TITLE  
Using waste product to create robust temporary safety barriers
ARTICLE
DESCRIPTION

Stanton Bonna Concrete often have a requirement for temporary safety barriers to help separate people from vehicles. They wanted a barrier system that was more robust than those currently available on the market or measures such as using old oil drums connected with timber.

To meet this requirement they adapted the rejects from their production of twin block railway sleepers. The only modification required was the fabrication and fitting of some box section steelwork which is welded onto the steel tie bar between the two concrete blocks. The total weight is approx 280kg which makes it robust enough to sustain minor impacts but also big and heavy enough to avoid being easily moved or stolen.
