When it comes to barrier ends, the most common type of terminal ends cover that you will see time and time again for a safety barrier is the Fishtail end (Type A). However, if the ends need to be Pedestrian Friendly, Pedestrian Ends or Plastic Stop Ends can be fitted to the barrier.

All steel type terminal ends can be powder coated to any colour. At CT Safety Barriers Ltd we have now introduced a new range of Polymer safety barrier terminal ends.

We also now have Armco safety barrier ends as well as Polymer fishtail, Pedestrian ends and Plastic end caps for posts, these are available in both yellow or black.

Benefits of Armco Barrier End Caps

The primary benefits of Armco barrier end caps are that they protect the metalwork from corrosion and cover any sharp edges for the safety of pedestrians and employees. Importantly, they eliminate these sharp edges whilst maintaining the high level of protection that your Armco barrier system provides.

Brightly coloured terminal end caps also help aid visibility and improve overall pedestrian safety. Our installation of the barrier end caps is a very simple procedure that ensures your crash barrier ends are protected.
