BARRIER guardrail system

Optimum protection with the changeable guardrail system

The robust BARRIER guardrail system is classed as collective protection, and forms a barrier between the people located in the fall risk area and the fall edges present.


Everyone in the protected area can therefore move about in safety, without needing personal protective equipment or additional anchorage devices. Depending on the application, different assembly variants, from permanent installation to superimposed load, are available to cover the most varied types of installation. Because of its wide range of variants, the BARRIER guardrail system can be applied either from the very start or also as a retrofit later. If desired, the system’s colour can be adapted by means of a custom coating.

  • Reduced installation effort, thanks to the large post separations
  • Optimum adaptability to the structure of the building
  • Visual integrity thanks to the post’s tilting options
  • Robust guardrail made of weather-resistant aluminium

Installation without roof penetration

The installation of the BARRIER guardrail system requires neither roof penetration nor subsequent flaming or adhesive tasks. What is more, installation will not create cold bridges that could have a negative impact on the building’s energy efficiency.

Surface anodisation

Surface anodisation makes it possible to harmonise the BARRIER side protection system visually with the look of the building.
