Gatwick Airport benefits from a bespoke design of safety barrier from A-safe. The company's hexagonal Atlas barrier has been designed to replace steel structures which Gatwick was previously using for mast protection. I
A-Safe's range of barriers is sufficiently flexible to withstand impacts, exceeding the BAA standard 6-9 times. If hit by a vehicle, the barrier springs back into shape without bending or buckling. The polymer that is used in producing the barriers has high level absorption properties that ensure the airport benefits from long term, low cost maintenance and repair.
