Ironman Hybrid Barrier

Ironman Hybrid Barrier

Ironman Hybrid is the first ever Australian hybrid barrier, combining heavy duty steel components with concrete ballast to provide a barrier
that delivers excellent performance with no anchoring. This temporary crash barrier is known as well for its performance and deflection,
as it is for its usability and quick deployment. This barrier is perfectly suited to your next low-mid speed projects.

Approved by

The IRONMAN HYBRID BARRIER is one of our innovations and adaptations of our original form of this barrier. It offers excellent flexibility for 40, 60 and some 80kmh projects. It’s a freestanding temporary longitudinal barrier system successfully crash tested to NCHRP 350 TL-3.

This steel barrier has an Austroads Safety Barrier Assessment Panel (ASBAP) approval to 80km/h. It’s lightweight and stackable design offers transport cost savings when compared to traditional concrete barriers. Our fleet consists of only Hybrid Ironman and we have successfully installed over 100km of product since our rental business commenced.

We offer a turn-key barrier rental solution and all deployments will be solely managed and certified by the Road Safety Rental team.

Frankston City Council - Christmas Festival of Lights

Frankston City Council - Christmas Festival of Lights

The organising committee of the Christmas Festival of Lights, which is one of Melbourne’s largest and most iconic street festivals, needed to ensure the protection the crowds enjoying the event, held on Saturday the 30th of November. The event offers a magical night of fun, entertainment and festivity. There are many free activities, such as live theatre, rides, food trucks and visits with Santa. The night wraps up with an impressive fireworks display. It attracts upwards of 50,000 people, and is the largest free Christmas event in Victoria.

As the event required several major road closures, Road Safety Rental were engaged by contractor, Frankston City Council, to provide a crash barrier solution to ensure an errant vehicle would not enter the pedestrian area.

The Ironman Hybrid Barrier was chosen due to being freestanding and cost effective to deploy, whilst still offering event organisers peace of mind, being ASBAP approved up to 80km/h.

Rokon – Craigieburn Road East, Wollert

Rokon – Craigieburn Road East, Wollert

The works that Rokon are undertaking along Craigieburn Road, incorporates a new signalised intersection turning lanes from feeder roads and preparatory works with duplications and separation between east and west bound lanes.  The Ironman Hybrid offered the right combination of flexibility, ability to take corners and curves and allowed the contractor additional onsite capacity to temporarily remove and relocate as needed.  The barriers will be out on site for some time and will continue to provide superior workzone protection for the duration of the works.

Negri – Forsyth Road, Williams Landing

This project sees a connector road in the western suburbs undergoing a significant duplication, and the choice of barrier was a considered one.  Negri needed the right blend of flexibility within the barrier system, so needed a freestanding barrier system and also something with low deflection and performance to ensure contractors and staff are safe working behind the barriers during the 6-8 months project.  The project has been delivered predominantly in two extensive stages, with the project new at full mobilisation and approx. 1250m of Ironman Hybrid Barriers.  The choice was made easy by the turn-key solutions provided by the Road Safety Rental team and sees Negri with another safe and effective temporary barrier system on their worksites.

Negri – Canterbury Road (Heathmont)

Road Safety Rental have recently deployed a 200m Ironman Hybrid temporary barrier system on Canterbury Rd to ensure the safety of the Negri team as they work on the construction of a new turning lane. The additional 200m turning lane will significantly ease traffic congestion in the Heathmont area, especially in the morning peak hour. We are glad to have been able to do our bit once again and provide a safe worksite for the entire construction team from Negri on this project..

Fowlers Asphalting - Phillip Island Rd/Back Beach Road

Recently the Road Safety Rental team deployed a 600m run of Ironman Hybrid with QuadGuard CZ end treatments on Phillip Island Road / Back Beach Road.

CN#9963 was awarded to Fowlers Asphalting and the works include significant road widening and the construction of a roundabout to increase traffic flow and road safety at a very busy intersection on the Island.

Fowlers Asphalting needed to ensure maximum safety and chose Ironman Hybrid due to this temporary crash barrier being ASBAP approved to 80km/h, along with anchored end treatments for increased safety for the roadworks crew. The crash barriers were installed in a single shift, allowing the contractor to immediately commence works the following day.

Bitu-Mill Infrastructure - Yarrawonga

Road Safety Rental worked closely with Bitu-Mill to supply suitable temporary safety barriers during the construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Woods Road and Murray Valley Highway in Yarrawonga. The Ironman Hybrid Barriers have proven the ideal choice for this project, due to economical freight, simple deployment and flexibility to negate the alignment required. At the completion of the works, the new roadway and roundabout will ease congestion and allow increased flow in and around one the busiest areas of the Moira Shire. Another happy Road Safety Rental customer, who commented of the experience with our team as being flexible, positive and solution driven.
