HIGHWAY BARRIER CABLE DESIGNED TO ABSORB CROSSOVER IMPACT
On the highways today, you’re likely to see a growing use of high-tension cable systems to prevent cross-over collisions. The systems are proving themselves to save lives, be reliable and easily maintained. Consequently, more states than ever are approving their use. Union’s zinc-coated steel wire rope, often referred to as “barrier cable”, is an integral part of the system’s success.
Manufactured to exceed the ASTM A741 standards and meeting the US Department of Transportation Buy America requirements, our barrier cable is produced with the greatest care and expertise. Our world renowned engineers and logistics personnel stand ready to meet your needs.
