Road safety is a key topic
Making roads a safer place is a major topic for all countries
Vehicle Restraint Systems (VRS) are a major factor in road safety as these passive safety systems have the purpose to reduce risks and increase road safety. They protect the vehicle from deviating off the lane and minimize the effects of accidents. To be implemented in Europe, VRS must meet the requirements of the European Norm EN 1317. The EN 1317 sets the highest international standards and ensures the uniformity of testing conditions. The Vehicle Restraint Systems have to successfully pass crash tests, whose parameters and acceptance criteria are defined by this norm. All DELTABLOC® safety barriers are tested with reputable, accredited and certified testing institutes and over 320 successful crash test prove that we are the number one in road safety.
The 3 main criteria of the EN 1317 are: Containment level, Working width and Impact severity.
