Through rigorous development we have produced a system that can rightly be considered a major safety achievement. The high-energy absorption of Protect 365® during impacts has been proven to minimise injury levels and increase the safety of drivers and passengers.
Steel lighting columns for road safety
Tata Steel boasts more than 60 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of steel lighting columns. Our product portfolio includes a range of tubular columns from 3m to 12m heights, together with a variety of shaft and base diameters to suit individual customer requirements.
Tata Steel supplies a wide range of bracket arms with a unique column to shaft connection. Our columns come with rounded doors, a double lock for extra security can be requested on demand.
Each column is hot-dipped galvanised and we offer a wide range of polysiloxane paint finishes, including glass flake epoxy and various MIO solutions
Highways restraint system
Safety is at the heart of our system designs, and with pioneering use of advanced simulation technology, Tata Steel can satisfy the future safety demands of road design. Using advanced simulation technology, we can accurately predict the behaviour of safety barrier and parapets with modern vehicles in various impact scenarios.
This innovative and thorough approach to research and development provides Tata Steel with an in-depth knowledge of impact behaviour, knowledge that has enabled us to design an evolutionary highways restraint system.
