Berry Systems, a member of the Hill & Smith Infrastructure Products Group manufactures, supplies & installs barrier protection systems and associated products for off-road use. Berry Systems also supplies and installs cladding systems for car parks as well as TopDeck Modular Car Parks.

Our Barrier systems are stringently tested to meet all relevant safety standards including BS EN1991-1-1 2002 and BS EN1991-1-7 : 2006  and the latest guidelines as outlined in the Institution of Civil Engineers reports into the ’Inspection & Maintenance of Structures’. These include our patented ’flexible barrier systems’, which are designed to absorb impact that limits damage to both vehicles, plant & machinery. These outperform standard rigid posts in almost all situations.

Our main markets are multi-storey car parks, logistic depots and warehouses where our distinguished client list includes Asda, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Morrisons and The Co-Op.

Safety Barriers for Car Parks:

Car Park Perimeter Systems - Column Mounted

Berry Systems offer three flexible Column Mounted Systems and one Rigid System. In addition, bespoke systems can be designed to marry architectural aesthetics with the necessary performance criteria.

Car Park Perimeter Systems - Floor Mounted

Any general perimeter barrier system must be capable of withstanding the 150kN impact defined in BS EN1991-1-1 and minimise any residual energy being passed onto the structure behind.

Car Park Split Level Protection

Split level protection is to prevent vehicles and pedestrians falling through the open spaces in between floor levels.

Car Park Ramps

Ramp barriers are usually only required to take glancing blow impacts from vehicles, hence the 1/2 force requirement in BS EN1991-1-1 Annexe B. In situations where pedestrians could also use the ramp, a handrail and mesh infill system should be added.

Car Park Column & Pipework Protection Systems

All Berry Systems’ column protection products cater for various sizes and can be tailored to your precise needs.

Car Park Wall Protection

It is important that Structures are adequately protected to both minimise damage from traffic flow and, more safety critically, avoid materials being displaced and falling onto pedestrians or vehicles below.

Car Park Cladding:

Using the years of experience in the car park market, Berry Systems have developed a design, supply and installation service for cladding, curtain walling and glazing for multi-storey car parks providing a one stop shop for the complete external envelope.

Safety Barriers for Industry:

Warehouse Racking Protection

Damage to racking is expensive to repair and can have immediate implications on working capacity. Berry Systems offers a range of rigid and flexible solutions to help eliminate these problems.

Pedestrian Walkways

Berry Handrail systems for all pedestrian walkways. They are easy to install, made of lightweight components which delineate a safe and easy route to emergency exits or to avoid dangerous machinery or traffic areas.

Loading Bays

With the potential mix of vehicles in a loading bay, it is hardly surprising that up to 25% of industrial accidents occur in this area. The correct protection system is vital to minimise this potential. In addition to barriers and bollards, Berry Systems also supply and install wheel guides, dock rollers, kerb stoppers and other loading bay safety products.

Service Yards and Access Roads

The Berry Spring Steel Buffer range of products has been independently tested for vehicles ranging from 1.5 tonnes to 40 tonnes impacting at up to 10mph (4.5 m/sec). A range of speed restraints for cars and HGVs are also available.

TopDeck Modular Car Park Construction:

TopDeck Modular Car Parks can solve your parking problem. By incorporating Speed-Build Technology a TopDeck Modular Car park can be erected over the top of your existing car park to increase parking capacity. Disruption to existing parking is minimised and can often be partially or even wholly maintained during the short build period.

Stratford City East London

June 2018

LOCATION - STRATFORD CITY, EAST LONDON

DESCRIPTION - MULTI-STOREY CAR PARKS FOR SHOPPING MALL

CLIENT - WESTFIELD

ARCHITECTS - BUCHAN GROUP INTERNATIONAL
MAIN CONTRACTOR - SECURE PARKING

INSTALLED BY - BERRY SYSTEMS

SYNOPSIS
Vehicle and pedestrian safety barriers for edge protection on perimeters, ramps and other areas in three multi-storey car parks at new shopping mall adjacent to the London Olympic Park.

SAFE PARKING AT WESTFIELD STRATFORD
Berry Systems installed one of their largest ever car park safety barrier projects at Westfield Stratford City with over 7 kilometres of Berry Beam barrier, all mounted on Berry’s impact absorbing spring steel buffers.

The £1.5bn Westfield Stratford City complex covers an area of 1.9 square miles and houses 300 retail outlets, 70 food outlets, 3 hotels, a multiplex cinema, bowling alley and casino. It also has 5000 parking spaces across 2 integral and 1 adjacent multi-storey
car parks. They have achieved the Safer Parking Scheme Park Mark status and aim to provide an excellent parking experience with
innovative systems such as their Findmycar phone app and red/green LED indicators on each parking bay.

With that attention to detail it’s not surprising that the safety barriers were very carefully specified by architects Buchan Group
International.

The car park structures are metal framed with concrete decks with an exterior expanded metal mesh surround and cladding. All floors have
Berry safety beams mounted on their RB1X and GH spring steel buffers to provide full perimeter protection to BS 6399 and BS6180 as well as meeting the latest recommendations of the Institution of Structural Engineers (ISE) and the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE).

All the ramps in the two overground car parks have Berry Beam barriers many of them curved to match the varying radius of the ramps. On tighter bends and at the ramps exits chevron signs have been mounted directly to the barriers to give drivers a visual warning.

The smaller, underground car park is on two levels with concrete ramp barriers. However the ramp returns and split level areas are all protected by Berry Barriers mounted on RB1X spring steel buffers with handrail extensions and anti-climb mesh.

Berry Barriers Protect at New Heathrow Terminal 2 Multi Storey Car Park

January 2016

Berry Barriers Protect at New Heathrow Terminal 2 Multi Storey Car Park

A revised design for the new Heathrow Terminal 2 multi storey car park called for a floor depth of just 150mm comprising a 60mm deep slab with 90mm structural topping. However, and there’s always a however, a traditional rigid safety barrier post needs fixing with 4 bolts each to a depth of 170mm. Obviously these couldn’t be used so contractors Laing O’Rourke turned to barrier specialists Berry Systems to provide a solution and appropriate perimeter barriers for the 6 decks and the spiral entrance and exit ramps. Over many years Berry Systems have developed a range of flexible spring steel barriers that ‘give’ on impact. This not only reduces damage to both the barrier and an impacting vehicle but crucially reduces the pull out loading on the anchorage by 50% or more. This in turn allows post fixing to be achieved by using only a single bolt embedded to a depth of merely 110mm - a depth achievable into the new slabs. The specification was completed with Berry Beam safety rails to provide a more attractive appearance than the well known “Armco” style. Post extensions provided mountings for a pedestrian handrail at 1100mm high with integral anti-climb mesh where needed. The thin slabs were developed by Bison Manufacturing and are the thinnest precast concrete planks produced to date in the UK. They led to many benefits which considerably reduced the construction programme. It also allowed 6 floors in the usual height of 5, increasing capacity to 1340 spaces. But perimeter protection would have proved problematical without the expertise of Berry Systems. Their experience in producing barriers curved to fit spiral ramps was also important as these have to be carefully planned to ensure the right section is available in the right place at the right time throughout the installation programme - and fits the radius required. The £2.5bn redevelopment of Terminal 2 is central to the overall strategy for the future of Heathrow and crucial to this was the construction of the car park that acts as the Terminal’s front door. Heathrow T2 programme close-out lead Andy Weber explained.

“Unless you come and go by train, you’ll see some element of the car park – it’s not just for car drivers. “It’s a big part of our passenger experience – the top deck is the departures forecourt and the ground level is the arrivals forecourt.” The total project includes the main Terminal 2 building, a 522-metre satellite pier, an energy centre and cooling station as well as the 1,340 space car park.
