The Brifen Wire Rope Safety Barrier (WRSB) has been used since the 1960’s. The Brifen WRSB is a high-tension cable barrier and has an edge over any other WRSB due to its interwoven rope construction.
The interwoven rope system provides better support for road traffic as the additional friction between the ropes and the posts allow for less deflection beyond the carriageway when the fence is impacted. Vehicles are safely contained and redirected away from any hazards that may lie beyond the carriageway of the road when impacted minimising injury to vehicle occupants.
Due to the interwoven characteristic of the system, the Brifen WRSB can accommodate tighter radius than other systems at the same post spacings, and also reduces the risk of wire rope springing out onto road way from impact, especially on curved installations.
