Assembly Specialty is ISO 9001:2008 with design certified.
Cable barriers are more forgiving than traditional concrete or steel barriers. They function by capturing and/or redirecting vehicles to prevent the severity of run-off-road collisions, prevent vehicular impact with roadside objects as well as potential head-on collisions. Their flexibility absorbs impact energy and dissipates it which reduces the forces transmitted to the vehicle occupants and lessens the likelihood of the vehicle overturning. Used since the 1960s, it wasn’t until the mid-1990s that many departments of transportation began to deploy them with regularity.
Roadside safety hardware must undergo rigorous testing before it can be used on the national highway system in the United States and around the world. Assembly Specialty has been providing guard rail wire rope assemblies and hardware that meet these guidelines for more than 30 years. Assembly Specialty is the optimal choice for Breakaway Cable Terminals (BCT), Guide Rail Strand and Hardware/Cable Anchor Devices; Torpedo Splice, Hook Bolts, Spring Compensators and Cable Ends, all manufactured for safety, strength, durability and cost effectiveness.
