INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR A SAFER FUTURE

EZY-GUARD™ HIGH CONTAINMENT

Crash tested up to MASH TL-4,  imposes lower forces to an impacting vehicle than traditional guardrails.

 

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 Ezy-HC-Carriage™ allow the Thrie-beam to effectively detach and provide a forgiving impact, reducing ride-down deceleration forces and minimising vehicle damage.

 

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

Application

The Z-post profile shields post edges from vulnerable road users and provides sectional strength when driving through difficult ground conditions. 


The Ezy-HC-Carriage™ is used to secure the Thri-beam rails to the Z-posts and eliminate the requirement for blocking pieces and rail stiffening plates that cause injury due to debris scatter.

 

The EZY-Guard HC™ Thri-beam stays constantly engaged with any impacting vehicles, showing excellent containment from cars through to trucks.

 

Benefits

  • Less steel than conventional steel guardrail barriers -  improving cost and material handling

  • Fewer components - faster installation and reduced inventory

  • The best ASI rating (A) - improving passenger safety

  • Tested against the American MASH Specification - applicable for the larger SUV vehicles found within the Middle East. 

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

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

  • All components are hot dip galvanized for durability

  • Post is below top of the rail - improving safety for vulnerable road users

  • Adjustable height carriage available - compensate for ashphalt resurfacing
