Ask boom. for Help with Acquiring and Installing Barrier Systems

Barrier systems play an important role in safety and security at residential and commercial properties. South African legislation dictates that certain properties require balustrades and other barrier systems to be installed in order for the property to meet the applicable safety regulations and standards. The requirements for barrier systems in South Africa can be found in the National Building Regulations and proof of compliance must be provided at the time of application for building approval. Because barriers serve as critical safety features, strict legislation dictates their required strength and structural design aspects.

Barrier Systems Must Meet Certain Standards

Barrier systems must meet certain requirements and standards in terms of aspects like their height, load-bearing ability, materials used, and more. If you are installing barrier systems for the first time, it is prudent to get some advice and guidance from the professionals before you decide on and pay for barriers of any kind. At boom., we feature a range of barrier systems designed to the highest standards. All our barriers are designed and manufactured according to the current safety and quality regulations. It is important to realise that some barrier designs are not legal in certain instances. Take for example the popular stainless-steel balustrades with horizontal filler bars sold in South Africa. These are illegal for use in public places and are considered unsafe for areas that children have access to.
