Barriers are commonly used along vehicular routes, whether they are public highways, roads, or race tracks. These protective barriers are always designed to save lives in two ways: by protecting those behind the barriers and those unfortunate enough to collide with the barriers.

The racetrack is filled with thrills, which also means track-side spills and a high level of risk for driver teams and organizers. The edge of a racetrack is a dangerous place, either because of the risk of high-speed impact from vehicles. The track edge also serves as a buffer zone, protecting spectators from the dangers of a vehicle leaving the track unexpectedly and with significant momentum behind it.

When it comes to track safety, Polycon's road barriers are strong, sturdy, and flexible because they are made of high-density UV-Stabilized polyethylene material, which is safe and low impact in the event of an accident, protecting vehicles and passengers. They are easy and quick to deploy on your track and even faster to replace when damaged. This serves as traffic and crowd control in your facility which eliminates many problems associated with the safety track systems. These track barriers are commonly used on racetracks to protect portions of the infield or to shield openings.

Our safety barrier protection is suitable for all applications, particularly track sides, as it aids in the prevention of accidents.

• Sustaining the impact of errant vehicles

• Lowering the risk of injury and death to those inside vehicles

• Stopping errant vehicles from entering team zones and crowded spectator areas – with maximum safety on all sides

• Reducing the risk of spectator and track-side personal injury and death.

• Make your appearance more professional.

• Configurable and adaptable to any situation.

• It reduces replacement costs because it is durable and long-lasting.

As a result, a track-side barrier has a lot to do. Every time a vehicle speeds by, spectators, track-side support crews behind the barrier are all in danger while racing drivers put themselves in danger every time they strap in and start up.
