Traffic Signs Regulations & General Directions
All temporary traffic barriers must be able to withstand three different classes of wind speeds with the use of a ballast. The standard BS 8442:2006 states the three classes as the following:
Class A: 26.3 m/s (58mph)
Class B: 17.6 m/s (39mph)
Class C: 8.7m/s (19mph)
The Gate Barrier system was tested under strict conditions at the Full Scale Wind Tunnel at Mira to determine at which wind speeds the barrier can withstand. Below are the results and guides as to the recommended ballast weight for each Wind Class:
Class C - Withstood up to 19.4mph so recommended Ballast Weight = 0kg.
Class B - Withstood up to 42.3mph so recommended Ballast Weight = 40kg.
Class A - Withstood up to 59.1mph so recommended Ballast Weight = 90kg.
Boxed - Withstood up to 59.4mph so recommended Ballast Weight = 70kg
