Berry Systems design, manufacture, supply and install specialist safety barrier systems ideally used in car parks, industrial and commerical locations. Acknowledged for being market leaders, their high-quality systems and services are achieved through meticulous care.
Our safety barrier systems are stringently tested to meet all relevant safety standards including BSEN1991-1 & the latest guidelines as outlined in the Institution of Civil Engineers reports into the ’Inspection & Maintenance of Structures’. These include our patented ’flexible safety barrier systems’, which are designed to absorb impact that limits damage to both vehicles, plant & machinery. These out perform standard rigid posts in almost all situations
Our main markets are Car Parks, logistic depots & Warehouses where our distinguished client list includes Vodafone, Asda, Co-op, Sainsbury's, Tesco & Royal Bank of Scotland.
We are the acknowledged leaders in the design and manufacture of protection systems for a wide range of commercial and industrial applications. Part of the Hill & Smith Holdings Infrastructure Products Group, Berry Systems also offers a full supply, installation and maintenance service, innovative bespoke design specifications & on-site consultancy.
The main advantage of column mounted systems is that often they have little or no footprint in the parking bay thereby releasing more space for parking use. The barrier is mounted directly onto the structural columns with interim posts fitted if necessary, subject to the system chosen.
This makes them best suited for new build car parks so that designs can take into account the weight of the system and the forces and stresses transferred from the barrier to the columns in the event of impacts. The absence of fixings to the deck allows the use of thinner deck substrates and lighter deck materials.
Berry Systems offer three flexible systems - Brisafe, System 3 and Flexi-Panel plus a rigid steel section system.
Alternatively Berry can design a bespoke system to marry architectural aesthetics with British Standards performance criteria by utilising the wide range of experience, test data and expertise accumulated over the last 40 years.
Berry Systems offer a variety of Flexible, Semi-Flexible and Rigid systems to meet virtually any requirement. All have been independently tested to BS6399 and the latest recommendations from the Institution of Structural Engineers and the Institute of Civil Engineers. Any general perimeter barrier system must be capable of withstanding the 150kN impact defined in BS 6399 (excluding twice force areas and minimise any residual energy being passed onto the structure behind.
The choice of an effective perimeter edge protection is based on a number of variable factors:
- Space available in which to install a barrier system and minimise any encroachment into parking bay length
- Cladding/external facade detail to be protected and location in relation to the barrier
- Climbability of any barrier located in front of existing perimeter walls/facades
- Handrail/mesh infill system requirements, if any
- Edge detail in relation to suitable anchorage
- General aesthetical appearance
Berry Systems’ expertise in car park perimeters goes far beyond the spring steel safety barriers for which they are rightly renowned and encompasses the whole exterior envelope. Complete packages including cladding, curtain walling, perimeter barriers and pedestrian protection make Berry Systems the one stop choice for car park exteriors saving you time, materials and a lot of hassle!
Industry leading experience in the car park sector means you can be confident these systems meet the latest standards, requirements and relevant recommendations for car parks of all shapes and sizes.
