ArmorWire is a high performance tensioned cable barrier system consisting of unique ‘oval’ shaped steel posts.


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.

User-friendly cable barrier with minimal components (socket, post, post cap and cable) -  easy installation & after-impact repair.

3 and 4 cable options available no need for multiple system designs.

Variable post spacing enables cost versus performance decisions to be made for a more economic installation.



  • Optional terminal end, NCHRP 350  TL-3 tested and approved (without snagging vaulting or ramping issues) -  preventing dangerous vehicle behaviour

  • Standard terminal end providing a low cost solution

  • Socketed system for ease and speed of repair after impact

  • Demonstrable reduction in sand build-up - keeping roads safer and reducing maintenance effort and cost.

  • High-tension system provides exceptionally low deflection and safe test ASI rating (A). Assuring Safety in a tighter margin 

  • All posts are hot-dip galvanised to EN1461 (Powder coated is optional)
