Recent Work

Hinkley Point C - High Containment Barriers - Fleximax

The unique Fleximax high containment vehicle restraint system was installed to provide protection around the edge of the major excavation site.

Fleximax is an engineered Maxibloc barrier with steel hinges allowing the system to go around tight radiuses and angles, which was a requirement at this site.

Hinkley Point C - Multi Applicational Safety System (MASS)

Multi Applicational Safety System (M.A.S.S) barriers with Pedestrian Guard fencing was also installed across the site, creating clearly marked pedestrian walkways and vehicle access routes for staff and visitors.

The highly visible red and white steel barriers clearly separated the construction areas, while also protecting the large workforce, vehicle drivers and pedestrians from errant vehicles.

If an errant vehicle drives onto the base of the system, it helps to stabilise the barrier during impact.

To date, more than 10,000 metres of M.A.S.S barriers have been installed at Hinkley Point C.
