VERGE SAFETY GUARD RAILS SYDNEY

VERGE TRUCK GUARD RAILS
SYDNEY FOR LOADING
DOCKS & CAR PARKS

This heavy duty, high containment car park safety barrier system protects high centre-of-gravity heavy vehicles. If you have a car park, loading dock, access ramp or private access way to your building consider installing guard rails.

Verge Truck Guard Rail Sydney

Car park barriers are a specific range of safety barrier systems designed for the protection of people, buildings, plant and equipment. Their design and function are specific to vehicle movements encountered in a car park or warehouse/industrial environment.

Verge Safety Barrier posts are significantly stronger than a similarly sized and anchored rigid post. The vulnerability of rigid posts is the high peak load transferred to the anchors upon vehicle impact typically resulting in anchor failure.  All Verge Stop barriers incorporate a unique patented yielding base plate that minimises the peak loads transferred to post anchors.

  • Full-scale crash tested car park barrier
  • Heavy duty, high containment protection
  • Modular forklift guardrail design
  • Compliant to AS/NZS 2890.1: Parking Facilities – Off Street Car Parking
  • Compliant to the 40kN impact load (Type G) described in AS/NZS 1170.1: Structural Design Actions
  • Energy absorbing base plate design prevents damage to the concrete substrate
  • Can be configured with anti-climb mesh infill when fall protection for pedestrians is required
  • Only two (2) anchor fixings per post

How The Verge Truck Guard Rail Works for Car Parks, Loading Docks, Private Property and Commercial Access Roads & Driveways in Sydney NSW AustraLia

The defining feature of Verge Stop posts are the long
cuts in the base plate breaking the plate into three fingers connected by a common stem.

The fingers allow the mounting of the post upright to be
separated from the anchor(s). Upon impact from a vehicle, a plastic hinge will form at the location where the fingers that the post is mounted to begins to rotate backwards. 

This deformation serves two primary functions: 

  • The load capacity of the plastic hinge is designed to be less than the pull-out capacity of the anchor bolt
  • The deflection of the system allows for greater load transfer to adjacent posts thereby sharing the impact load from the vehicle

Installation of Verge Guard Rails

Commercial Property W-Beam Guard Rails

W-Beam guardrail is the world’s most widely specified safety barrier system and is frequently used in Sydney, NSW, Australia. It comprises steel posts that support a w-beam rail element. Safe vehicle containment and redirection is developed through a combination of the flexural resistance of the rail and the bending resistance of the posts. 

Our guardrail designs are manufactured in accordance with Australian state road agency designs. Designs vary from state to state. The most common is a w-beam guardrail supported by a c-post and steel blocking piece.

How The Public Domain Guard Rail W-Beam Works for Warehouses, Loading Docks, Car Parks & Businesses in Sydney

Safe vehicle containment and re-direction is developed through a combination of the flexural resistance of the w-beam guardrail and the bending resistance of the supporting posts.

Upon impact, the posts absorb some of the crash energy through post rotation in the surrounding soil prior to separation from the guardrail as they fully yield. The blocking pieces, positioned between the guardrail and posts, minimise vehicle snagging and reduce the potential for the vehicle to vault over the barrier by maintaining rail height during the initial stages of impact.

Once the guardrail separates from the posts, the rail forms a re-directive ribbon, guiding the vehicle away from the nearby hazard.
