When it comes to starting any traffic management project, road safety works, organising an outdoor event or managing large pedestrian situations; priority must be given to keeping the volume of anticipated traffic moving!
That and providing safety to all, and being compliant with the regulations at all times, of course!
Chapter 8 fencing is vital for safe pedestrian management in busy and crowded areas, such as any outdoor events, football matches, traffic management zones and more, making them suitable for a range of projects and all available to be customised depending on your requirements.
The benefits of Chapter 8 Barriers are such that you will be able to carry out your project effectively and efficiently without it adversely affecting your teams and the general public.
How Chapter 8 fencing will benefit your project
Due to its flexibility in fitting and installation, Chapter 8 barriers…
- provide that temporary and short-term solution many companies look for, for their projects
- prevent the public from gaining access to restricted areas
- help support queuing systems
- are basic in design
- easy to assemble

Range of Chapter 8 Fencing
There is a wide range of Chapter 8 fencing available and what you choose will depend on what it is being used for. For example, the style of Chapter 8 fencing will vary between what is required at a football match, to what is needed to be placed around road works and excavations.

Providing solutions to temporary issues
Chapter 8 pedestrian barriers are used in a wide range of environments by traffic management companies, civil engineers, building contractors, event organisers, and anyone who requires reliable, robust and flexible fencing.
All designed to guard against potential dangers, some Chapter 8 fencing (plastic) is also manufactured from recycled plastic making it environmentally friendly, hardwearing and reusable.
There is full guidance on different designs of Chapter 8 barriers which you can apply, which can be found in the Traffic Signs Manual, Chapter 8. However, it’s important to note that every situation is different, and it is up to the company and management team in charge to adopt, adapt and develop, the right traffic management solutions to keep traffic moving and to suit the real-world conditions which you find yourself in.
Chapter 8 Barriers:
- Provide reflective panels providing maximum visibility
- Offer maximum safety
- Keep traffic flowing as freely as possible
- Take up minimum road space (especially taking into consideration busy periods throughout the day, public transport needs, emergency services, etc.)
- Provide non-permanent fixings
- Offer link pin systems and plastic clip solutions
- Are stable in all environmental conditions
- Are completely stackable, offering ease of transport due to their lightweight design
Chapter 8 pedestrian fencing should optimise work, safety, and efficiency while minimising traffic and road user congestion, delay, and inconvenience.
Your aim should be to use such fencing systems to guide road users, and pedestrians safely past obstructions, form orderly queuing systems, and keep people out of restricted access zones, all in temporary situations.
