How does The Road Zipper System work?

Flexible barrier wall

One-meter sections of highly reinforced concrete barriers are pinned together to form a continuous barrier wall.

The “T-top” barriers are lifted (not dragged) and transferred by the Road Zipper Barrier Transfer Machine through a conveyor system.

The machine transfers the barrier up to 9.1 m (30') in one pass and gently sets it down without damaging the road. It operates at speeds up to 15 km/h (10 mph).
