What is a barrier?
A barrier is an obstacle, structure or fence that prevents movement or restricts access to a potentially dangerous or hazardous area. Barriers can be fixed or temporary dependent on the environment or application.
Why are they important?

What does it do?
A barriers main function is to prevent accidents and safeguard people. They are also essential in the compliance of health and safety law, regulation and legislation.
Different types
There are many different types of barriers on the market to choose from. They can be categorised into two major types permanently fixed or temporary and easily moved. Whatever the need, a good safety barrier must be visible (often brightly coloured) and give clear instruction.
Temporary
Temporary barriers include pedestrian barriers, retractable tape tensa barriers, and scissor barriers, plastic work gate barriers, post base, and chain barriers. Temporary barriers are often lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. Temporary barriers are ideal for sectioning off an area that is under maintenance or repair or for crowd control and queue management.
Fixed
Fixed barriers include traffic barriers, crash and impact barriers, car park barriers and fences. The robust structures are anchored permanently to the concrete or floor with surface fixing bolts, through bolt anchors or chemical anchor bolts.
Applications

• Offices
• Schools
• Outdoor entertainment / sporting events
