East Marketgait, Dundee:
Our innovative Bri-Safe Wire Rope safety barrier has been installed at the new, 500 space East Marketgait car park in Dundee. The multi-storey car park serves the new leisure centre which is part of Dundee City Council’s multi-million pound redevelopment of the city’s waterfront area. The car park, incorporating a retail unit is linked to the leisure centre by a uni-central foyer and the complete facility boasts a competition sized swimming pool, health suite, café and flumes.
Our safety barriers were specified throughout the car park including their column mounted Bri-Safe perimeter barrier which meets BS EN 1991 1991-1-1 standards. With a zero footprint in the parking bay, Bri-Safe allows architects to maximise the parking space available, while providing a flexible system that ‘gives’ on impact to minimise damage to vehicles and the barrier itself.
It creates a visually attractive barrier that combines an independently tested safety performance with architectural flexibility to enhance the appearance of the whole structure.
Whilst most of the car park perimeter was protected by Bri-Safe barriers, areas that did not provide convenient structural columns were protected by Berry Beam barriers that are floor mounted on RB1 Spring Steel Buffers.
