System 3 - Untensioned Bar
System 3 from Berry Systems comprises tensioned steel bars anchored to the structural steel columns of the car park. These can be easily and speedily replaced after an impact. The reduced impact deflection figures make System 3 attractive for both new build and refurbishment projects. The system is ‘locked off’ at each column location and, where suitable columns are not available, the Berry Flexi-Bollard can be employed to give absolute design flexibility and even lower deflection levels.
Independent dynamic impact tests were carried out at MIRA to EN 1991-1 (BS6399) with both 7.5 metre column centres and 2.5 metre centres with Flexi-Bollards. System 3 meets this standard and also the recommendations from the Institute of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers relevant to perimeter barriers for vehicle and pedestrian protection. It also meets the new European Standard BS EN 1991.1.1 2002 Annex B which has superseded the British Standard and defines imposed loads in Buildings.
Berry’s full range of in-fill panel options are also available from wire mesh to screen printed panels to give specifiers and car park operators the ultimate choice of style and colour.
