TPA’s latest product launch keeps access sites on the edge

24 Jul

Specialist access solutions provider TPA has extended its portable roadways portfolio with the launch of slide protection barriers.

The integrated solution is secured to existing connecting points on the edge of TPA’s aluminium roadways panels providing clear demarcation of the sides of the access road as well as having the capability to prevent vehicles from leaving it.

Modular in design, it can be assembled to produce different lengths and configurations with no ground penetration. The components are light enough to be installed by hand so no additional plant is required.

Its bright yellow colouring provides high visibility along the length of the installed roadway and its robust steel construction prevents vehicles up to 40 tonnes from veering off the roadway whilst the offset design maintains a 3m clearance.

The system will commonly be utilised when the access road is installed on land with an adverse camber or where there is a drop off to both or either side of the access, such as on an embankment or a culvert crossing.

As well as portable roadways, TPA also supplies rapid rail access systems
