Road Zipper

The Road Zipper (formally QuickChange Moveable Barrier) is an N2, W4 and H2, W6 barrier system for Temporary (Construction) installations.

The system comprises a linked “chain” of reactive tension barrier units which can be raised slightly from the road surface and moved across the carriageway by a Transfer Vehicle allowing lane priority changes during road works and Traffic Tidal Flows.

The system allows better phasing of road works and more intensive construction as a result of more construction space being available, thus improving productivity and better utilisation of manpower and plant.
