We have a wide range of barrier posts suitable for car parks and other areas where temporary barriers are useful.  The barrier posts below include sprung loaded, retractable, removable, drop-down and standard barrier posts.

The MAJOR is a solidly constructed retractable post that is Hot Dip Galvanised on all models for maximum service life. Standard red/white and yellow/black paint finishes are also available. The semi-automatic version features a built in gas strut that enables it to rise effortlessly out of its housing when unlocked, whilst the manual version has to be raised by hand. The post section is easily replaced if accidentally damaged.

Installation & Maintenance:
It should be established that the area for installation is not subject to flooding. Penetrating dirt and contamination should be removed at least every six months and all moving parts cleaned and greased. This will ensure smooth operation and a long service life.
