Central reserve safety barrier
On Bridges -Verges
The surface mounted concrete highway barrier (CSB) is an innovative product developed by Britpave to simplify the installation of CSB. Surface mounted Britpave CSB is the preferred Britpave Barrier Systems’ product and method of installation for most situations. However, in certain circumstances, such as on bridge decks, embedded CSB must be used.
The main difference between surface mounted and embedded CSB is that it is constructed directly on the bituminous or concrete road surface, and does not require a separate concrete foundation or restraint. This reduces construction time and traffic management, requiring less excavation and less material compared to embedded CSB. Standard profile Britpave CSB is a slipformed barrier 900mm high above road level with an overall base width of 542mm (top width is 200mm).
Slipforming is a high-output automated process that reduces manual handling operations. Typically standard profile Britpave CSB can be slipformed at a rate of 400 linear metre per eight hour shift.
