did the Armco Barrier Originate?
Not a lot of people know this but ‘Armco’ used to stand for “American Rolling Mill Company” founded in 1900, when a man called George Verity pioneered the barrier steel we see today. The company was borne out of the push for flat steel needed in motor cars. It used to be difficult to mill the steel to a consistent thickness and a consistent quality of steel.
Verity and his company created a wide sheet mill. But it wasn’t until they bought the Columbia Steel Company that they managed to develop what is now known as the Continuous Wide Hot Strip Mill. From this point on, they could reliably make uniform, high quality rolled steel, and ARMCO barrier became the standard bearer. Armco products went on to be ubiquitous in both motorsport (replacing hay bales in Formula 1!) and on our roads, as the UK implemented its first long-form ARMCO Crash Barrier on the M1 in 1973.
