Versatility the key for new Road Runner from Border Barriers
Malcolm Chalmers with the self-weighted Road Runner from Border Barriers, is an innovative and highly mobile temporary barrier
Border Barriers Systems has developed the highly versatile Road Runner, which is designed for quick situations in temporary delineation applications. The product can be used in a wide array of applications including inner city areas, street works, airports, car parks, pedestrian safety and major events.
The highly mobile units are designed for fast deployment and weigh in at just 22.5kg apiece, with a handle at one end and wheels at the other making them easy to move. Mobility is a key function of the design and managing director Philip Armstrong explained: “The Road Runner’s modelled after a wheeled suitcase.”
The units measure 1.1m long by 0.6m high and 0.36m wide. The Road Runner can be used in freezing conditions or in applications with no water availability, due to its self-weighted design and Armstrong added: “It’s rounded so it doesn’t catch the wind.”
This ergonomically designed product is manufactured from 92% recycled materials and the units are interlocking with a design that allows 40° angles between each unit. The Road Runner units are said to be durable for a long working life and offer high visibility, with a choice of red and white colours for the upper part as well as a black base.
The lightweight design means users can deploy large numbers of the units quickly. Malcolm Chamber, group sales manager said: “The wheels can be replaced if necessary and you can get 30 on a pallet stacked 10 high.”
