Product in focus: Lo-Ro water filled barriers

A plastic road barrier with MASH TL-2 deflection

The Lo-Ro is a relatively new addition to the Australian barrier market, offering MASH TL-2 protection. It provides excellent protection for posted speed zones up to 70km/hr and is the ideal barrier to hire to ensure you comply with 2022’s updated MASH regulations.

The Lo-Ro is a plastic water filled barrier that offers best in class deflection, shorter clear zones and a shorter minimum length. Its lower profile height provides increased visibility for motorists in urban areas, thereby increasing safety for both your workers and for the public.

Case study: concrete barriers improve Sydney’s alfresco dining areas

Can concrete barriers look great? Yes they can!
