ENCAT is an Australian manufacturer of BCA Compliant Pedestrian Fencing. We can supply pedestrian fencing to councils, shopping centres, schools or fencing contractors from our stock held in Australia.
Our BCA Compliant pedestrian fencing all the features of our RMS pedestrian fencing products, with the added bonus of being able to be used as a certified balustrade. This becomes particularly important for applications that require BCA compliance and certification.
This product is ideal for retaining walls adjacent to traffic, especially in schools where protecting students is critical. Standard pedestrian fencing has gaps greater than 125mm, therefore it is not BCA compliant.
The Building Code of Australia regulations state that a balustrade must
- Be at least 1m high
- Have no openings greater than 125mm
- Withstand loads as per AS1170.1
- No climbing elements between 150 and 760mm
Originally designed by the Roads and Maritime Services, pedestrian fencing is designed to prevent pedestrians walking onto or crossing a road at a mid point. It can change the walking patterns of pedestrians along roads or busy footpaths. There are six different styles of pedestrian fence each with the same key benefit of separating pedestrians from vehicular traffic. The main difference is in the aesthetics of each type.
As soon as new pedestrian fencing is installed, it changes walking patterns immediately, the physical barrier forces different movement patterns in the area. The other benefit of using pedestrian fencing is in the case of a vehicular accident it can help arrest some of the energy from the moving vehicle by deforming on impact.

Additional information about ENCAT's BCA Compliant RMS Pedestrian Fencing
ENCAT is Australia’s largest manufacturer and supplier for all types of Pedestrian Fences and we make the fencing in our factory in NSW. We actively supply commercial fencing contractors, civil works contractors, councils or government department tenders that need a safety fence installed on for roads. ENCAT can design and manufacture Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, Type 4, Type 5 and Type 6 fence types. These products are commonly referred to as an RMS Pedestrian Fence or Pedestrian Safety Fence Panel. We only manufacture fence panels that are as specified by the NSW RMS or Roads Waterways Transport for NSW.
The purpose of a pedestrian fence
The function of this type of fence construction is to help create safer movement patterns of roadside users. They are a physical barrier that we make using 100% recycled Australian steel that are used to direct pedestrians to safe crossing areas. It stops people from accessing areas of the road corridor where they may interact with vehicular traffic in an uncontrolled manner.
Typical pedestrian fencing installations
The most common use of pedestrian fencing is around shopping centres where people will try and cross the road to get to their car parking or roadside stores. It is not a road safety barrier and cannot be used in lieu of a road safety barrier. It is not designed to deflect or arrest an errant vehicle or to prevent injury to pedestrians by errant vehicles although it should deform on impact. If the fence panels have been designed and manufactured correctly they should collapse as a whole panel when impacted that minimises the detachment of individual elements, and features a staggered layout of the balusters allowing motorists and pedestrians approaching on opposite sides of the fence to see each other.
What are the variations of fencing?

- RMS type one pedestrian fencing
