What is an Armco barrier? An Armco barrier is the generic name for a steel safety barrier system. The aim of the barrier is to protect people, assets and property against injury and damage from a moving vehicle.
The versatility of an Armco crash barrier allows it to be used as a single or a multiple height barrier. The legs can be either bolted down or cast into the ground. The legs can also be adapted to carry an integral handrail for effective pedestrian protection. All Armco barrier products are manufactured to meet BS6399 and BS6180:1999 British Safety Standards and are galvanised to EN ISO1461.
What size are Armco Barriers?
The Armco barrier rails are 3500mm long with an effective length of 3200mm (overlap of 300mm with previous Armco barrier rail). The standard thickness of the Armco barrier rail is 3mm, this is to ensure compliance with the relevant standards. The barrier rails can also be curved to suit your requirements. At CT Safety Barriers we also provide a cutting service allowing exact sizing of the barrier runs.
What types of Armco Barrier are there?
Posts for Armco barriers are available in RSJ, spring steel and Z-section profiles, and can be both bolted down or cast into the ground. The type of posts and their centres can be altered, dependent on the type of protection you require from your Armco crash barrier system, typically the leg centres on Armco crash barriers are at 3.2 metres, 1.6 metres or 0.8 metres. The standard post types are listed below, however, if you need a bespoke size we as a manufacturer can produce to your specification.

Armco Barrier Terminal Ends & Accessories
Armco Safety Barriers are usually finished off with a terminal end. The most common type of terminal for a safety barrier is the Fishtail end (Type A). However, if the ends need to be Pedestrian Friendly, Pedestrian Ends or Plastic End Caps can be fitted to the Armco barrier. All steel type terminal ends can be powder coated to any colour. At CT Safety Barriers Ltd we have now introduced a new range of Polymer terminal ends. We also now have Armco safety barrier ends as well as Polymer fishtail, Pedestrian ends and Plastic end caps for posts, these are available in both yellow or black.
Armco Barriers can be sent in different directions by the use of Armco Corners. These corners are available in 90 & 45 degrees, however, if you need your Armco barrier to go in a different angle the flexible corners are used. Armco Barrier corners are available in both internal and external formats.
