What is an expandable barrier used for?
Expandable barriers are used to close off large areas where they can expand to deter access or deny entry where needed.
Where barriers can close off an area nicely they may be limited in terms of mobility where it matters. An expandable barrier is perfect in these instances. Because they are highly mobile they can be moved where needed in an instant and provide protection and safety quickly. What’s more, expandable barriers can be extended out to cover a wider area from left to right, making them suitable for construction work, maintenance, school corridors, airports and many more. A barrier such as the Ultra Expanding Barrier is one of the most popular options among our customers and provides instant benefits from the moment it is removed from the box. These tough portable barriers can extend up to 2.2 metres in width and can help to instantly close off an area. If being used outdoors each barrier can be filled with water to help weigh it down. When not in use this expandable barrier can fold up into itself and is equipped with a carry handle that almost makes it look like a guitar case. Use the barriers as vehicle or pedestrian barriers.
Can Pittman provide a steel expandable barrier?
Yes, we have excellent steel expanding barriers to choose from. One of the best examples is our Armorgard Barricade Expandable Steel Barrier – these high-quality steel barriers are very sturdy and are made to be used in the toughest of environments. Each of these barriers can expand up to 4 metres and will block off a large area in a short space of time. To make each barrier last in outdoors each one has been powder coated and has an anti-corrosive undercoat.
Another prime example is our FlexPro 160 Expandable Barrier - again made with highly durable steel these barriers can extend out to out a massive 4800mm, ideal for closing off large areas in an instant.
What are the benefits of expandable barriers?
●Highly transportable- expandable barrier can easily fold up and transport to and from the site when needed. Easily store away or put in work vans for easy installation where needed
●Cost-effective- expandable barriers can also cover large distances fast. Combine multiple units together to cover bigger spaces and reduce higher costs seen with other static barrier types.
●Mobile - most expandable barrier options will include castors or wheels to move around the site with ease. Roll the barriers into place for easy use.
●Highly visible entry deterrent - the barriers are usually highly visible to pedestrians or drivers and will certainly catch their attention while in use. Deter entry where needed. Use as indoor entry deterrents or temporary car park barriers.
