Road safety barriers. Pedestrian safety barriers.

Traffic barriers- devices used to keep vehicles within their roadway and prevent vehicles from colliding with dangerous obstacles such as boulders, buildings, walls or large storm drains. Traffic barriers are also installed at the road side to prevent errant vehicles from traversing steep (non-recoverable) slopes or entering deep water. Crash barriers can also be used to protect vulnerable areas like school yards, pedestrian zones or fuel tanks from errant vehicles.

According to the statistics pedestrians have four times more chances to get into a road accident than vehicles drivers. That's why installation of pedestrian safety barriers is so important. The number of accidents on the roads with safe barriers installed is reduced by 24% (according to international guide to road safety).

WayMark company offers you a wide range of restricting and restraint pedestrian safety barriers.

Restraint pedestrian safety barriers are used to prevent pedestrian's fall into protecting area. Restricting safety barriers are used to direct pedestrian traffic, keep pedestrians off certain areas and prevent their falling into danger zones.

Restraint barriers

according to GOST 52606-2006 restraint safety barriers are divided into two groups due to the terms of their location.

- road barriers installed on the edge of the curb;

- bridge barriers installed on the edge of bridge sidewalk.

Due to working principles restraint pedestrian safety barriers divided by types:

- parapet railing (non-deformable structure);

- barrier railing (extrenal impact causes elastic deformation of structural elements - pillars, hand rail, fencing, etc.);

- rack railing (external impact causes elastic deformation of pillars in general);

- combined structures, etc.

Restrictive barriers

Restrictive pedestrian safety barriers are divided into three groups due to its purpose.

- guides are disposed on the lateral dividing strip near overground and underground transitions in order to show the direction of movement to pedestrians;

- protective barriers are disposed on lawns and other areas that should be protected from pedestrians ;

- warning barriers are disposed on the sidewalks from roadway (if there are no restraint barriers), near overpasses and information signs supports and also power transmission poles to avoid people getting into danger zone.

Restrictive pedestrian safety barriers are divided into several groups due to its location:

- disposed along sidewalks and lateral separating strip;

- disposed by the overground and underground passages;

- disposed on lawns and other areas that should be protected from pedestrians;

- disposed by overpasses supports, power transmission poles and information signs supports to avoid people getting into danger zone.
