Ezy-Guard 4 highway barrier system
Valmont’s Ezy-Guard 4 highway barrier system is the next generation of steel guardrail barriers featuring a smart design, rapid installation and driver confidence. The Ezy-Guard 4 barrier system has been fully crash tested and evaluated according to the specifications for Test Level 3 (TL-3) of the AASHTO Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH) and now offers NCHRP-350 TL-4 containment level.
The Z-post profile shields post edges from vulnerable road users and provides sectional strength when driving through difficult ground conditions. An Ezy-Carriage is used to secure the W-beam barrier to the posts and eliminate the requirement for blocking pieces and rail stiffening plates. This unique Ezy-Guard 4 connection provides a soft ride-down for vehicle occupants and smooth vehicle containment and redirection for highway safety.
