Efficient and stylish, floor to ceiling vertical cable safety barriers have become a popular means of ensuring fall safety on balconies, atria and so forth. While the effectiveness of such systems is clear, and their emerging popularity is welcome, specifiers should follow some basic rules to ensure the performance of the solution.
Barriers that are designed and installed without full consideration of factors like cable behaviour, the importance of connections, and so on can be problematic. And, depending on application, the consequences can render a barrier non-compliant.
Titled, ‘A Guide To Vertical Cable Barriers’, the InDesign Continued Professional Development (CPD) presentation is intended to help ensure you arrive at an appropriate design. Noting the limitations in the way the NCC and other regulations deal with such systems, the speakers outline how to meet best practice when it comes to the specification of Vertical Cable Barriers.
