Details

• Temporary concrete barrier rail, or k-rail, is made of concrete reinforced with rebar

• Loops at each end are made of rebar and accept either a k-rail pin or can be mounted to the ground using a post

• For ease of lifting, forklift slots are provided at the bottom as well as lifting holes midway up the side of the section for lifting with a crane

• As simple as temporary concrete barrier rail looks, it is actually a sophisticated safety device designed to control a vehicle on impact

• After impacting the barrier, the front wheel and bumper of the vehicle slide upward

• As the vehicle becomes parallel to the barrier, the wheels contact the lower slope face and are redirected back down to the road

• This action is designed to redirect the vehicle while helping to prevent it from rolling over

• Linked together, k-rail is highly effective at preventing vehicles from crossing lanes and colliding with oncoming traffic

• K-rail is also exceptional at protecting work zones from vehicles, creating a protective barrier for workers within the site
