A vertical column is one of the most important parts of any building structure. It is also one of the most exposed. Columns take on many forms, but all share the same inherent vulnerability and can be damaged by hits from moving vehicles. Car parks are probably one of the most notorious environments for this. From bad and irresponsible drivers to vehicular failure or loss of control, the columns that provide structural support to car parks face damage from potential collisions at any given time. This is why it is so vital that the columns that support the structure are properly defended with crash barriers or other types of protective installations.
Aside from supportive columns and pillars, there are other products such as signs and lampposts that are also vulnerable to being struck on a daily basis. Singular structures such are these seem to attract collisions even when they stand alone in a large area. There are many busy areas such as loading bays and industrial sites that have heavy vehicles driving back and forth all the time. Forklift trucks and similar vehicles can present great danger to structural and stand alone columns as well as machinery, equipment, and most importantly your employees and visitors. Accidents can occur despite the best intentions, but the installation of sufficient column protection and crash barriers can help to prevent damage and harm befalling your staff.
