Road restraint systems - Part 5: Product requirements, test and assessment methods and acceptance criteria

This European Standard specifies requirements, test/assessment methods, acceptance criteria and
methods for verification of constancy of performance of the following vehicle restraint systems to be used
as temporary or permanent on the roads and in vehicle circulation areas:
a) safety barriers (including vehicle parapets)
b) crash cushions
c) terminals
d) transitions (including Removable Barrier Sections)

Introduction

In order to improve and maintain road safety, the design of safer roads requires, on certain sections of road

and at particular locations, the installation of road restraint systems. These road systems are designated to

redirect and/or contain errant vehicles safely or to reduce the severity of vehicle impact with a more resistive

object, for the benefit of the occupants and other road users, including pedestrians. This will happen on

sections of road and at particular locations open to vehicle traffic, defined by the National or Local Authorities

with a specified performance level or category, chosen among those defined in this standard.

Additionally, the performances of road restraint systems and other information indicated in the standard and in

the Annexes can be useful for the installation by road safety designer or National or Local Authority.

0 Not evaluated or does not fulfill class 1, 2, 3 or 4
1 Very poor resistance
2 Poor resistance
3 Moderate resistance
4 Good resistance
The acceptance criteria for categories 1, 2, 3 and 4 are given in Annex C.

NOTE Resistance to snow removal is not applicable for terminals and crash cushions.

4.1.3 Test vehicle deformation

The purpose of VCDI is to report a standard description of the deformation of vehicle interior (cars only), to

help the understanding of the severity of the impact and shall reflect damage to the vehicle caused by the

impact with the vehicle restraint system, and not any secondary impacts. This index designates both the

location and the extent of the deformation of the cockpit.
It consists of 2 alphabetic characters plus 7 numeric characters, in the form:
XXabcdefg.

When assessed according to 5.1.3, the VCDI, shall be measured according to EN1317-1:2010 subclause

8.2.2, and shall comply with EN1317-1:2010, subclause 8.2.3.
4.1.4 Height of safety barrier

The height of safety barrier can represent a hazard (e.g. for the head impact when breaking the lateral

windows during an impact, accidents to pedestrians, etc.). The height can also have implications in snow

removal or in stopping sight distance.

NOTE In some countries, there might be provisions which require a different height from what is expressed in the

standard, for safety reasons.

When assessed according to 5.1.4, result shall confirm manufacturer’s declaration.

The Containment height (H ) shall be always determined. Handrail height (H ) and plinth-related heights

c hand

(H and H ) shall be determined when handrails are present or when barriers are used on plinth.
