Highway Engineering Vetex high containment

Vetex high containment

Designed to contain very large vehicles

Vetex higher containment (H2) system combines safety performance with installation convenience. Vetex H2 is an innovative, cost effective solution for safety barrier applications which are designed to contain very large vehicles, e.g. coaches, curtained lorries etc.

This is used on motorways, in high-risk areas, such as bridges, gantries, concrete abutments, and off the road to protect machinery or buildings. EN1317 details various performance classes for high containment barrier. Tata Steel high containment barrier is H2 class, which can contain vehicles of up to 13,000kg vehicle mass.

Vetex H2 has been designed with collapsible elements to absorb impact energy, assisting safety performance. The Vetex H2 design protects occupants from vehicle crossovers and safely redirects the vehicle back onto the highway.
