Korean guardrail safety barrier system on a roll to safety

Sep 26, 2018

A Korean company that specialises in guardrail systems and traffic cones has developed a new barrier system that incorporates rollers to absorb impact and steer vehicle back into the traffic.

Concrete barriers and conventional metal guardrail system are effective, but cause major damage to the impacting vehicle and the guardrail itself. ETI ltd (Evolution in Traffic Innovation) believe their softer guardrail system will protect drivers from the impact shock and save lives.

The rolling barrier system is designed to do more than absorb impact energy, it converts that energy into rotational energy which propels the vehicle back into its lane instead of through or into an immovable barrier.
