A bridge parapet is a safety barrier that is installed on the edge of a bridge, retaining wall or similar structure with a vertical drop, providing protection for vehicles and pedestrians.
Parapets play an essential role in keeping people safe and have helped to prevent many serious incidents over the years.
Supplied worldwide, Varley and Gulliver’s bridge parapets are used in a variety of locations including roads, railways, ports, industrial settings, car parks and airports.
With containment levels N1, N2, H2 and H4a to EN 1317 and containment Levels TL3 and TL4 to the American standards, our parapets meet a range of requirements.
Our systems can also be clad with mesh or sheeted with a range of materials to prevent pedestrian access and for aesthetic reasons.
All our bridge parapets are compliant with the ‘Design Manual for Roads and Bridges – CD 377 Requirements for road restraint systems.’
