Parapet Support

We can provide a BBA certified parapet support system for structures that require Normal Containment vehicle impact protection.

Our system comprises a precast concrete coping which is supported on an in-situ reinforced concrete base slab. The system has been dynamically tested for use with Normal (N1/N2) Containment Vehicle parapets.

Parapet anchorages are cast into the coping element enabling the parapet to be attached on site with no drilling being required.

 

The parapet support system can also be used for pedestrian parapets and environmental barriers.

Where high containment (H4a) parapets are required we can design the Reinforced Earth retaining structures to accommodate the parapet impact loads. We can also provide assistance in the design of high containment parapet support slabs.
