Passive safety barriers on roads are essential for the safety of passengers in vehicles and other people on the roads. The requirements for these units and their selection are described in DIN 1317 and the Directive RPS 2007.
These rules in connection with the quality seal RAL-RG 620 provide an extremely useful way of choosing suitable equipment.
Rigid retaining equipments often work to the detriment of the safety of the vehicle occupants since the requirements on the crash worthiness are sometimes not achieved and consequently there can be an increased risk of collision with a following vehicle. Crash barriers with the quality seal RAL-RG 620 meet these requirements in an ideal way.
The advantages of steel, namely high strength and elasticity combined with high deformation capacity, can be fully used in these applications. Flexible steel crash barrier systems are used to mitigate these dangers.
Steel safety barriers offer a very economic solution for new purchase, maintenance and repair, as well as for reuse and finally scrapping. Also in the private and commercial area steel safety barriers are used to make car parks, halls, machines and filling stations secure or to protect other items such as cash machines, liquid gas tanks, etc.
