On display at the company’s stand, the Safence 4RC-96 cable barrier is showing off its prestigious International Environmental Product Declaration credentials, issued by the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, a public research university in Stockholm, Sweden, and the country’s largest technical university.

An EPD is given based on an objective report that tells the lifecycle story of a product. It provides information about a product's impact on the environment, such as global warming potential, smog creation, ozone depletion and water pollution. The quality mark communicates to buyers what a product is made of and how it impacts the environment across its entire lifecycle.

The Safence 4RC-96 barrier not only has the smallest environmental footprint on the market but also demonstrates exceptionally low occupant risk, all the while maintaining a low price. All this makes Safence 4RC-96 the world’s first fully EPD compliant and assessed guardrail system.
