TVCB Barriers

These pre-cast, superior concrete barriers are conjoined using M24 diameter high tensile bolts and can be attached to the carriageway or ground. This interlocking system means that continuous barriers can be created, whilst the concrete construction offers robust anti-tampering, weather-resistant security.

Each block also offers a pre-cast arrow, allowing deployment to also direct traffic flow and each unit measures as follows:

  • Length: 3000 mm
  • Height: 800 mm
  • Width: 450 mm
  • Weight: 2500 kg

Safety, security and stability

Of all of the temporary safety barrier systems available currently, SafeSite Facilities TVC barriers demonstrate the lowest deflection under impact and have been proven to withstand impacts of up to 50 mph, making them ideal for roadways around towns and residential areas, as well as faster-traffic roads.

A linked system can be fixed to a carriageway for use as crash barriers to separate traffic streams, to protect the public from roadside hazards and protect on-site work teams and individuals from vehicles passing close by. All SafeSite Facilities TVCBs (or V28 barriers) are fully compliant with the BSEN1317:1998 part 1 &2 criteria.

As a robust, heavy-weight barrier system, TVCBs can also be used to secure against unwanted vehicular access to construction sites, car parks, forecourts and property boundaries, as well as offering a visible defence against vehicle attacks such as ram-raids and potential terrorist attacks. They can also be deployed to offer additional impact resistance to weaker or older constructions, such as bridge piers or previously damaged permanent roadside barriers.

With their weight of 2500 kg each, TVC barriers can also be used to offer on-site stability from their optional use as counterweights for piling rigs, scaffolding, suspended shuttering and similar structures.

All options available

All SafeSite Facilities TVCBs are available for hire, with delivery and installation to all parts of the UK.

These did the job – high quality
Date Published: 12/02/2019

Needed a temporary separation from traffic and a pedestrian walk way and that of my workforce. These did the job. No fuss. They were easily seen without being too ‘in your face’ high quality. Was a little concerned about collection as the project time frame kept changing. But Safesite remained professional and picked them up at short notice.

Worked well and slick service
Date Published: 02/09/2019

We used these to close off a private car park as the public had started to park there in the day as well as the night. There was the occasional vehicle dumped there too which then attracted vandals. Coming up to a demolition and rebuild we had to make sure the area was clear, and no vehicles could gain access. These barriers worked well, arrived in great condition and clean with no marks. We didn’t require hoarding with it this time but might do in phase three, so we’ll come to you again. Thanks, Safesite
