The height restriction barriers consist of all steel construction coated white with a white powder coated aluminium arm with red fascal markings and knocking arm for driver warning. The Height Restrictors triangular steel arm carrier is mounted on the hinges of the main support post which in turn supports the arm. The height restriction barriers knocking arm is suspended by adjustable links in order to adjust the height on site.

Product overview

The height restrictor is available as a fixed or opening restrictor and is a simple & economic means of ensuring that vehicles above a certain height do not have access to a roadway or parking area.

Avon Opening Height Restrictor

The opening height restrictor consists of all steel construction coated white, (as standard), with a white powder coated aluminium arm with red fascal markings, and a knocking bar (optional) suspended by adjustable links, which can be altered on site. The other end of the support arm is secured in a catcher post, which is height adjustable, to take into account variations in the road camber. The arm is locked into the catcher post, through a padlockable, elongated bar which allows control from normal pedestrian height. A second catcher post is provided to lock the arm in the open position.

Avon Fixed Height Restrictor

The fixed height restrictor, like our opening unit consists of all steel construction coated white, (as standard), with a white powder coated aluminium arm with red fascal markings, and a knocking bar (optional) suspended by adjustable links, which can be altered on site.
