The BG800™ portable steel barrier is the latest in road barrier technology, designed to protect both motorists and construction workers. Rigorously tested to meet the highest demands throughout the world, the BG800 has achieved the highest performance levels of any portable steel barrier up to NCHRP350 TL-3 or TL-4, MASH TL-3 and Security PAS 68.
The BG800’s unique stepped profile has proven to reduce damage to both vehicle and barrier during impact, minimising the need for repair or replacement. During impact, the BG800 provides an extremely shallow exit angle for the vehicle, minimising the risk of secondary accidents.
BG800’s galvanised steel structure offers an expected life cycle of 25 years and with its exceptional durability, the need for replacement through handling or impact damage, unlike similar portable barriers, is greatly reduced.
At only 90kg per metre and with 6 or 12m modules available, up to 144m can be loaded on a truck bed, providing high savings in transportation when compared with similar concrete or steel systems. In addition, BG800’s ‘Quick-Link’ connection allows for rapid installation, at speeds of up to 300m per hour with just three operatives – offering clients and contractors a vast saving in both time and labour resources when compared to conventional high performance portable systems.
