Armco Barrier Corners For Sale
Armco Barrier Corners For Connecting Armco Beam
When installing an Armco crash barrier it is very rare not to need to navigate some sort of change in direction. Depending on the site you are installing the barriers at, there may be a need to go around a piece of expensive equipment, or just to follow the perimeter of the car park. For these instances, corner fittings make the installation process easier, neater and more effective.
All our corner sections are designed to be installed with the support of two posts, these are usually at the termination of the two adjacent barrier runs. Depending on the type of corner you are looking to install these will be secured with either post bolts or post and lap bolts in combination with each other.
All our corners are intended to work at 90 degree angles, however, some of our “flexible” options allow you to bend them to suit more acute, or obtuse angles for sites where a strict right angle would not suit.
Do I need An Internal Corner or An External Corner?
Some people find the concept of internal and external corners difficult to get to grips with. The easiest way to visualise it is to imagine you are installing the barrier around a simple square car park.
Imagine you wanted to surround the car park in barriers to stop cars from leaving. Internal Armco corners would be used to face traffic inside the car park. If you were to use four corners you would end up with a close loop or barrier, with the face of the barrier facing inwards with the supporting posts on the outside.
Now imagine that you wanted to stop cars getting into the car park by putting a barrier around the outside. Using external corners would result in the barrier face pointing outwards, with the supporting legs being on the inside of the barrier.
In reality, most car parks are complex shapes and require a mix and match of Armco barrier corner sections to navigate around pillars, ramps, entrances and exit points.
What Are The Different Types Of Armco Corners I Can Buy?
This is the “standard” finish that these corners are supplied in. The hot-dip galvanised finish offers superior corrosion protection.
If you want to make your install stand out then powder coated yellow corner sections are the way to go. All powder coated Armco is galvanised before coating.
Lightweight with embedded reflectors. These plastic corners are available in vibrant colours and will inflict less damage to any vehicles that make contact with the corner as they are softer than steel.
Fixed corner sections are locked at a 90-degree angle and rely on the runs being true and square to align correctly.
For installations where a bit of flexibility is required then flexible corners are ideal. They allow more obtuse and acute angles to be formed with ease.
