Footbridge barriers are physical structures installed to prevent falls and ensure the safety of pedestrians.
These barriers typically consist of vertical posts or pillars connected by horizontal rails or panels, creating a barrier that separates the footbridge from the surrounding environment.
Footbridge barriers can be made from various materials such as steel, aluminium, or glass, and they can be designed in various styles and colours to complement the aesthetics of the footbridge.
Footbridge barriers play an essential role in preventing accidents and falls, particularly in high-traffic areas or footbridges that are located above water bodies or busy roads. They provide a physical barrier to prevent people from accidentally falling off the footbridge, and they also act as a deterrent to prevent intentional jumping or climbing.
In addition to providing safety, footbridge barriers can also enhance the visual appeal of the footbridge and make it more inviting for pedestrians.
With proper design and installation, footbridge barriers can create a sense of security and comfort for pedestrians, encouraging more people to use the footbridge and improving overall pedestrian safety.
