Handy element length of 2 m and low weight of 23.5 kg per metre makes it ideal for flexible use. At the INTERTRAFFIC inAmsterdam, for the first time we will be presenting the latest innovative addition to the ProTec family: ProTec 50 City. This is the "handy" version of the proven ProTec 50 mobile crash barrier, rated specifically for use in the urban setting. As with all ProTec crash barriers, reflectors are fastened at regular intervals on both sides at the top and bottom of the elements, thus eliminating the need for additional yellow road markings parallel to the barrier. The wide water opening prevents any dangerous accumulation of rainwater at the barrier. The low element weight of just 23.5 kg per metre and the easily handled element length of 2 metres make this crash barrier ideal for city use. The planning-relevant width of just 10 cm is even narrower than a road marking line. Although intended for urban use, the ProTec 50 City has been successfully tested under the same strict conditions of DIN EN 1317 that apply to motorway crash barriers. Although completely without ground anchoring, ProTec 50 City passed the impact tests at 80 km/h with containment level T1, effective range W2 and an ideal impact force level of "A". When considering these excellent test results, it is also worth bearing in mind that the speed limit through urban roadworks is usually much lower and often reduced to 30 km/h. Any vehicle impact at this reduced speed means that the road restraint system offers even greater safety for road users and workers at the construction site. The narrow mobile crash barrier ProTec 50 City is the ideal choice for professional traffic safety in the urban setting. No matter what the specific situation, with mobile crash barriers in the ProTec family you will always be on the safe side!

During every inspection, the respective CURRENT status of the traffic safetymeasures is registered using the menu, with electronic documentation of the maintenance work that has been performed. Service Control GPS also gives customers or awarding Exact documentation of your roadworks maintenance road construction authorities reliable proof that the controls specified in the framework of the road safety obligations have been regularly fulfilled on site. The new handy Service Control GPS comes in a robust housing with IP code 65. The innovative OLED graphic display is always easy to read. The charge status and satellite signal strength are clearly shown, while the integrated clock and GPS module is responsible for precise position tracking. It is easy to change over to the new system because the RFID reader also reads the Berghaus roadworks ID chips that have been used up to now. Four soft keys permit intuitive use of the Service Control GPS, which can save up to 499 maintenance assignments. Digital signatures have been set up for counterfeit-proof data storage and printout. Long operating phases are ensured by the Li-Po high-powered battery. The accessories include a vehicle battery charger with holder so that the Service Control GPS has a defined position in the maintenance vehicle and is always ready to use.
