Nu-Guard® PVB® Steel Guardrail System

Nu-Guard® PVB® is a joint pedestrian and vehicle barrier that was developed for use by SCRIT for the Christchurch rebuild. Derived from the proven highway guardrail system Nu-Guard ® 31, this barrier system provides protection for all road users for local authority roads where the posted speed limit is below 70kph.


  Vehicle crash retainment together with both pedestrian and cycle protection
  Uses standard NUCOR®  ground driven steel posts which enable faster installation (using post rammer) and with steel, longer post life
  Uses the composite plastic NUCOR®   Blockouts which are easy to install and durable
  Can be retrofitted to existing Nu-Guard® 31   installations providing the posted speed limit is 70kph
  Quick and easy to install using standard industry equipment
  Can be manufactured to accommodate horizontal and vertical curves
  Can be placed closer to walls allowing for increased shoulder, footpath or road width usage
  No requirement for the posts to be installed in concrete foundations removing the need for costly bolt down options
  Can be used with the Anchorbloc™ retaining wall system with no adverse effect to the vehicle impact performance of the barrier


  Endorsed for use on local authority roads where the posted speed is limited to 70kph
  System has a very low yield upon impact, making Nu-Guard® PVB®   ideal for above retaining walls/structures where forces applied are important
  Nu-Guard® PVB®   is developed and manufactured in New Zealand
  Infill balustrade is designed and manufactured to meet the residential building code
  All components are hot dipped galvanised
  Top rail meets the loading requirements of the NZ Building Code and the NZTA Bridge Manual
