Traffic Signs Regulations & General Directions
All temporary traffic barriers must be able to withstand three different classes of wind speeds with the use of a ballast. The standard BS 8442:2015 states the three classes as the following:
Class A: 26.3 m/s (58 mph) Class B: 17.6 m/s (39 mph) Class C: 8.7 m/s (19 mph)
The Vision Barrier system was tested under strict conditions at the Full Scale Wind Tunnel at Mira to determine at which wind speeds the barrier can withstand. Below are the results and guides as to the recommended ballast weight for each Wind Class:
Class C Withstood up to 19.8 mph. Recommended Ballast Weight: 0 kg
Class B Withstood up to 44.2 mph. Recommended Ballast Weight: 30 kg
Class A Withstood up to 61.8 mph. Recommended Ballast Weight: 90 kg
Road Rock Withstood up to 44.2 mph. Recommended Ballast Weight: 0 kg
Boxed with Road Rock Withstood up to 63.4mph. Recommended Ballast Weight: 60kg
