Temporary Barriers

 

Maximize portability. Minimize maintenance.

Temporary steel barriers from Barrier Systems provide easy-to-move solutions that enhance safety for short-term or temporary work zones, bridge decks or repair areas where barrier deployments and lane movements are frequent. ArmorGuard and Orion steel barriers have gone through rigorous testing and meet NCHRP 350 TL-3 testing criteria.

ArmorGuard Temporary Barrier

ArmorGuard Temporary Barrier

NCHRP 350 acceptance

This movable steel barrier provides high portability and low deflection for short work zone durations without ground anchoring. The ArmorGuard barrier can be quickly and easily opened and positioned without requiring electricity or heavy equipment. Each section is 8.5 m (28’) long and can be moved longitudinally with a pickup truck or laterally by forklift, front loader, pickup truck or even by hand. Sections can also be attached or joined in combination with portable concrete barriers to create controlled access gates.

Features

  • Quick and easy deployment
  • Can be moved laterally or longitudinally to optimize traffic flow and work zone space
  • Meets NCHRP 350 TL-2 and TL-3 test criteria
  • High mobility provides flexibility
  • Low deflection premium mobile steel barrier
  • Pneumatic option for wheel activation available
  • Rubber pads and wheels protect road surface during moves
  • No special equipment required at work site
  • No electrical / control systems required to operate 
Orion Temporary Barrier

Orion Temporary Barrier

NCHRP 350 acceptance

The Orion Portable Steel Barrier has been engineered to be lightweight and provide excellent performance. It’s also easy to transport, easy to deploy and easy to repair—making it a strong alternative to portable concrete barriers. The unique design incorporates standard off-the-shelf components—like an 8-space, thrie-beam guardrail and standard w-beam guardrail connected to the steel frame—to create an NCHRP 350 TL-3 accepted longitudinal barrier.

Features

  • Available as a kit or system
  • Up to 1150’ (350 m) can be deployed in one hour
  • Only first and last Orion Sections need to be anchored*
  • Only 460 mm (18”) wide which is ideal for narrow medians in construction zones
  • Allows for a radius as low as 355 m (1165’)
  • 84 m (6’) NCHRP 350 TL-3 Deflection (2000 kg, 25 degree, 100 km/h)
  • Low deflection, “fully pinned” option available
  • Up to 350 m (1150’) can be deployed in one hour

*950 mm permanent deflection can be achieved by anchoring each section to create an Orion Minimal Deflection System.  Standard deflection is 1850 mm when only the first and last sections are anchored.
