Our Background

Asset VRS is a division of Hill and Smith Ltd. The ‘vehicle restraint systems’ division of the business was established in 1998 to provide Varioguard temporary safety barriers to the highways sector. The business now provides a full installation service from strategically located depots around the UK and Ireland.

Asset is the leading supplier of temporary safety barriers in the UK. Asset also supply and install special low deflection permanent safety barriers, easy opening vehicular gates and crash cushions.

Storage and Operational Facilities

All products are stored in Asset VRS’s main depot, located in the docks area at Newport, South Wales. However, Asset VRS has established a core of strategically located storage and operational facilities throughout the UK and Ireland, based in Newport (South Wales), Southampton, Sevenoaks (Kent), Nottingham, Wigan, Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin.

Trained Installers

Asset VRS’ products are usually installed by in-house trained installers, with the exception of M.A.S.S., which is quick and easy to assemble in-situ. All products have National Highways Sector Scheme 2(b) training schemes to which installers are all accredited.

Within Asset’s continuous improvement programme, “in-house” installation training is provided through LANTRA approved schemes.

The Asset Drilling Rig (ADR) was developed to assist with keeping personnel safe from the dangers of works areas during barrier installation and give zero Hand Arm Vibration (HAV) during installation.
