BarrierGuard 800 - Steel Safety Barrier

Portable & Permanent Steel Barrier

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, BG800 has achieved the HIGHEST PERFORMANCE levels of any portable steel barrier for both US testing (NCHRP 350) and European testing (EN1317) – achieving TL-3, TL-4, N2 and H2 criteria.

Its unique stepped profile has proven to reduce damage to both vehicle and barrier during impact, minimising the need for repair or replacement.   During impact, 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 requirement 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 216m can be loaded on a 2.4m x 12.0m truck bed, providing HIGH SAVINGS in transportation when compared with similar concrete or steel systems.  In addition, BG800’s patented ‘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. 

Now with our new BG800 WHEELED system, clients and contractors can position and relocate BG800 without the need for hydraulic lifting equipment, providing further savings during traffic management changes at construction works zones.
