Italian firm Margaritelli says that its new vehicle restraint system offers high safety levels for vehicle occupants. This barrier system is designed to meet the N2BL-02 requirement within the European EN1317 standard.
The new barrier is said to deliver high protection levels to occupants of both light and heavy vehicles, having been extensively tested. Performance in both impact severity and deformation ratings were said to be high.
The product achieved an impact severity AI rating of 0.8, putting it in the A class. At the same time, its deformation performance was within a working width of 1.65m, allowing it a W5 rating. The system features a 4m post spacing, which is said to boost installation speed while reducing costs in comparison with some products on the market.
With its open design and laminated wood exterior, it is also claimed to deliver aesthetic appeal, suiting it to use in environmentally sensitive areas where a location-sensitive appearance may be required. Structural strength is provided due to the use of high quality steel, with improved resistance to corrosion also said to maximise working life.
