I have witnessed firsthand the effectiveness of pedestrian fencing; Encat supplied a section of RMS pedestrian fence in a busy commercial area; despite traffic lights, speed limits and policing, there was a constant stream of pedestrians crossing the road at a mid point. After we installed the road fence all pedestrians crossed at the traffic lights, a win for motorists and pedestrian safety, lives saved. I love being part of this great product

Panel Type 1 MEDIAN

Fencing Panel Type 1 MEDIAN is installed in the centre of the road usually on the median or the right hand side of the direction of traffic.

This fencing is specially designed to reduce injuries to vehicle occupants and pedestrians in the event of an accident. The unique staggered vertical bar layout helps improve vision for pedestrians and motorists.

The stringent RMS specifications of steel and weld quality ensure that in the event of an accident, when the steel and welds reach maximum yield, the fencing deforms and crushes in a pre-determined designed way to provide the best RMS determined outcomes for pedestrians and vehicle occupants. Spearing injuries from standard balustrades in the past were a problem.

To avoid injuries and litigation it is CRITICAL that the fencing has RMS compliant steel specifications and the welds to Australian Standards performed by a certified welders. You can be assured Encat pedestrian fencing ticks all these boxes.
