James Fisher Testing Services is an expert in the testing of pedestrian, crowd control and vehicle barriers to ensure compliance to performance and safety standards.
Whether it's pedestrian and crowd control barriers or car park and vehicle containment barriers, JFTS offers testing and inspection services which are in strict accordance with the Home Office and Institution of Structural Engineers' procedures and accuracy requirements.
Barriers play a crucial part in crowd control and safety at events and as such UK guidance state that crush barriers, handrails and perimeter walls are required to be tested annually. Vehicle containment barriers also have to comply with stringent standards to ensure they can withstand vehicle impacts at speed.
All testing is conducted by our fully qualified and highly experienced testing teams, using electronic load measuring cells and high precision dial gauges to monitor deflection.
