The ASSET SOLOGUARD® System

ASSET SOLOGUARD® is the only safety barrier for carriageway crossover points allowing opening and closing by two operatives within 5 minutes.

Current systems in use, such as demountable wire ropes or corrugated and box beam barriers, need specialist safety barrier crews to open and close them. Taking up to 4 or 5 hours, these systems are costly operations.

ASSET SOLOGUARD® is instantly moveable, allowing the flow of traffic to be altered quickly and safely, by simply removing 4 securing pins and winding down 4 sets of hidden wheels.

Many emergency crossing points on motorways and trunk roads have SOLOGUARD® installed. Maintenance crossing points at tunnels and bridges around the UK are also protected with this system.

ASSET SOLOGUARD® is part of the ASSET VARIOGUARD® range of products. ASSET SOLOGUARD® can be fitted into existing safety fences using transition units. Maintenance Crossing Points to lengths of 150m and Emergency Crossing Points with 20m lengths can be accommodated.

PROTECTION OF CROSSOVER AND CONTRAFLOW SITUATIONS

ASSET SOLOGUARD® can easily be moved, so when crossovers have to be frequently opened and closed, the system can simply be raised off the road using a special jacking device, and wheeled into its new position.

When space is limited, road markings can be applied close to the ASSET SOLOGUARD® base. High quality reflectors fixed onto the posts provide the additional visibility needed for safe guidance at night, or in rainy or foggy conditions.

The ASSET STEEL STEP System

ASSET International’s Steel Step System is employed at emergency crossing points in step profile concrete central reserve barriers.

The system consists of a rapid opening and closing bi-directional gate. With its extremely low deflection and high containment capability, Steel Step System is the ideal system for emergency access points between concrete step barrier systems.

Steel Step Systems can also be used on bridge decks, where conventional slip form concrete cannot be used due to its weight. Anchored every 5.4 m, the system’s performance is equivalent to concrete and is cost effective.

ASSET can undertake installation of this product, or alternatively can train our customers in safe installation under Highways Agency Sector Scheme 2(b).

Steel Step Installation

Supplied and installed by ASSET, the system enables easy opening in different configurations.

By removing locking pins at either end of the barrier, the Steel Step System can either pivot from each end or be relocated laterally, thus exposing the full opening.

Maintenance training in use of the system is provided by ASSET’s in-house training facility.
