Application and Benefits (Low Level/High Level)
Ideal for use around medium sized counter balance trucks with standard wheel arch so as the impact height matches the barrier. Low Level Traffic barrier is the perfect way to avoid unnecessary damage to your property. It will protect walls, building supports, valuable machinery and vulnerable equipment by repelling wayward vehicles. It offers real delineation of vehicles and clearly segregates traffic routes with a physical barrier you can trust.
“The barrier also has the added advantage of that as claimed it is a 'flexible' barrier. We can easily replace it to suit any situation or site update and it has already been used to great effect as a vehicle reversed into a section of barrier with no damage caused to the vehicle or barrier due to the forgiving 'flexible' nature of your product.”
