RMS Pedestrian Fencing

Pedestrian Fencing is used to channel pedestrians to safe crossing areas, preventing adhoc access of pedestrians to roadways at dangerous points. It is manufactured to NSW Roads & Maritime (RMS) specifications and Australian Standards. This pedestrian safety barrier is installed on road medians or verges and can withstand low to moderate impacts.

Summit Fencing is one of Australia’s largest stockist of the Guard-R Fencing Type 1 Pedestrian Fencing and Type 5 Pedestrian Fencing, offering next business day dispatch for stock items. We deliver Australia wide, including QLD, NSW and Victoria.

The pedestrian fencing design ensures both the safety of pedestrians and the safety of motorists. Each panel is created using solid steel members and is joined to posts with nut and bolt connections. This allows the fencing panels to collapse as an entire panel if impacted, reducing the potential for detachment of the individual balusters which could impale the vehicle or pedestrians.

Verge vs Median Panels

The difference between Verge & Median panel designs is the pattern of the centre bars. These are angled to provide drivers with an unobstructed view of pedestrians or oncoming traffic.
