Where to install crash and/or pedestrian barriers

 

Here we give you some guidance in how you should choose between installing crash and/or pedestrian barriers as a protection in your workplace facilities.

 

Crash barriers only 

  • Face ends of pallet racks 
  • Entry points for trucks between racks 
  • Sensitive infrastructure near truck passages 
  • Ramps (fall protection additionally needed) 
  • Along walls opposite pallet racks and walls next to truck passages (if space permits) 
  • Office booths on shop floors, especially if glazed 

Self-closing gates 

  • Crossings for pedestrians 
  • Planned entry/exit point to a hall area with truck traffic 

 

Crash and pedestrian barriers 

  • Separation of truck passages and pedestrian walkways 
  • End of a truck slope leading onto a truck passage 
  • Separation of workplaces from truck passages 

Pedestrian barriers only 

  • Infront of a door leading onto a truck passage 
  • Next to a gate for truck passage so people will not accidentally walk into track (door for pedestrians should be placed next to the gate) 
  • Prevent persons from taking hazardous walking routes (change behaviour)
