Rhino Crash Tested Safety Barrier

Border Barriers is the sole UK and European Distributor of the world's leading Crash Tested Safety Barrier System.

Rhino Barrier Logo The Rhino Crash Tested Safety Barrier is a waterfill barrier, MIRA-tested to 50mph and Highways Agency-approved. In many situations it offers control, delineation, and protection for both employees and the general public.

Border Barriers holds the honour of being the exclusive distributor of Rhino barriers in the UK and Europe. We have supplied Rhino’s crash tested safety barriers for numerous applications including traffic management, streetworks and pedestrian safety, site security, and events and festivals. Border Barriers has even supplied to prestigious events like the 2012 London Olympics.

Benefits of these barriers include:

  • No ground drilling required - these crash barriers are tested freestanding and so don’t need to be fixed in place.
  • Able to absorb impact - fitted with impact strips to protect the main body of the barrier and keep it functional even after impact
  • Easy to repair - if side strips are damaged, they can be replaced without moving the barrier
  • Up to 15° configuration - extra flexibility when assembling your barrier system
  • High visibility - reflective strips on barriers mean they can easily be seen even in low light
  • Light weight - they can be manhandled into place and quickly assembled with pin drop system
  • Flexible - can easily be combined with a range of other products including Rhino mesh, hoarding and sound reduction panels for additional safety and security
