Galvanised steel safety barrier.

About Varioguard

Safety first from Asset VRS

Varioguard can be installed using the Asset Drilling Rig (ADR), providing ZERO Hand Arm Vibration.

When used as a temporary safety barrier Varioguard is usually drilled and fixed at each end.

With a huge rental pool of Varioguard located at depots around the UK and Ireland, small installations to many kilometres can be serviced. Emergency call-outs to any part of the UK are routinely responded to within hours.

Asset’s concrete block anchor system allows Varioguard and Zoneguard barriers to be installed quickly and simply without the need for road surface preparation. Ideal for use on bridge decks and protected road surfaces.

Asset’s Safe Taper set-up removes the requirement of cones on the run up to a works scheme.

Standard Elements

Asset VRS’s Varioguard is a galvanised steel safety barrier, with a unit length of 4,000 mm, a height of 900 mm, and a base width of 700 mm.

A box beam on top of the unit is connected by SIGMA type posts to the unit base. These posts are bi-directional, and because the system is bolted together, they are field replaceable.

The standard element has a weight of only 400 kg and incorporates an integrated drainage section of 120 mm x 70 mm.


Single Sided

Asset VRS’s Varioguard Single Sided is a rigid energy absorbing barrier system that offers protection to both the travelling public and pedestrians.

With its narrow foot profile, Varioguard Single Sided is the ideal application for central reservation and verges where the requirement for set-back and clearance cannot be obtained with other barrier systems. It is ideally suited where PVCBs are unacceptable due to the presence of services or other constraints and obstructions, such as signs and lighting columns.


Bespoke Varioguard

Varioguard bespoke systems are an ideal solution. These bespoke systems can accommodate tight horizontal and vertical curves, manholes and access points to ducts can be bridged and accessed with site-specific designed and built units.
