A detached piece of fencing nearly harms mother & child
A detached steel bar speared into the vehicle of the mother & child. They were extremely lucky not to be injured in this incident.
Non penetrating, defective welds, as seen in this video are evidence that the fencing was non-compliant.
Pedestrian fencing with high quality welding
In the photo above one of ENCAT’s pedestrian fencing panels was struck by a vehicle. It deformed correctly and the panel didn’t harm any pedestrians. The bars on the right hand side had to be cut by emergency vehicles on the scene of the accident.
This is an example of the quality of our RMS Pedestrian Fencing that we manufacture and supply in Australia. We make sure every small detail is looked at, including the quality of our welding to ensure our fencing panels deform as they are designed to.
Pedestrian fencing panels that have failed
In the example above you can see the pedestrian fencing panel has failed when it was impacted with a vehicle. The bars have broken from the frame rather than deforming. This can be due to the incorrect materials or poor welding from the manufacturing process.
Pedestrian fencing posts that have failed
Here is another example where the pedestrian fencing posts have failed, they have sheared off at the weld. It is another example where the pedestrian fencing manufacturer hasn’t welded the posts correctly with welds that were undersized and didn’t have the right penetration to bond the elements together correctly.
High quality Pedestrian fencing that is RMS compliant
ENCAT was chosen as the pedestrian fencing supplier to install fencing panels for Wollongong University in NSW. In the example below, you can see how our panels have deformed correctly after a vehicle drove into them.
The welds did not fail and the panel frame and posts withstood the impact. This was only possible due to the high-quality construction and manufacturing processes that we use when we make any type of RMS Pedestrian Fence Panel like the popular Type 1 or Type 5 panels.
