New product line from Elite Precast Concrete
Precast concrete manufacturer introduces mass-produced temporary vertical concrete barriers (TVCBs)
ELITE Precast Concrete have introduced a new addition to their product range with the launch of mass-produced temporary vertical concrete barriers (TVCBs), for sale throughout the UK.
The Shropshire-based company says TVCBs have a wide range of uses, from traffic control and pedestrian and workforce safety, to site-security, kentledge, flood-defence and anti-terrorist functions. They are also suitable for use in conjunction with anti-climb fencing to create high-security, rapidly installed temporary perimeter protection.
The TVCBs are cast from the firm’s premium-quality, high-strength concrete and measure 800mm in height, 450mm in width and 3,000mm in length. Weighing 2,500kg, the barriers meet the full requirements of EN 1317 ‘Compliant Road Restraints Systems for Temporary Safety Barriers’ and are also recognized by the Highways Agency for use on the trunk road network.
Owen Batham (pictured), sales and marketing director at Elite Precast Concrete, commented: ‘Until now, the availability of new TVCBs for the general market has been extremely limited. By mass producing them for sale rather than hire, we hope to open up the market for both existing and new clients.
‘Our low-cost business model will ensure prices are extremely competitive and delivery will be on our usual next-day nationwide basis. We can supply any number of TVCBs to any destination in the UK and beyond, with no minimum order required.’
TVCBs are the latest addition to Elite’s range of interlocking blocks and barriers, which are used throughout the UK and overseas by a wide range of clients, including local authorities, recycling businesses and waste-management firms, to build durable waste-storage bays etc.
The blocks are also used in industries such as construction, transport and outdoor hospitality, where they are utilized as kentledge to hold scaffolding, security fencing and marquees in place.
