Pedestrian Barriers

What are pedestrian safety barriers?

Pedestrian barriers are designed to create an easily deployed, rapidly installed low-level perimeter that can be simply relocated with minimal time or tooling.

They keep pedestrians away from potential hazards on roads and motorways, without the disruption and traffic jams that can occur when roads are closed.

Generally, pedestrian barriers are utilised in various industries for the general public’s safety and workforces, including building & construction, roadworks, sporting events, retail, and many more.

The experts in pedestrian barriers

At Blok N Mesh, we manufacture and supply over 500,000 pedestrian barriers every year across the UK and Ireland alone, not including redistributed branded barriers known and loved by the industry – so we like to think we know what we’re talking about when it comes to pedestrian barriers!

Our range of pedestrian barriers available to buy or hire includes, but is not limited to:

Which type of pedestrian safety barrier is best?

The type of pedestrian barrier utilised largely depends on the requirements of the environment where it’s installed. For example, most roadworks projects will use HDPE Chapter 8 traffic barriers due to the reflective Chapter 8 strip, designed to help with traffic management and minimise hazards.

HDPE water-filled barriers are also considered by those looking to increase the distance between other road users and road-related projects, as they are secure, strong, and very simple to install.

Many events utilise metal crowd control barriers to guide foot traffic or keep groups of pedestrians contained for their safety, as they provide sturdy crowd control support while also being narrower – leaving more of the footpaths free to use.

Possible events include:

  • Temporary displays or art installations
  • Festivals and concerts
  • New building or shop openings
  • Sporting or racing events
  • Open-air events, including fairs and circuses
  • Airports and ferry ports
  • Large queues
  • Maintaining social distancing guidelines
