Tertu TimberRail

Tertu TimberRail is a permanent vehicle restraint system (VRS), which combines the strength of a steel structure with the attractive appearance of a renewable timber exterior. The result is a robust and aesthetically pleasing VRS that enhances safety and complements virtually any rural, urban or residential location.

Blending in perfectly with the natural environment, Tertu TimberRail is ideal for a wide array of locations, including areas of outstanding national beauty, national parks and conservation areas, alongside housing estates, low traffic neighbourhoods, car parks, drive throughs, and retail estates.

The system offers fantastic sustainability credentials alongside its safety and aesthetic benefits. Made using renewable timber, it can usually be refurbished with new timber using the existing steel sub-structure to extend the service life of the installation, and the whole system can be recycled at the end of its lifecycle.

In total, our Tertu TimberRail range includes thirteen different EN 1317-2 certified, steel-backed timber safety rails, including the potential to add a handrail to the protective barrier. It can be installed with P4 end terminals, including a powder coated Ermes hybrid P4 end terminal and crash cushion from our SMA range, to match the timber aesthetic.
