TRL note on tests completed for ASSET – “Since the flanged base of the ASSET VARIOGUARD® extends 150 mm in from the traffic face the set back distance of the barrier can be reduced by 150 mm without adversely affecting the performance of the barrier. As a consequence the Working Width can be reduced by a corresponding distance.”
