Height restriction barriers are an excellent security solution for commercial car parks, industrial plants and public premises alike.

With so many barriers to choose from, it can be difficult to know which is the best solution for your unique needs. In this blog, we’ll dive into our extensive range of height restriction barriers for car parks, answer all of your burning questions and provide you with everything you need to know to make a truly informed decision. Let’s get stuck in!

What are height restriction barriers?

Put simply, a height restriction barrier consists of two upright posts that are attached together by a steel cross beam. Ultimately, this tall barrier prevents unauthorised access of tall vehicles, vans and trucks. Due to their fixed nature, height barriers offer an effective security solution by preventing tall vehicles from entering restricted areas, helping to prevent property damage as a result.

How tall are parking barriers?

The majority of height restriction barriers are between 2.0 and 2.5m in height but it’s not uncommon for them to range between 1.9 and 4m. At Cheshire Industrial Doors, we design our height restriction barriers in accordance with your unique requirements, manufacturing our barriers to your exact application and needs.
