What is a Crash Barrier?
Crash barriers are essentially a bollard, post or barrier that can be installed in an area to absorb impact from the likes of cars, work vehicles, hard objects and many more. They are ideal for busy workplaces and warehouses and are usually installed next to key infrastructure, doorways, forklift charging points pallet racking etc.
The Defender Crash-Proof Post gives you a clever answer to protecting property in areas where there is high risk of collision with vehicles while also minimizing the damage done to the vehicle. The base of the crash barrier has four heavy duty springs which flex when hit with force, which are protected by a separate steel plate. The post can bend up to 30 degrees once it is hit, giving the driver time to realise he has hit something without causing much damage to the vehicle.
The barrier can be easily installed with four pre-drilled holes in base plate allowing you to bolt it to the ground. You can also connect a chain to the post by adding our “chain eyes” which can be simply screwed by hand through two-predrilled holes at the top of the post. This allows you to close-off larger areas using the chain which can be opened and closed as you wish. The flexi-post is perfect for busy warehouses with lots internal and external traffic such as pallet trucks, forklifts and trucks.
The post can avoid expensive collisions with shelving and loading ways blind-spots where trucks may have trouble reversing into areas. This is a high impact recovery post which tilts upon impact reducing damage. It is ideal for warehouses, factories, garages, provides excellent protection for busy areas and restricting entry. It comes with a 200 x 200mm base plate with protective cover.
