Ingal Civil Products' FLEXBEAM guardrail is a semi-rigid roadside safety barrier used in locations which require a containment level of NCHRP-350 TL3. The system comprises W-Beam mounted on a timber post and block configuration.
The high visibility of FLEXBEAM guardrail car barriers creates driver confidence. This is an intangible but exceedingly important factor. At night or in fog conditions, the excellent visibility of W-Beam guardrail highlights the limit of safe travel and reduces dangerous centre line crowding.
The post and block design of FLEXBEAM guardrail reduces wheel snagging and the consequential effects of vaulting or rollover. This design benefit makes FLEXBEAM guardrail an appropriate choice alongside raised medians and gutters, which may otherwise act as trip hazards causing vehicles to dive, launch into or roll over other barriers.
