VARIO-GUARD® Barrier System

This flexible steel barrier is ideal for permanent or temporary road applications. It is widely used for protecting road work sites and for contra flow situations.

VARIO-GUARD® is suitable for use as a median barrier. The 900mm high barrier has excellent redirecting, as well as containment characteristics, when impacted. We also offer Vario-Guard crash worthy gates – Gate-Guard – which can be installed with this system for the use of emergency vehicles and contra flow requirements.

Vario-Guard can be transitioned to other barriers such as Mini-Guard

Safeguarding Work Zones:

VARIO-GUARD® provides a positive barrier between traffic and workforce. The barrier is only 400mm wide excluding the base, which is designed for traffic to drive over, making it especially suitable where road space is limited.

Safeguarding Traffic:

Vario-Guard has a very high containment capability, tested and approved to H2. i.e. Vehicles up to 13,000kg impacting at 70km/h at 20 degree angle. It is often used at the edge of dangerous road sections or as a median barrier to provide maximum safety to traffic and to reduce the potential for head-on accidents.

Safeguarding Diversions:

Frequently there are diversions in work/maintenance areas which pose a greater threat to traffic. Vario-Guard is an ideal system for channelling and redirecting traffic in a safe way.
