Sarum Hardwood – Highway parapets

Hardwood Structures are pleased to announce that their Highways Agency P2(80) highway timber parapet used around the country in areas where a sensitive and harmonious solution is required to low level containment for traffic on bridges and highways, has now been successfully re-tested by MIRA and now this very innovative parapet has the newer N1 classification.

The test was carried out to EN1317:2010 for normal Containment Level N 1 test designation TB31, 1500kg test vehicle travelling at 80km/h and at 20deg to traffic face.

The parapet is a 3 rail all hardwood design which when installed is completely maintenance free, very attractive and blends in with the surrounding countryside.

The system has been used very successfully around the country and now with the N1 certificate has been brought completely up to date with a modern test vehicle and to the new stringent tests and data that are now required.

There are parts of the country where for various reasons metal containment parapets seem out of character with the surrounding area and this is where Sarum Hardwood Ltd now have an ideal solution. SHS is always available for consultation and would be pleased to offer advice on the suitability of our highway parapets for a specific project, and also to discuss our other timber structures including Bridges, Boardwalks and Jetties.
