Addison, TX – Valtir, LLC – the industry leader and global supplier of commercial highway products, is excited to announce our exclusive agreement with Highway Care Ltd. to manufacture, rent, and sell the MASH-tested HighwayGuard™ Barrier in North America.
The HighwayGuard™ Barrier is a portable, longitudinal redirecting steel barrier made of lightweight, galvanized steel segments tested to MASH 16 TL-3 and TL-4. It is designed to help reduce work zone congestion in high traffic areas and is available in both a standard and a lowest deflection system.
The system was developed by Highway Care, a UK-based global innovator of high-performance infrastructure solutions tested to a range of international standards.
Through its partnership with Highway Care, Valtir broadens its commitment to delivering innovative roadway solutions with the introduction of HighwayGuard™ – the next generation of portable steel barrier – to the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
“This strategic partnership with Highway Care will enable us to offer a MASH-tested, low-deflection barrier system in North America. We believe the market will be enthusiastic about the versatility of the HighwayGuard with its simplified design, smaller footprint, and narrow profile,” said Jim Crowley, VP of New Product Development Sales & Marketing for Valtir.
According to Ben Duncker, Business Development Director for Highway Care, “Trinity’s industry-leading reputation and existing portfolio of products complement HighwayGuard perfectly. We believe this combination create the foundations for a very successful partnership, and the future evolution of steel barriers in North America.”
