How It Works

One-meter sections of highly reinforced concrete are pinned together at each end to form a continuous barrier wall. The barriers have a “T” top, which acts as a lifting surface for the Barrier Transfer Machine (BTM). The BTM lifts the barrier and passes it through a conveyor system, transferring the barrier from 4 to 18 feet (1.2 m to 5.5m) in one pass for construction or from 8 to 24 feet (2.4m to 7.3m) for managed lanes. The ends of the barrier are protected with the ABSORB 350® crash cushion. The ABSORB 350 is a water-filled crash cushion that is also pinned together with a “T” top so that it can articulate through the BTM for seamless operation of the entire system.
