BREAK-SAFE® OMNI-DIRECTIONAL BREAKAWAY SYSTEM

Transpo’s Break-Safe® Omni-Directional Breakaway System is for ground mounted signs located within roadside clear zones and other locations vulnerable to vehicular impacts. The omni-directional performance of Break-Safe® allows the system to break away with consistent, predictable behavior, regardless of the vehicle’s angle of impact, thus saving lives and reducing property damage.

Break-Safe® is designed to support a wide range of post sizes, up to and including the largest permitted by AASHTO. The flexibility built into the system gives you many choices when selecting post types and sizes for specific applications.

Features and Advantages

– supports a wide range of post sizes
– high-strength coupling and L-bracket design
– lowest stub height after impact
– rapid re-installation
– no special tools or equipment required
– high structural load-carrying capacity
– superior safety performance

Accident research and field experience have shown that vehicles often leave the roadway impacting structures at high angles of incident. Break-Safe® has been crash-tested, resulting in a FHWA acceptance letter based on NCHRP Report 350 and also accepted under MASH 08. New national signing standards specify increased sign sizes for visibility, in addition to increased wind load levels. These changes create a significant increase in structural demands on sign supports.

No special tools or equipment are required to install and maintain Break-Safe®. All components are easily secured using the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) turn-of-nut tightening method, eliminating the torque requirement typical with other breakaway systems.

POLE-SAFE® OMNI-DIRECTIONAL BREAKAWAY SUPPORTS

Transpo’s Pole-Safe® Omni-Directional Breakaway Support System features couplings designed to be used on poles located within roadside clear zones and other locations vulnerable to impacts. The primary component of the system is a high-strength coupling, engineered to break away quickly and cleanly upon impact. The poles break in a consistent, predictable fashion, regardless of the vehicle’s angle of impact, thus saving lives and reducing property damage.

Features and Advantages

– superior breakaway performance
– offers exceptional resistance to forces created by wind and dead loads
– designed for use with maximum allowable pole mass specified by AASHTO
– can be used on a large range of light pole sizes and configurations
– no special tools or equipment needed for installation
– couplings and hardware are hot-dip galvanized in accordance with ASTM A153 to provide corrosion-protection
– no torque requirement and maintenance free

Tested and Proven in use in North America since the 1970’s

Extensive finite element analysis and simulated wind-load testing has been used to optimize the system. Independent fatigue testing has demonstrated that Pole-Safe® couplings are capable of withstanding more than two million loading cycles with no reduction in structural capacity.

Pole-Safe® vehicle crash tests were conducted in accordance with NCHRP Report 350 using a 55 foot high, 930 pound pole.

Low initial cost along with high structural capacity and zero maintenance makes the Pole-Safe® Omni-Directional Breakaway Support System the most cost-effective solution for all breakaway applications.

SCREEN-SAFE® GLARE SCREEN SAFETY SHIELD

Transpo’s Screen-Safe® Glare Screen Safety Shield protects drivers and work zone crews from headlight glare and debris with a barrier fence. It is maintenance free and simple to install on guardrails and concrete barriers. Easily the safest and most effective glare screen and barrier fence for roadways on the market today, Screen-Safe® is excellent for both permanent installations and temporary work zone applications.

Screen-Safe® is made from a unique double-reversed corrugated (DRC) fabric, formed from hot-dipped galvanized sheet steel. The DRC fabric is powder-coated to provide additional protection from salt and snow. All steel assembly components make Screen-Safe® the most durable highway glare screen and work zone safety shield available to the transportation industry.

Screen-Safe® can be installed in permanent locations on concrete barriers and steel guardrails. Screen-Safe® is also ideal for curved roadways, access ramps, raised highways, construction lanes and toll booth plazas. For temporary work zone installations it can be quickly removed and reinstalled at a new location, with minimal disruption to traffic flow.

DRC Fabric: Screen-Safe® is fabricated from 25 gauge steel sheet, AISI 1010 or 1008, and hot-dip galvanized to ASTM A-653, coating designation G90. The finish is a light gray, medium-gloss powder-coat with zinc. It conforms to ASTM D 523 for gloss and B 117 for salt spray resistance, reference test for Bonderite. The film thickness minimum is 1.8 mils.

Hardware: All components are structural grade.

– Post Bolt- hex head machine bolt, ASTM A-307, H.D. galvanized ASTM A-153
– Concrete Anchor- steel, drop-in flush expansion anchor
– Splice Plate- ASTM 4140, H.D. galvanized A-123
– Steel/Wood Post Brackets- ASTM A-36, H.D. galvanized A-123
– End Cable Assembly- steel, aircraft cable with galvanized or stainless steel hardware

BONDADE® ASPHALT BONDING AGENT

Say Goodbye to Potholes!

Bondade® Asphalt Bonding Agent has been evaluated, proven and continuously used by agencies across the country for decades.  It is a highly effective solution designed to promote adhesion of asphaltic materials to a variety of substrates.

The coupling agents in Bondade® markedly extend the working life of asphalt repairs by securing a water insensitive bond between repair asphalt and the base materials. Bondade® should be used whenever new asphalt or bituminous concrete is being applied to either concrete, asphaltic surfaces or potholes.

Bondade® is easy to apply and requires no special equipment. Simply sweep the repair area of debris and water, spray Bondade, and then patch using your regular cold or hot asphalt mix.

Features and Advantages

– Lasts 85% Longer Than Other Methods
– Environmentally Safe Green Product
– Cost Effective
– VOC Compliant
– Will Not Irritate Skin
– No Smell, No Mess

Applications
Bondade® will enhance long-term durability on:

– Hot and Cold Patch Repairs
– Damp or Dry Holes
– Pavement Overlays
– Cold Joints
– Emergency Repairs
