Hire Ironman Hybrid Steel Safety Barrier

Ironman Hybrid Barrier

Crash tested &
free standing

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.

The Ironman Hybrid Barrier rental is one of our innovations and adaptations of our original form of this barrier. It offers excellent flexibility for 40 and 60km/h projects. This freestanding temporary longitudinal approved crash barrier hire system has been successfully crash tested to MASH TL-2.

This steel temporary barrier has an Austroads Safety Barrier Assessment Panel (ASBAP) approval to 70km/h. Its 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 solution when it comes to temporary crash barriers for hire, and all deployments will be solely managed and certified by the Road Safety Rental team.

Radius Solution for Ironman Hybrid Barriers

Ironman Hybrid Barriers can be deployed with a Steel Wedge (engineered angle pieces) to accommodate continuous traffic barrier deployment on tight radius projects. The Steel Wedge piece is incorporated in-between individual Ironman Hybrid temporary barriers allowing placement at tighter radii, offering a significant advantage over traditional barrier deployments as the radius can be as tight as 10m.

  • ASBAP approval to 60km/h
  • Facilitates placement of Ironman Hybrid Barriers at tighter radii
  • Enables the Ironman Hybrid barrier to be deployed on a radius as tight as 10m
  • 5m design deflection where wedges are used
  • Improved efficiency during staged intersection deployment
  • Vast improvement on safety due to the continuous barrier placement without the need for crash cushions

Bitu-Mill Infrastructure - Midland Hwy (Stage 2), Buninyong

Bitu-Mill were awarded this contract in late 2020. The project incorporated a significant number of stages, which led to the decision to utilise Ironman Hybrid Barriers to ensure a high standard of workzone protection throughout these works. The project has run smoothly to date with a number of shifts completed.

The versatile and easy demobilisation and re-deployment capacity of the Ironman Hybrid Barrier resulted in a significant cost reduction and increased efficiencies from a construction program perspective. Ironman Hybrid has been the perfect temporary barrier for this 40km/h to 60km/h project site.

Bitu-Mill Infrastructure - Midland Hwy, Shepparton

As significant works continue on the Midland Hwy as part of the SSRIP program, the Road Safety Rental team have had a substantial deployment along the Midland Hwy since the second half of 2020. The works have consisted of several long sections of works and significant barrier shifts between stages. In scorching temperatures over 30 degrees and some enormous challenges on site, the record for the most amount of Ironman Hybrid Barrier deployed in a single shift, by a single crew was broken…

The Road Safety Rental team demobilised a whopping 1158m and re-installed an astonishing 1308m of barrier. This was an enormous feat and the Bitu-Mill Construction team may never forget this milestone and achievement.

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.


Temporary Crash Cushion

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.

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.
