About Saferoad vRS
Saferoad operate all over the British Isles and are one of the country's leading specialists in the supply and installation of :-
Vehicle Restraint Systems (VRS)
Saferoad supply, install and repair all types of Vehicle Restraint System (VRS) that are fully compliant with BS EN 1317 and non-proprietary systems. We currently have our own suite of VRS (Megarail) that has been approved by the Highways Agency. This suite of systems can be installed in the majority of situations, but we are continuously researching and developing new innotive systems to compliment or improve our product. This includes a P4 terminal that only has two posts, can be used as a dual sided P4 and in the event of an impact can be replaced in as little as 20 minutes, so keeping installation and maintenance costs down. Because we actually install our own products and do not simply supply we are in a position to give first class technical advice to all our clients.
Steel and Aluminium Parapets
Saferoad supply, install and repair a variety of steel and aluminium parapet products from H4a through N2, N1 and transitions which are compliant with BS EN 1317. We also repair existing BS 6779 parapets that require remedial work due to decay or road traffic accidents. The parapets can be painted, or powder coated if required. We also offer retro-fit height extensions, anti-access panels, pedestrian guardrail and can undertake specialist projects.

About Parapet Working width
Parapet systems with a working width of up to and including W4 are both perfectly acceptable on the Highways Agencys Road Network and fully complaint with TD 19/06.
Within the Guidance on the use of the Road Restraint Risk Assessment Process (RRRAP) associated with TD 19/06 it states that designers should check and specify the greatest working width that meets the requirement of paragraphs 4.14 an 4.15 of TD 19/06 which may be greater than the default W2 the RRRAP returns.
All of our parapet systems are EN 1317 tested and comply fully with the requirements of TD 19/06, our parapet systems have also been designed so that they use their working width to absorb the high impact energy generated from a collision. During this time our vehicle parapet systems protect the driver or passenger whilst it contains and redirects the errant vehicle in a controlled and safe manner, at no point do the vehicle wheels leave the bridge plinth.

Thank you for any funds you donated towards this years sponsored walk
On 8th June 2019 a team of Saferoad colleagues took on a charity walk over the Lake Districts' Bow Fell. The walk was 10 miles and climbed 3,340 feet over true mountain terrain.
On this occasion we raised £3,033.75 for the charity Hull and East Yorkshire Mind a mental health charity offering bereavement support to anybody that has lost a loved one through suicide.
This is the second annual charity walk completed by Saferoad colleagues the first being 26th May 2018 completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks.
Thank you for any funds donated we really appreciate your support!
Saferoad's Scafell Pike Charity Walk 2020
Saferoad’s 3rd Charity walk is to take place on 27th June 2020 over the Lake Districts’ Scafell Pike. Saferoad are fundraising to support the work undertaken by the STROKE Association.
When a stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. Life changes instantly and recovery is tough. But the brain can adapt. Our specialist support, research and campaigning are only possible with the courage and determination of the stroke community. With more donations and support from you, we can rebuild even more lives.
There are 1.2 Million stroke survivors in the UK and over 100,000 strokes a year. That is one every 5 minutes. The effects can be devastating.
The STROKE association is a charity we hold close to our hearts at Saferoad. One of our own site Managers Adrian Freeman has recovered from 2 within a 9 year period. The Stroke association were paramount to his recovery. Without this support and care we don’t know where he would be today. I think we all know, or know of someone that has been effected by a stroke.
In order to raise funds for the STROKE Association 21 employees of Saferoad staff have volunteered to take the challenge of Scafell Pike. The walk is 12 miles through rough terrain with the highest point being 978m/3209ft above sea level, this should take around 9-10 hours to complete.
Please support our cause. All donations welcomed.
