What we do

The Brifen VRS

Used globally, the Brifen VRS is tested to international standards and is designed to capture, contain and redirect a vehicle upon impact. With both N2, H1 and H2 systems available, the Brifen range is inclusive of tested and approved transitions and end terminals to complete the wire rope arrangement.

Brifen VRS is a suitable alternative when wider working widths can be achieved due to its flexibility. It is tested and approved to EN1317, NCHRP 350 and MASH.

Wire Rope

Our portfolio consists of N2 (TL3) and H1 (TL4) systems. For seamless connection between the two barrier systems, Hill & Smith supply a tested and approved transition. To complete the wire rope arrangement, the Brifen VRS comes with an end terminal that is tested and approved to EN1317.
