Screen-Guard Pedestrian Crossover Deterrent
Transpo’s Screen-Guard provides a safe and highly visible barrier over highway concrete barriers. Screen-Guard helps to discourage people from attempting to cross highways at non designated areas and deters them from trying to climb over the concrete barriers in the center of highways.
Many states across the US are experiencing an increase in pedestrians crossing highways on foot and being struck by vehicles. In an effort to discourage these dangerous and sometimes fatal crossings, more and more DOTs are implementing ways to discourage these crossings, while maintaining a safe driving environment for vehicles.
Screen-Guard has been crash tested in accordance with MASH requirements for test levels 3 & 4. The test results were minimal damage to the Screen-Guard, zero passenger compartment intrusion and no debris scatter into the opposing traffic lanes. Repairs to the test installation was completed in less than one hour and returned to full service.
The key to Screen-Guards performance comes from its unique double-reversed corrugated (DRC) fabric, formed from hot-dipped galvanized sheet steel, and can be installed up to forty-eight inches. The DRC fabric is powder-coated to provide additional protection from salt and snow.
DRC Fabric: Screen-Safe® is fabricated from 25 gauge steel sheet, AISI 1010 or 1008, and hot-dip galvanized to ASTM A-653, coating designation G90. The finish is a light gray, medium-gloss powder-coat with zinc. It conforms to ASTM D 523 for gloss and B 117 for salt spray resistance, reference test for Bonderite. The film thickness minimum is 1.8 mils.
All hardward components are structural grade.
