TL4 MDS ® BARRIERS MDS ® Barriers are a high performance aesthetically engineered bridge rail System designed for both new and existing bridge rehabilitation projects. Developed specifically for bridges due to its light weight and high impact TL-4 protection.

What is TL-4 barrier?

The Sentry Barrier TL-4 ThrieBeam System is a roadside Thrie-beam guardrail system suitable for containing, redirecting and shielding vehicles from roadside obstacles. The barrier has been designed and tested to meet the evaluation criteria of MASH Test Level 4 for a longitudinal barrier.

What are the dimensions of a Jersey barrier?

Dimensions: 12ft long x 24in wide at base x 34in tall. 12ft 6in long x 24in wide at base x 32in tall. weigh approximately 5,200 – 5,500lbs.

What are longitudinal barriers?

This listing contains barriers such as guardrail, median barrier, bridge railings and transitions, that have been issued an Eligibility Letter by FHWA based on AASHTO MASH criteria.

What does Nchrp 350 compliant mean?

What is NCHRP 350? – a document that contains recommended crash-testing procedures for evaluating a variety of roadside safety hardware, including traffic control devices that are used in work zones. NCHRP 350 was published in 1993 by the Transportation Research Board.

How do wire rope barriers work?

Wire rope safety barriers (wire barriers), also known as flexible barriers or cable fences, are highly tensioned wire ropes, supported by steel posts. The barriers are designed to slow or stop wayward vehicles by absorbing their impact and, in doing so, reduce major off-road and head-on collisions on our roads.

Why do they call it a Jersey barrier?

A Jersey barrier, Jersey wall, or Jersey bump is a modular concrete or plastic barrier employed to separate lanes of traffic. They are named after the U.S. state of New Jersey which first started using the barriers as separators between lanes of a highway in the 1950s.

How much does a 20 foot Jersey barrier weigh?

For more information and ordering please call (800) 947-1464. Weight Approx. 8000 lbs.

What is barrier deflection?

1.2 Definitions. Deflection – Also known as lateral deflection. The distance the barrier travels laterally during impact, under the guidance of crash testing standards. Note that lateral deflection can be expected whether the barriers are anchored or unanchored.

What is mash standard?

Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH) presents uniform guidelines for crash testing permanent and temporary highway safety features and recommends evaluation criteria to assess test results.

Are cable barriers safe?

Median Cable Barriers have been studied for safety, and they are arguably effective deterrents to serious highway accidents. However, a lack of proper installation and testing has led to severe collisions and even death.

What is the TL-4 four cable barrier system?

The TL-4 four cable system is designed to contain vehicle types from smaller cars up to 18,000 lb cargo trucks. The Gibraltar EN 1317 TL-4 four cable barrier consists of a 4 cable strand, high tension cable barrier providing a cost effective solution designed to contain and redirect errant vehicles from hazards.

How big is the sergard Tl4 steel barrier?

Variable Length Barriers provide positive linear protection over bridge expansion joints expanding more than 700mm maintaining TL4 protection.

When to use MDS Tl4 barriers in construction?

MDS® TL4 BARRIERS can be installed on structures as permanent or temporary barrier when mounted back to back or used as bridge rail especially during construction and time sensitive rehabilitation projects that require relocating MDS® TL4 Barriers during phase oriented construction saving considerable amounts of time, materials & money. 1.

What is the test length for Cass TL-4?

The slot and post are designed to help lower deflections as shown in crash tests by minimizing the length of unsupported cables. CASS ® TL-4 is tested to NCHRP Report 350 Test Level 4. Pre-stretched and tensioned cables require once yearly maintenance.* Cables provided in convenient preassembled 1000′ lengths (305 meters).
