RHINO-STOP® Sky-Edge Guardrail System


Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge guardrail is a zero-footprint carpark barrier system, which has been skilfully designed to conserve valuable floor space through the strategic positioning of its posts on the outer edge of the concrete substrate, allowing the full width of the deck to be utilised for parking or vehicle travel.

This intelligent carpark barrier system can be installed as a stand-alone post and rail configuration, or with balustrade and mesh infill attachments.

The modular design of Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge and its available attachments, allows the barrier system to be configured to suit various site requirements using standard components.

Features and Benefits

  • Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge is a fully modular carpark barrier that has been manufactured in accordance with Australian Building Code specifications and features 2m post spacing.
  • As a zero footprint carpark barrier system, Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge provides the option of a balustrade and anti-climb mesh infill, making it an ideal choice for site applications which require fall protection for pedestrians.
  • Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge is quick and easy to assemble due to its simplistic design which requires only 1 anchor bolt per post.
  • The energy absorbing technology used in Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge barrier prevents damage to the concrete substrate, preserving the system’s durability.
  • Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge carpark barrier comes with hot dip galvanised components (with the option of a powder-coated finish), reinforcing its stability and enhancing aesthetic appeal.
  • The versatile nature of Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge makes customised solutions possible for non-standard applications, if required.

How Rhino-Stop® Sky Edge Works

The defining features of Rhino-Stop® Sky Edge posts are the long cuts in the base plate which essentially break the plate into three fingers connected by a common stem.

The fingers allow the mounting of the post to occur in an upright fashion by enabling a separation from the anchor(s).

The Rhino-Stop® Sky Edge carpark barrier incorporates a unique patented yielding base plate that minimises the peak loads transferred to post anchors.

These base plates effectively absorb the kinetic energy of an impacting vehicle, reducing the forces transferred through the anchor bolts to prevent concrete substrate damage.

Upon impact from a vehicle or heavy load, a plastic hinge forms at the location where the fingers can be found on the post.

Once the post is mounted a backward rotation is set into motion, as the load capacity of the plastic hinge is designed to be less than the pull-out capacity of the anchor bolt.

The deflection of the system allows for greater load transfer to adjacent posts, thereby sharing the impact load from the vehicle – providing the highest level of protection from high speed impacts.

All Rhino-Stop® barriers are designed, manufactured and tested to comply with Australian and International Industry Standards. Rhino-Stop® Sky Edge complies with the 30 KN impact requirement of AS/NZS 1170.1 and adheres to off-street car parking recommendations for parking facilities pursuant to AS/NZS 2890.1.
