BERGHAUSNEWS Issue 57 ⋅ March / April 2018 ⋅ berghaus-verkehrstechnik.de Dear Readers, LATEST INNOVATION: Mobile crash barrier ProTec 80 ISSUE It’s very nearly time for the Intertraffic 2018 to begin in Amsterdam. Our exhibition stand will once again be featuring innovative traffic safety products, and we are looking forward to meeting you again and to many interesting discussions. We are very pleased that the AVS Group continues to grow this year. In January for example, AVS was given entrusted with traffic safety in the framework of the new PPP project on the A10 / A24 motorways in Brandenburg, which entails six-lane expansion and refurbishment of the motorways over a length of more than 60 km. For the start of this major construction project, more than 35 km of crash barriers were installed and more than 300 km of road markings applied. The work is planned to last about 4.5 years. We are therefore going to set up a new branch of AVS Mellingen in Brandenburg. Dieter Berghaus, Managing Director AVS At the INTERTRAFFIC in Amsterdam, for the first time we will be presenting the latest innovative addition to the ProTec family: ProTec 80. This new crash barrier combines the advantages of the lightweight ProTec 50 with the sturdy stability of our compact Pro- Tec systems. It weighs just 80 kg per metre, thus permitting a higher transport volume and making ProTec 80 even more economical. 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 crash barrier elements are six metres long with a generous water opening, so that this system again prevents any dangerous accumulation of rainwater at the barrier. ProTec 80 is 50 cm wide and has a structural width of 24 cm. The planning-relevant width measured up to now of just 12 cm is even narrower than a road marking line. The system has been successfully tested according to DIN EN 1317 with free-standing installation in containment levels T1 / T3. Only the starter element was anchored in the H1 impact test with a 10 t truck. The lowest impact force level of A was achieved in all three impact attempts. And so the latest innovation ProTec 80 enriches our proven ProTec family portfolio by adding another interesting, easily handled crash barrier system for many different applications. The ProTec family consists of several successfully tested mobile crash barriers, for all application areas of mobile road restraint systems pursuant to the ZTV-SA. Despite differing shapes and structures, all mobile ProTec crash barrier systems can be combined with each other and fitted together with force-fit connections. Mobile crash barriers in the ProTec family can also be combined with stationary restraint systems or mobile systems by other manufacturers with a force-fit connection. 2 Combination example for force-fit connection using the whole ProTec family • ProTec family • Prewarners and warning trailers 3 ProTec 50 Transition element ProTec 50 to ProTec 120/121 Transition element ProTec 120/121 to ProTec 160 ProTec 160 4 • Mobile traffic light systems • Product catalogue 2018 / 2019 Your ticket into the INTERTRAFFIC 2018 Are you planning to attend the INTERTRAFFIC in Amsterdam and would you like to come to our exhibition stand to find out about new products by Berghaus Traffic Technology?
