Road traffic accidents are expensive and often frightening and now most drivers will have encountered a average 50mph speed limit on a fast moving road. Keeping both lane of traffic separate is the key to traffic safety, what happens when a driver looses control of their vehicle and heads for the other lane of oncoming traffic. That type of event has the potential to be a huge accident so having a proven barrier system in place that can keep the traffic safely separate deduces the risks for everyone concerned.
New BR22 Traffic Separators are now available to BS EN 1317 – N1 50 mph test. Designed to offer maximum safety this range of products is one of the quickest deployable barrier systems on the market. Very cost effective too, with up to 200 metres per load offering huge savings on labour and transport.
On impact, the RB22 Barrier system will bring an errant vehicle safely to a controlled stop. Manufactured for prime UV stable polyethylene which provides a versatile yet strong, semi-flexible one piece barrier system for easy handling and installation on site by your own work force or contractor with no need for costly crane lifting machinery for any given emergency set-up.

Why use rubber instead of concrete or asphalt?
Hazard invented (1971) the idea of using rubber to manufacture speed ramps to enforce and control traffic speeds without any damage to vehicles.
How high are the ramps and can all types of vehicles drive over? There are three versions, 70mm high, 60mm and 50mm for speeds from5 to 20 m.p.h., and everything from a Smart car to HGVs can drive over.
Will the ramps slow my traffic down? Yes, drivers will slow down and pass over our ramps safely but, to be effective, ramps and signs have to be seen, whatever the conditions.
Are these speed ramps safe?
Manufactured from truck tyre stock rubber to prevent any damage to vehicles as they pass over, SpeedStoppers® are designed to be much more effective than the DfT guidelines of 100mm high ramps in urban rat run areas!
