Race track events and its safety.

Protecting The Safety Of Drivers & Spectators

The design of crash fences prevents vehicles from leaving the course and hitting fixed objects or features that could become hazardous to spectators. They may also contain safety signs and warnings to communicate to drivers on potential threats like sharp corners lying ahead.

In the racing industry, safety is paramount. It’s critical that race track owners take any necessary precautions to protect the safety of their drivers and spectators.

Crash Fence for a Permanent Track

At Smith, we have extensive experience installing crash fencing at permanent race tracks. During a permanent crash fence installation, we will:

  • Collaborate with architects, designers, and engineers

  • Install the foundation for a crash fence substructure

  • Fabricate and install steel components, cabling, mesh, pedestrian gates, ARMCO gates, starter stands, and more

If your permanent track already features a crash fence, we can also modify it to meet current safety demands. This might involve extending the wheel fence height, adding cable, or installing new gates for vehicles and pedestrians.
