Highway Engineering Vetex normal containment

Vetex normal containment

Innovative, cost effective solution for safety barrier applications

Vetex normal containment (N2) system combines safety performance with installation convenience. Vetex™ N2 is an innovative, cost effective solution for safety barrier applications. Normal containment barrier is designed to contain average vehicles, e.g. small and large cars <1500kg etc. This is used on motorways, major roads and minor roads. EN1317 details various performance classes for normal containment barrier.

Vetex™ N2 has been designed with collapsible elements to absorb impact energy, assisting safety performance. Vetex™ N2 design protects occupants from vehicle crossovers and safely redirects the vehicle back onto the highway.

Many working widths to chose from:

  • Several post spacing options
  • Acceleration Severity Index (ASI) A class on several options
  • Fully compatible with existing UK steel barrier systems
  • Untensioned for quick, easy installation and low maintenance
  • Approved by the Highways Agency
  • On and off the road, in normal containment risk areas e.g. central reserves, verges and protection from impact with obstructions
  • High speed roads, including motorways, trunk and non-trunk roads
  • New build projects
  • Can be integrated with existing barrier runs: ideal for refurbishment, extensions and maintenance projects
