Hardstaff Barriers has launched a low-carbon precast concrete barrier, the REBLOC RB80XA H1 as part of its commitment to meeting net zero across its operations by 2040.
The REBLOC RB80XA H1 requires 50% less steel and 20% less concrete compared to the original model and, by using a low-carbon concrete mix in its production, further reduces CO² emissions by 33%.
The barrier has been crash tested to meet EN1317 standards and, on production of 1,000m, offers a 5,250kg reduction in steel and requires 40mᶟ less concrete.
“The REBLOC RB80XA H1 has transformed our precast offering with a rigid concrete barrier which significantly minimises carbon impact. Combine this with a product that has been designed to achieve minimal civils work and managed construction risk – meaning decreased site time, reduced site traffic, and shorter construction programmes – and we are delivering a real positive contribution to the sector’s overall carbon impact,” said Bullock.
“As a business, we are consistently exploring product innovations that ensure our manufacturing and installation systems are sustainable and drive our decarbonization target.”
