BG800® TEMPORARY STEEL BARRIER

Highway Care's BG800® temporary steel barrier is a leading, rapidly deployable, low deflection vehicle restraint system (VRS) in the UK market. Along with its success in the UK, BG800® was the first temporary steel barrier introduced overseas and has continued to be a primary choice of road barrier system.

Made from galvanised steel and features a unique quick-link connector for rapid connection and installation. All at competitive rates delivered from our strategically located depots.

Accepted for use on Highways England roads BG800® offers an energy absorbing feature, which when hit, results in minimal damage to both errant vehicles and the barrier itself due to its distinguished stepped profile design.

Standards, Testing & Performance

The BG800® temporary steel barrier has been tested in accordance with EN1317 and meets N2 W2, N2 W5, H2 W8 performance standards. Also successfully tested to NCHRP 350 TL-1, TL-2, TL-3, TL-4 and MASH TL-3.

Supply & Installation

With three depots located around the UK, Highway Care can service small up to large scale installations and provide emergency call-outs in the rare event of an unforeseeable accident.

BG800® can be hired directly from Highway Care in both 6 m and 12 m sections, resulting in rapid installation. Our temporary steel barrier will be delivered, installed and maintained by our highly trained in-house operations team. The standard BG800® requires anchoring to the ground at each end of a run.

Operations and Capabilities

At Highway Care our operational teams are at the very heart of our business. Without our skilled and experienced operational staff, we would not safely deliver the many projects we undertake each year on the UK's highways. See here for more>>
