BG800® TEMPORARY BARRIER, RAPIDLY DEPLOYED, MINIMUM DEFLECTION

BG800® TEMPORARY BARRIER, RAPIDLY DEPLOYED, MINIMUM DEFLECTION

EZY-GUARD 

Ezy-GuardTM guardrail crash barrier imposes lower forces to an impacting vehicle than traditional guardrail crash barriers. As the barrier deflects, the vehicle impact energy is dissipated in a way that reduces occupant risk.

 

The lightweight, ductile Z-posts and clever sliding carriage allow the W-beam to effectively detach and provide a forgiving impact, reducing ride-down deceleration forces and minimising vehicle damage.

 

The W-beam remains properly engaged with the vehicle, even when detached from the Z-posts.

TEMPORARY & PERMANENT VEHICLE RESTRAINT SYSTEMS

Features & Benefits

  • Uses 40% less steel than conventional steel guardrail barriers, improving material and freighting costs as well as manual handling risk.

  • Fewer components make the system faster to install and allows a reduced maintenance inventory.

  • The best ASI rating (A) - as a passenger, you are less likely to suffer injury due to a softer impact.

  • Tested against the American MASH Specification, the testing is more applicable for the larger SUV vehicles found within the Middle East. European testing does not give you this reassurance.

  • Clever system design allows the W-beam to operate and stay consistently engaged with the impacting vehicle. The SUV is less likely to ride over the barrier.

  • The EZY-Carriage TM eliminates the traditional use of large blocking pieces and rail stiffener plates that could potentially cause injury due to debris scatter post collision.

  • Fully compliant to MASH TL-3 & NCHRP 350 TL-4, giving the designer the confidence to use the barrier and reduce risk.
