There are many different types of barriers on the market to choose from. They can be categorised into two major types permanently fixed or temporary and easily moved. Whatever the need, a good safety barrier must be visible (often brightly coloured) and give clear instruction.

Types of safety barriers include:

Temporary

Temporary barriers include bollards, pedestrian barriers, retractable belt barriers, and scissor barriers, plastic work gate barriers, post base, and chain barriers. Temporary barriers are often lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. Temporary barriers are ideal for sectioning off an area that is under maintenance or repair or for crowd control and queue management.
