Flexi Post

Heavy Duty Protection.

The Flexi-Post provides a semi-flexible system. The upper part of the post is mounted into a rubber shock absorber which limits the deflection of the Flexi-Post to approximately 120mm.

The strength of the Flexi-Post has seen it become the preferred option throughout Europe for installation at the ends of ramps and areas where the approach to a barrier exceeds 20m. Barriers in these areas are defined by the British Standard 6399 as twice-force barriers and are required to withstand a horizontal impact load of 300kN, derived from a 1500kg vehicle travelling at 6.4m/s impacting 450mm above floor level.

Twice-force could be considered an acceptable alternative to the AS/NZS 1170.1 standard of providing a barrier capable of withstanding 240kN (500mm impact height) at the end of straight ramps exceeding 20m in length and intended for downward travel.

Features:

Low deflection, energy-absorbing.

  • Impact tested to evaluate performance and compliance to car park barrier loading standards.
  • Provides protection from glancing blow impacts at low speeds with heavy vehicles.
  • The energy-absorbing characteristic reduces damage to the vehicle and the barrier upon impact.
