The F-Shape Concrete Barrier is a concrete crash barrier originally designed to divide lanes of traffic on highways. The lower sloped face redirects vehicles under low impact conditions, promoting better vehicle stability while maintaining vehicle direction. In crash tests, the F-Shape Concrete Barrier has proven to be more successful in preventing rollover of smaller vehicles.
A large mass of reinforced concrete absorbs impact and resists penetration through a controlled deflection of the barrier.
A gently sloped ramp, which tends to raise the impacting vehicle. Contact with the undercarriage causes the vehicle to slow down rapidly while being returned safely to its original line of travel.
