A total of 900 tonnes of one and two-way traffic barriers will be installed between June and November this year.
“We will install the safety barriers at two newly reconstructed sections of the D1 motorway, from Jihlava to Velký Beranov and from Velká Bíteš to Devět křížů. Together, there will be 23 kilometres of one and two-way safety barriers with the Magnelis® coating, which represents roughly 900 tonnes of this product. Apart from the D1 motorway, we have already installed the same safety barriers on the I/11 road“ said Dagmar Raszková, safety barriers sales manager at ArcelorMittal Ostrava.
Magnelis® coating offers a revolutionary new form of steel corrosion protection. Compared with the standard zinc coating, the protective layer of Magnelis® is four times thinner, with its 25µm thickness sufficient for corrosion protection. The Magnelis® coating protects the steel barrier for twice as long - up to 40 years. This is enabled by the unique chemical composition which, besides zinc, also includes aluminium and magnesium. Thanks to the high durability and adhesion of the coating, the steel can be shaped using different methods of forming including bending, drawing and profiling.
