M.A.S.S. (Multi Application Safety System) barriers have a number of benefits for street works safety. As a flexible solution to crash safety, SafeSite MASS Barriers are streets ahead with a range of options proven to assist in the road safety of vehicles, pedestrians and road workers.
- Range of high visibility safety colours
- Linking system
- Vehicle roll-on-roll-off stability
- Crash tested to full T2 W5 levels
- Non-permanent fixing – no drilling or coring necessary
- Speedy installation, assembly and repositioning
- All rounds safety for workers, drivers and pedestrians
- Relatively lightweight for easy transportation and storage
- Unit adaptations to accommodate rotations through 180°

Each unit measures 150 cm (length) x 50 cm (width) x 42 cm (height) and weighs approximately 48kg. Each section can be easily linked to others with a series of vertical pins, allowing full rotation through 180° for maximum versatility. Made from sturdy hot dip galvanised steel, each unit is powder coated in a range of durable high visibility colours to allow visibility across a range of local environments and weather conditions.
Safesite MASS Crash Tested Barrier system has been tested to full T2 W5 and offers fully tested vehicle roll-on-roll-off stability. Any vehicle colliding with the base of the system actually helps to stablise the overall system, maximising safety and minimising potential risk.
Versatile and portable
As well as offering versatile layout options thanks to that 180° rotation, Safesite MASS base units do not require permanent fixing through road drilling or coring. Instead, each barrier’s steel buffer is anchored with sandbags, allowing easy removal and portability to another site when required.
This non-permanent fixing, along with the Safesite MASS barriers’ innovative pin plug-in system means that installation can be quick and efficient: ideal when disruption to traffic and pedestrians needs to be kept minimal. Any dismantling and repositioning can also be achieved quickly.
When transportation to another site or storage is needed, the reduced weight and innovative shape of the MASS barriers makes them easily portable and storage-friendly. One pallet of up to 160m of Safesite MASS barriers can be delivered safely on a single vehicle, which also cuts costs of transportation.
The new shape of barrier safety
Finally, with Industry Best Practice and statutory Duty of Care being at the heart of road safety and construction legislation, and with a focus on the safety of all road users, including pedestrians, drivers and road workers, the versatile Safesite MASS barriers are the new shape of roadside safety – on all sides of the barrier.
