Restraint Systems

Saferoad supply, install and repair all types of Vehicle Restraint System (RRS) that are fully compliant with BS EN 1317 and non-proprietary systems. We currently have our own suite of VRS (Megarail) that has been approved by the Highways Agency. This suite of systems can be installed in the majority of situations, but we are continuously researching and developing new innovative systems to compliment or improve our product. This includes a P4 terminal that only has two posts, can be used as a dual sided P4 and in the event of an impact can be replaced in as little as 20 minutes, so keeping installation and maintenance costs down. Because we actually install our own products and do not simply supply, we are in a position to give first class technical advice to all our clients.

 
Safety Barriers

Megarail

MegaRail brand has established itself as a highly effective, compatible and economical vehicle restraint system. MegaRail systems are quick and easy to install, maintain and repair thanks to the modular construction with few standard elements. We supply MegaRail Systems from N(normal) containment through to H(high) containment.

The  Megarail advantages at a glance:

  • Suitable MegaRail systems for all containment levels
  • The effective area from W1 to W5
  • Standard system heights of 700 - 1250 mm
  • Simple installation and repair
  • Highly economical
  • Extensive compatibility

Transitions

Transitions are the connection between two safety barrier of differing cross-sections or differing lateral rigidity, allowing for the continuous variation in containment capacity.

MegaFlex

  • Transition to MegaGuard
  • Transition to Aluminium Parapet
  • Transition to Steel Parapet

The Megaflex transition is Saferoad UK's EN 1317 tested and Highways Agency approved transition which allows our N2 and H2 vehicle parapet systems and Megarail systems to be connected together whilst, ensuring that they contain and redirect errant vehicles in a safe and correct manner.

Upon selecting our tested and approved transitions into one of Saferoad UK Parapet systems, we can safely guarantee that errant vehicles are contained and safely redirected this is when coupled with our Megarail systems and our selection of P4/P1 terminals.

Saferoad UK's range of VRS products enables you start and finish your scheme without the need to seek other systems giving you an end-to-end solution and because our transitions use standard components this ensures that they can be easily installed and repaired.

 
Terminals

                                                  SafeEnd P4

                                                     Primus P2

SafeEnd

P1: a ramped terminal that can be used

  • on roads with a speed limit less than 50mph on approach and departure ends of barrier.
  • on roads with speed limits that exceed 50mph only on departure end.  

P2 : used on roads with speed limits of less than 50mph

P4 : used on roads with speed limits in excess of 50mph.

"New" Primus P2

The 8.22 m long Terminal Primus P2 is a tested start and end terminal that can be used instead of the usual 12 m long turn-down end. In contrast with the turn-down end, sliding is effectively prevented. The vehicle is safely slowed down in case of an accident by the deformation elements and redirected to the road. This is particularly important in places where space is limited and the required length at the hazard point can not be achieved.
The Terminal Primus P2 has proven its effectiveness in countless applications.
· Replaces turn-down ends and excludes sliding
of vehicles
· Economical and environmentally friendly
· Fast repair via pre-assembled components

 
Crash Cushions

                     Crash Guard Series

                         "NEW"   Primus Series

The CrashGuard series systems meet the requirements of the highest performance class of 70mph as well as for 50mph.

The CrashGuard consists of three, five or six deformation chambers connected to each other which can have a crash barrier attached to each side. In the event of an impact, the energy is quickly and completely absorbed by the deformation tubes located within the chambers. The impact energy is collected by the CrashGuard in a controlled manner and the risk of serious injury for the vehicle occupants is reduced.

Advantages:

  • Safety Standard according to en1317
  • Reduce risk of personal damage: system contains the vehicle and guides it back
  • Rapid assembly with a prefinished foundation plate
  • Maintenance free
  •  Quick repairs possible with the UK-wide installation service

The BOS Primus 2a is a vehicle restraint system,
with which individual obstacles such as trees, signposts or electronic control columns can be protected.

With the help of the
so-called double-rail extension, even long and surface-like obstacles such as bridge piers or groups of trees can be effectively protected.

The system is symmetrical and can be used on both roadsides. The deformation elements are already integrated in the two interconnected balanced halves. Use of the BOS Primus 2a has proven itself for decades.

  • Works free-standing and therefore completely independent.
  • Significant reduction in the serious consequences of accidents into obstacles (especially trees)
  • Economical and environmentally friendly, because long guardrail installations are avoided.
  • Flexible adaptation to local conditions and quick repair through modular design.
 

With leading brands such as MegaRail, SafeStar, Vik and Birsta, we cover a wide range of containment levels. In end terminals, we offer SafeEnd, as one of the first end-terminals that has been tested in accordance with the standard EN 1317-7. Hence, it represents the next generation of energy absorbing terminals.

The main function of crash cushions is to prevent serious injury to car passengers when crashing into static objects. Our own CrashGuard series have the highest level of certification and offers a wide range of sizes, depending on the area it should secure. Our bridge parapets combine modern design with a high level of safety, and are well suited for use in areas with high demands for aesthetics. The modular structure of the parapets contributes to quick installation and low cost.
