Wind Resistance

All temporary traffic barriers must be able to withstand three different classes of wind speeds with the use of a ballast. The standard BS 8442:2006 states the three classes as the following:

Class A: 26.3 m/s (58mph)
Class B: 17.6 m/s (39mph)
Class C: 8.7m/s (19mph)

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 19.3mph.
Recommended Ballast Weight: 0kg
Class B
Withstood up to 43.6mph.
Recommended Ballast Weight: 30kg
Class A
Withstood up to 60.4mph.
Recommended Ballast Weight: 90kg
Road Rock
Withstood up to 42.8mph.
Recommended Ballast Weight: 0kg
Boxed with Road Rock
Withstood up to 62.0mph.
Recommended Ballast Weight: 60kg
