THE DURABLE Median Separator SYSTEM
An estimated 20% crash rate reduction has been achieved by replacing full median openings with a median separator and directional/left-in only median openings using QWICK KURB Channelizing Systems.
Median Safety in the Harshest Environments
QWICK KURB® Continuous Curbing with Panels or Bollards has been tested for over 20 years in all weather conditions. Panels can accept 224 square inches of reflective sheeting per side to achieve the highest level of night visibility. In addition, the unique two-part vertical panel with rebounding boot support allows markers to remain upright in the most demanding environments.
A Permanent or Temporary Median Separator
A good practice in engineering a new traffic pattern is to start with an in-field evaluation of motorist behavior to identify any potential problems for access to local businesses before a traffic lane is permanently restricted. Because QWICK KURB Systems are approved for temporary use, lane restrictions can be managed until the desired traffic behavior has been fulfilled, the QWICK KURB Channelizing System can then be moved to the the next targeted area.
Surface Mount | Construction Planning Not Required
Installing traditional concrete curbs and medians can take months or years of planning before a horizontal deflection traffic calming plan can be implemented. Since the QWICK KURB Continuous Curbing System does not require any construction, it is a faster and safer way to realign traffic patterns in locations where it is determined immediate action will greatly reduce crashes.
Restricted access areas, where the QWICK KURB System is installed, encourages motorists to slow down, understand and predict what is happening around them.
Because the QWICK KURB continuous raised curb system is designed with high visibility in mind, a motorist has more decision time to navigate away from restricted access areas.
Interlocking Continuous Curb
Just like anchoring barrier wall, a secure connection between curbs is essential. Molding a heavy duty hook into the Continuous Longitudinal Channelizer strengthens the connection.
3.5 Inches High, No Vaulting
The unique two-tier design of the QWICK KURB System allows the channelizing curb to be as tall as possible without vehicle vaulting.
Molded rubber feet on the bottom of the curb raise the system above the road surface to facilitate water run-off.
The Strongest Bond
The combination of a smart two-tier design that can exert downward pressure during a run over, a lateral connection similar to portable concrete barrier and anchors secure the QWICK KURB System to the roadway.
QWICK KURB Panels connect to the curb base using the unique QWICK KURB two-part vertical rebounding flex boot support. This allows for installation of extra-tall 42 inch markers that can spring back to an upright position after an impact.
