Vismax High Visibility Pedestrian Guardrails
Visimax has been the leading high visibility guardrail for many years, establishing the principal of a see through post wide angle splays, non blocking flat sections and splays of bars tailored to precise visibility angles to maximise transparency.
Visimax also offers the option of a visibility gap to increase dramatically transparency and provides the ultimate in vision, safety and transparency.
Visimax is available with our wide range of ornamental posts to create a wide choice of high visibility coupled with an aesthetic impact.
Levels of visibility in conjunction with attractive ornamental posts can be increased by providing see through posts with slots cut out, which in turn provides transparency through the panels and posts.
Visimax, Engineered For Safety
In the design of Visimax, safety was given top priority. This is why Visimax saves three times as many accidents as ordinary guardrails. The reason is simple, other Pedestrian Guardrail Systems block visibility just a short distance ahead of the driver. A small child about to cross the road can be completely hidden. Visimax is effective in restricting pedestrian access without the loss of visibility. Two key innovations:
- Rows of bars offset at a shallow angle
- See through posts
Visimax provides three times greater visibility distance than any other standard guardrail. Drivers therefore not only see children and other potential hazards, such as cars emerging from side roads, they also have time to avoid collision.
Maximum Transparency, Visimax
The Visimax design, construction and choice of infill layout coupled with the option of a visibility gap provide the ultimate transparency for obtaining the maximum vision possible at all sight angles. This is achieved by:
- The use of 70 x 8 flat horizontals which provide increased visibility when compared to a standard 50 x 30 RHS section
- The 70 mm wide sections produce larger visibility angles which increase transparency
- Offering a choice of V2 V4 V8 angle splays to maximise the visibility of the panels from all sight angles
- The superior transparency provided by the sight gap option
The use of visimax throughout the UK when replacing standard guardrails has shown a reduction in both pedestrian and vehicular accidents in excess of 50% improving road safety and reducing pedestrian and driver casualties.
