The Barracks multi-storey car park in Coventry was built more than 50 years ago and, until recently, has been maintained on a fairly sporadic basis.
The council decided that a major refurbishment was the best solution in the current economic climate, extending the life of the car park by another 10 years.
The 460 spaces it provides to both shoppers and businesses in Coventry are a vital part of the local infrastructure.
The project was awarded to Makers Construction, who in turn appointed Berry Systems to install new perimeter edge protection. For this, traditional ‘Armco’ style barrier rails were mounted on to our RB1X Spring Steel buffers. These absorb impacts, thereby reducing damage to both the barrier and any impacting vehicle.
Twice force barriers were installed at aisle ends where vehicle speeds can be greater. These barriers feature post centres of 800mm compared to the usual 1600mm.
Extensions were fitted to the buffers to support pedestrian handrails at 1100mm height. Anti-climb mesh from floor to handrail was also fitted to the front of the barriers to complete the requirements of BS EN 1 1991-1-1.
