All About A Thrie Beam Crash Barrier And Its Specifications

The importance of a metal crash barrier will never be realized until it someday saves our life.


They are created to prevent major accidents when vehicles lose their balance and run off the road or roll down high embankments. In the unfortunate event of an accident, a metal crash barrier contains, redirects, or absorbs the impact energy of the hitting vehicle and guides the automobile back on the road. Consequently, the severity of the accident, damage to the vehicle as well as the barrier, and the force experienced by the vehicle occupants is minimized to a tolerable limit.


A Metal CrashBarrier is installed in accident-prone locations such as highways, flyovers& bridges, rocky areas, hilly terrain, high embankments, test tracks in the automobile industry, mass housing complexes/townships, airports, railway stations, and parking lots.


The excellent visibility of a metal crash barrier highlights the limit of safe travel, especially at night or in fog conditions. That is why a metal crash barrier proves to be beneficial for drivers venturing out late at night. 


Utkarsh India deals in all types of W Beam Crash Barriers, Thrie Beam Crash Barriers, and related components, as well as anchorage systems.
