Fencing Panel Type 1 VERGE is installed on the footpath or the left 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.
Our Pedestrian Fencing is 100% Compliant with RMS Drawings, Specifications and Australian Standards.
