The durability of a steel barrier and the ballasting weight of concrete come together in the HV2 hybrid freestanding temporary safety barrier from Saferoads.
The HV2 is half the weight per metre of a typical concrete barrier, according to the Australian manufacturer Saferoads. The system has passed MASH TL-4, 10T at 90km/h completely freestanding with deflection of 2.2m.
The company says that because of its size - 5.8m long and rotationally symmetrical – and that it needs no additional parts, the HV2 is one of the fastest barriers to deploy.
Saferoads is also celebrating 25 years of business and is settling into a purpose-built factory in Pakenham, Victoria State.
