Local authorities, landowners and companies require a cost effective deterrent to prevent unauthorised parking of high-sided vehicles, with reference to Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) and (traveller’s) caravans in both private and public car parks and open spaces.
VAS can design and manufacture a height restrictor tailored to individual requirements, which stem from two basic yet invaluable solutions.
Goal Post Variant:
As the name suggests, the end result resembles a ‘football pitch’ goal post, however, the robust design is constructed from heavy-duty 100mm Square Hollow section (SHS) box, throughout.
It is available with a standard height clearance of 2 metres (6’6”) and can span a maximum clear width opening of 5 metres.
The hinged height restrictor allows unhindered access to the site as the horizontal cross beam can be unlocked from its specifically designed ‘catcher’ post and swung through 90° and locked in the open position by a separate catcher post.
The design incorporates an extruded aluminium horizontal cross beam, painted with a white polyester powder coating and a separate hanging ‘Nudge’ or strike bar.
All steel work is Hot-dipped galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461, as standard.
It is manufactured to a standard height clearance of 2 metres (6’6”) and can span a maximum clear width opening of up to 7 metres.
