Sustainability: Looking Good, Serving Well

The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) has added a section on sustainable design – “Sustainable ASLA” – to its website to stress the advantages of building for integrated, environmentally aware and people-pleasing settings. PRO Barrier commends the architects for this important emphasis.

It brings up the fact that we have the same sort of sustainable, aesthetic values built into our approach to barrier design. We refer you to “How Important are Aesthetics?,” the section of our website that discusses how barriers can, and should, become part of their settings, not stand-out irritants.

We can, for instance, finish an Arrestor or Lightfoot barrier in any one of hundreds of colors or patterns. When these barriers are down, the are virtually out-of-sight; when they are up, they are inobtrusive.

As we say, and we think ASLA would approve: “Too many vehicle barriers are ugly, overly obtrusive, and give a building or facility entrance an unappealing, fortress-like look. PRO Barrier offers good-looking, aesthetic vehicle access control barriers.
