Dura Composites fibreglass roadblockers have been designed to protect pedestrians in vulnerable areas where anti-terrorist measures or enhanced perimeter security are required.

The fibreglass posts can be erected as permanent structures or alternatively can be installed into pre prepared sockets on the pavements or where ever the barriers are required and treated as demountable road block barriers.

When used as roadblockers on bridge pavements the fibreglass components can be erected quickly and efficiently without the need for heavy lifting equipment.

Made from high-strength low weight Pultruded fibreglass materials it offers protection at points of critical infrastructure and high profile public places, including airports, oil and gas, government buildings, data centres, military bases and stadiums, etc.

Dura Composites can supply both demountable and permanent roadblocks and barriers for virtually any scenario.

Artist’s Impression

Dura Composites’ demountable barriers are comprised of fibreglass posts reinforced with a steel I-beam and our market-leading Dura Slab fibreglass panels that can be easily erected, dismantled after use and stored away.

The demountable roadblock barriers are easily stored due to being relatively lightweight and can also be deployed rapidly as and when needed.

Artist’s Impression

Demountable road blockers and barriers are more pleasing to the eye than traditional concrete or steel roadblocker alternatives and take up far less space, making them ideal for scenarios where permanent defence barriers are unacceptable for reasons of visual intrusion or loss of amenity.

Road block barriers are commonly up to 1.2 metres high in modules of 0.6m high panels.

Dura Composites has designed a heavy duty Pultruded fibreglass post in the region of 320 mm x 275 mm which incorporates a rolled steel I-beam 254mm x 146m within the GRP structure, creating immense strength. The post has an “oval” profile and is fitted with a domed top cap. The appearance is aesthetically pleasing to the eye and safe as the posts have no sharp corners and the fibreglass lateral barrier are virtually integral with the oval shaped posts.

Dura Composites can also supply a solution for increasing parapet heights to meet required standards or for creating new barriers for the screening of chemical works or other hazards. Offering excellent security and protection, these fabrications are lightweight, easy to install and virtually maintenance free. There can be used for a wide range of applications, dependent on site conditions and can be cut to size on site using standard tools and equipment or can be supplied to site as a fully fabricated solution.

The pultruded Glassfibre Reinforced Plastics used to create our permanent and temporary road block barriers are resistant to corrosion and offer a range of other important benefits such as:

  • High Strength
  • Low Weight
  • Non-Conductive
  • Fire Resistant
  • UV Resistant
  • 50 Year Expected Lifespan
  • Suitable for Harsh Environments
  • Ideal for manual handling

Pultruded Fibreglass Roadblocks and Barrier profiles are manufactured by combining various resins with pure glassfibre reinforcement. They are formed and cured in a continuous process creating a product of extraordinary strength and resilience. The resultant profile offers a combination of benefits and mechanical properties exceeding those of metal. Weighing up to 80% less than steel and concrete, the material offers equivalent performance for considerably less weight. This results in major weight savings and lower installation and removal costs due to more economical transportation, handling and on site positioning. The high strength to weight ratio has particular relevance for many applications in the structural roadblock and barrier industry.
