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.
