The Ezy-Guard™ guardrail crash barrier has been engineered to ensure that vehicles are subjected to lower forces on impact, reducing the risk of injury to the vehicle’s occupants. As the barrier deflects, the vehicle’s impact energy is dissipated in a way that helps to protect occupants from harm.
A lightweight guardrail crash barrier system with ductile Z-posts and a clever EZY-Carriage™ sliding carriage, the Ezy-Guard™ barrier is designed to provide stable vehicle containment and re-direction. It effectively allows the W-beam to detach, reducing the potential damage of any impact by limiting ride-down deceleration forces.
The EZY-Carriage™ is used to secure the system’s W-beam rails to the Z-posts, eliminating any requirement for blocking pieces or rail stiffening plates, which could cause injuries due to scattering debris after a collision. Because the EZY-Carriage™ slides on the Z-post, the W-beam stays correctly engaged with any impacting vehicles, ensuring even larger vehicles – such as SUVs – are contained.
Delivering sustainability benefits by using up to 40% less steel than conventional steel guardrail barriers, Ezy-Guard™ enables cost-effective transportation with reduced embedded carbon.
