This week the South of England has experienced a sever weather system consisting of heavy rain and gale force winds that has caused disruption for constructions sites, rail lines and the general public.

Here at Border Barriers we want to make people aware that our BBS Rhino Advanced Safety System and BBS Rhino Crash Tested system have been Mira Wind tested.

If you have a project coming up over the next couple of wintery months that requires Site Security / Delineation / Street Works / Traffic Management or Pedestrian Safety you will be able to feel more assured that these barriers can handle the extreme winter weather.

MIRA – 102946801                                                                                                       Safety Barrier Sign-off Test
