BS 6180 2011 gives the latest recommendations and guidance for the construction of barriers in and around buildings. The standard applies to temporary and permanent barriers designed to protect people from hazards, restrict access or control vehicle traffic. BS 6180 outlines requirements for protective, crash and crush barriers as well as those that impose a speed limit of up to 16km/h (4.44m/s or 10miles/h). The standard does not apply to areas or buildings designed for spectator sports, construction sites or barriers to protect children younger than 24 months.
BS 6180:2011 provides a comprehensive guide to the design, structure, height and strength of barriers. This includes recommendations on all materials used such as aluminium and copper alloys, concrete, plastic steel, stone and wood. Compliance with BS 6180 will guide you through the process of designing and constructing barriers, including measuring safety, reinforcing structures and testing corrosive or flammable qualities.
BS 6180:2011 replaces BS 6180:1999.
