Nu-Guard PVB® Steel Guardrail System

Nu-Guard® PVB® is a joint pedestrian and vehicle barrier that was developed for use by SCRIT for the Christchurch rebuild. Derived from the proven highway guardrail system Nu-Guard ® 31, this barrier system provides protection for all road users for local authority roads where the posted speed limit is below 70kph.

  • Vehicle crash retainment together with both pedestrian and cycle protection
  • Uses standard NUCOR® ground driven steel posts which enable faster installation (using post rammer) and with steel, longer post life
  • Uses the composite plastic NUCOR® Blockouts which are easy to install and durable
  • Can be retrofitted to existing Nu-Guard® 31 installations providing the posted speed limit is 70kph
  • Quick and easy to install using standard industry equipment
  • Can be manufactured to accommodate horizontal and vertical curves
  • Can be placed closer to walls allowing for increased shoulder, footpath or road width usage
  • No requirement for the posts to be installed in concrete foundations removing the need for costly bolt down options
  • Can be used with the Anchorbloc™ retaining wall system with no adverse effect to the vehicle impact performance of the barrier
  • Endorsed for use on local authority roads where the posted speed is limited to 70kph
  • System has a very low yield upon impact, making Nu-Guard® PVB® ideal for above retaining walls/structures where forces applied are important
  • Nu-Guard® PVB® is developed and manufactured in New Zealand
  • Infill balustrade is designed and manufactured to meet the residential building code
  • All components are hot dipped galvanised
  • Top rail meets the loading requirements of the NZ Building Code and the NZTA Bridge Manual
  • Standard highway rail and fixings
  • US Patent No. 9051699
