Thoroughly tested 

& verifiably safe

We’ve put our products to the test over and over to ensure their efficacy in all scenarios.

1

The vehicle collides with the barrier which flexes in responses.

2

The vehicle is carefully straightened as it slides along the side of the barrier

3

Pushing against the vehicle, the barrier continues to correct its path until it is returned to its lane

The vehicle collides with the barrier which flexes in responses.

Crash testing of the barriers has demonstrated the effectiveness and responsiveness of the Bull Barrier system

Why choose a flexible safety barrier design?

Bull Barrier’s traffic restraint system is among the safest on the market today. This is because the safety barrier is designed to direct the colliding vehicle back towards the flow of the traffic after absorbing the impact of a collision before directing vehicle back towards the flow of the traffic. By reacting to a collision fluidly rather than remaining rigid, the barrier reduces the forces exerted on a driver’s body that are typically associated with crashing into a rigid barrier. Such technology ensures that Bull Barrier’s traffic restraint system protects road and site users in both glancing and head-on collisions.

This controlled transfer of energy also means that Bull Barrier modules are not irreparably damaged by a single collision. In fact they can withstand repeated impacts, and can simply be returned their original shape once a vehicle has moved away.

Installing our barriers requires no permanent fixings due to their solid linking system. The curved design of Bull Barrier’s traffic restraint system enables them to be installed around corners and in an array of configurations. Modules are also painted in a retro-reflective red and white paint to maximise visibility and help minimise collisions in the first place. 

Why are flexible safety barriers so important?

On roads, construction sites and industrial premises, safety barriers are a valuable tool in protecting people from the dangers of moving vehicles and heavy machinery. To ensure the wellbeing of road users and site workers, Bull Barrier has developed the safest, most flexible and cost effective solution on the market today.

Constructed from sheet carbon steel and steel tubes, Bull Barrier exceeds all European and international safety standards. Thanks to the modular design, these barriers can also be installed quickly and efficiently by just two people.

Choosing the right safety barrier?

Safety barrier design can range from traffic cones to a concrete half wall. With such a broad spectrum of designs and varying features, it isn’t always easy to know which safety barrier is best. Durability, versatility, cost and ease of installation are all important considerations before making a decision.

Flexibility plays an important role in safety barrier design, from establishing how quick and simple it is to install, remove or relocate safety barriers to determining how easy it is to place the barriers in a variety of locations. From temporary roadworks to long-term infrastructure projects and even construction site partitions, being able to install safety barriers quickly and reposition at short notice is of great benefit.

However, this flexibility should not come at the expense of strength or durability.

Bull Barrier’s unique modular design not only makes it convenient but also gives it great strength, making it a viable solution in many situations. While concrete traffic safety barriers are extremely strong and hardwearing – which is why they can often be found used in central reservations – they cannot be moved as easily and are typically more expensive to install.

Often, lighter more portable safety barriers compromise on safety but this isn’t the case with Bull Barrier. And a flexible safety road barrier can do a lot more than this too, even making the roads themselves safer for motorists and pedestrians alike than they would be with rigid concrete options. 

So what makes Bull Barrier’s flexible safety barriers ideal for road safety, and how exactly do they work to prevent the impact of an accident?

 

Why choose a flexible safety barrier design?

Bull Barrier’s traffic restraint system is among the safest on the market today. This is because the safety barrier is designed to absorb the impact of any collision before directing the colliding vehicle back towards the flow of the traffic. By moving fluidly during collision rather than remaining rigid, the barrier reduces the forces exerted on a driver’s body that would commonly be associated with a collision with a rigid barrier. 

Such technology ensures that Bull Barrier’s traffic restraint system protects road and site users in both glancing and head-on collisions.

Modules are also painted in a retro-reflective red and white paint to maximise visibility and help minimise collisions in the first place.

The World Health organisation estimates that there are 1.25 million deaths on the road each year. And nearly half of these fatalities are vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists – many of whom could have benefitted from greater protection and segregation from fast moving vehicles. This shows just how important it is to make our roads and adjoining pathways safer.

 

Other benefits

Why else should you consider investing in Bull Barrier safety barriers? 

Bull Barrier’s innovative design offers a number of other key benefits to customers. Not only are they incredibly easy to install, flexible and strong, they are also low maintenance. This makes them as suitable to long-term infrastructure projects as short-term road works. Modules are also incredibly easy to store when not in use, making them the perfect solution on construction sites or industrial settings where safe paths and clear zones may be required on an ad hoc basis to ensure the safety of workers and pedestrians.
