Safetyflex Barriers has added a new surface-mounted product to its crash-rated range of street furniture that can stop vehicle threats in public places.
The surface-mounted barriers do not require any foundations or ground fixings so can provide instant protection on a permanent or temporary basis, and are supplied with a bespoke cladding that means they can also be used as functional street furniture and attractive planters. They are crash-tested to industry standards BSI PAS68 and IWA14 to withstand impact at speeds of up to 50mph.
Marcus Gerrard, director at Safetyflex, said: “We’ve been asked by many city centre projects for a crash-rated planter solution with a shallow foundation, so our design team came up with a surface-mounted, crash-rated product that can be used as a planter or street furniture with absolutely no need for foundations. They can be picked up and relocated to suit changing needs.”
