Nu-Guard 31 W-beam Guardrail Barrier

Nu_Guard_9.jpgThe NU-GUARD™ 31 barrier has been designed, tested and FHWA accepted to NCHRP 350 test criteria for longitudinal barriers.  The unique ‘driven’ small steel posts (with no blockout) are used to hold the standard W-beam barrier in the traditional manner to an overall height of 787mm (31”).  
 
Upon impact with either an 2000 or 8000 kg vehicle, the  NU-GUARD™ 31 safely re-directed or contained them from impact at angles up to 25° and speeds up to 100kph. 
 
The NU-GUARD™ 31 barrier is a high performance (TL-4), low cost and zero maintenance barrier.  When impacted downstream from the terminal end it can shield fixed objects and provide edge of road protection as well as prevent cross median accidents (median version).

Strong post design with no blockout, reducing components and cost
