SMA launches urban barrier safety cover

We've got it covered: SMA's Roberto Impero

Safety-aware motorcyclists will welcome the newest addition to urban barrier protection devices from Italian manufacturer SMA.

The company’s reflective aluminium safety cover for its SMA 50 City short barrier was launched this year and can be a life-saver, said Stefano Caterino, head of marketing.

Instead of a motorcyclist or cyclist hitting the barrier end, the person stands a better chance of glancing off at an angle and sustaining far fewer injuries than hitting the right angles of the barrier.

It is a simple and obvious solution to such a frightening prospect for motorcyclists the world over, he said. Since its launch, there has been great interest shown by authorities, particularly in Taiwan because, Caterino believes, there is a large number of urban motorcyclists.

The SMA 50 City barrier itself is designed to protect at impacts of around 50km/h. It’s extremely short - just 900mm – and is meant to protect and not detract from the aesthetics of its surroundings. It is mounted in front of fixed road furniture including light poles as well as the start of raised islands between lanes.

Stand: 1.322
