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 featuring a unique quick-link connector for rapid connection and installation. 

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. 

There is also an option for a fence to be attached to BG800 to protect road workers from falling debris and lost loads from fast moving HGVs.

With four depots located around the UK and our in-house Operational Delivery Services team available for all types of installation, Highway Care can service all scales installations and even provide emergency call-outs in the event of an unforeseeable accident.
