HighwayGuard Steel Barrier

Introducing the HighwayGuard Barrier System

The HighwayGuard is a Game Changer in the steel barriers equipment space
– Ashley Woodcock – Director, RPM Hire

HighwayGuard steel barrier hire available in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Hobart. 

RPM Hire’s HighwayGuard barrier brings an unrivalled level of protection for workers and motorists. With TL-4 MASH rating, the highest rating available for temporary road barriers, it truly is the world’s safest temporary road barrier. The HighwayGuard is the next generation of portable, steel, road safety barrier, offering a low-deflection, with fewer components.

The HighwayGuard steel barrier system uses 6m modular sections, with integrated anchoring, drainage and forklift access points. The integral T-top design provides exceptional MASH TL-3 and TL-4 performance without the need for additional components. Shipping and transportation efficiencies and a reduction in footprint.
Installing optional wheelsets gives you the flexibility to create access points that can be opened and closed by hand in minutes. In 2021 the HighwayGuard Steel Barrier was a nominee for The Best New Product at Hire21, hosted by The Hire and Rental Industry Association (HRIA).

Symmetrical barrier sections with universal T-connector allows any section to connect to another, in either direction, significantly lowering installation time, operational costs and reducing inventory.
