The Rubberised concrete safety barrier, T-Lok Rubber Safety Barriers have been developed by Saferoads and researchers from the University of Melbourne’s Advanced Protective Technologies of Engineering Structures (APTES) Research Group, with funding and support from Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA).
In late 2022 a Rubber T-Lok prototype was crash tested at 100km per hour, and the results showed that the inclusion of rubberised concrete barrier decreased impact severity compared to standard barriers.
Rubber T-Lok is the first temporary barrier to use recycled content, the use of recycled end of life tyres enhances the durability and flexibility of barrier resulting in better energy absorption, enhance safety and increased barrier lifespan.
Rubber T-Lok safety barriers have received ASBAP approval
For every 1km of Rubber T-Lok Barrier produced, 12 tonnes of recycled tyres are used – equivalent to 2,000 passenger tyres.
