The design of roads should always focus on efficient, convenient and safe transportation. Naturally, drivers have a responsibility to travel at appropriate speeds and be as careful as possible. However, accidents and collisions still occur. Statistics show that some drivers develop habits that present danger to fellow motorists. Alcohol consumption, fatigue and driving over the legal speed limit are all major contributors to road and motorway accidents, as well as mechanical failure and hazardous conditions resulting from rain, snow and ice.
When drivers lose control of their vehicles, the risk of collision with others and objects on the road becomes high. Crash barriers serve to reduce the risk of vehicles becoming involved in motorway incidents and prevent subsequent injuries and fatalities. Barriers are constructed to effectively stop a vehicle from entering an opposite lane and avoid head on crashes and potential pile ups. They also prevent vehicles from leaving the road and coming into contact with bollards, trees, poles and traffic signs.
Road safety barriers require minimal maintenance and their durability ensures they will last for over 20 years. They can withstand incredibly high impacts and statistics show that over the course of their entire lifespan they only need a small amount of attention and minimal repairs. As a result of reducing road accidents overall, the barriers play a part in diminishing congestion. Accidents cause traffic jams and in some cases, extended and frustrating delays for motorists.
We are leading suppliers of Armco barrier systems, manufacturing to the highest possible standards and always offering quality customer care. It is important to place the right barrier in the right place to be sure that impact can be deflected in the event of a collision, and we know how to place them where they will be the most effective. We provide our customers with all the advice they need as well as an efficient installation service.
Our barrier systems aim to effectively prevent escalation when vehicles strike them. Rather than turning or flipping, the car is more likely to continue down the barrier line and avoid contact with any other vehicles or roadside objects. We strive at all times to deliver cost-efficient solutions that offer years of protection.
