What we do
Hill & Smith are an official distributor of the Rondino Roads' GRP highway barriers, tested to EN 1317.
Established in 1877, Rondino Roads was the first manufacturer in the world to create the concept of a timber-steel guardrail. Based in France, Rondino Roads have 3 factories across 90 acres and have supplied over 4,000km of timber-steel guardrail around the world and now, they’re partnering with Hill & Smith to expand their offering across the UK.
The corrugated steel barrier with Timber clad is tested and approved to EN 1317, with containment levels of N2 to H1. The GRP system is the newest timber-steel barrier suite in their range and offers a breadth of working widths from W2 to W7. This range is complementary to the Hill & Smith Flexbeam VRS and is a viable alternative when an aesthetic finish is preferential.
The GRP suite is made from PINUS Class 4 and under goes a full wood treatment service. As a result, the GRP systems can offer a life span of up to 30 years’. The quality and durability of these systems makes them suitable across different geographical climates.
