INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR A SAFER FUTURE

ARMORWIRE

A high performance tensioned cable barrier system consisting of unique ‘oval’ shaped steel posts. The oval shape giving the structural strength that ensures great performance and the smooth exterior profile

 

Slots within the posts hold the barrier cables at the required height and each post has a socketed concrete footing. This makes for easier installation and maintenance.

 

The system allows an impacting vehicle to be re-directed in a safe and predictable manner.
