Crash tested barriers are a necessity in many instances and have numerous applications. They are commonly found on roads and highways as a means of containing errant vehicles. Border Barriers has a range of crash barriers in various specifications, tested to withstand impact from vehicles traveling at a number of speeds.

Border Barriers supplies the following crash tested barriers available for purchase or hire:

These barriers are MIRA tested to 50mph, require no ground drilling to secure, and weigh only 170 kg when empty, increasing to a sturdy 530 kg when filled with water.
  • Temporary Vertical Concrete Barriers - Highways Agency approved, reinforced concrete barriers capable of containing vehicles traveling up to 70mph. Excellent for use on verges and central reservations and weighing approximately 2500 kg.

Our crash barriers are perfect for multiple uses. The most common application of our crash tested barriers, particularly TVCBs, is on highways to prevent vehicles traveling towards oncoming traffic and minimise damage if they do stray off course.

Crash barrier hire is also the ideal solution to roadwork safety. They offer protection in the unlikely event that a driver loses control and ensures that your employees and their work are safe from harm.

At many types of event, crash barriers are a must. They provide a safe and efficient way of controlling the flow of traffic, whether it is in or out of your event.
