Our precision laser cutting services help to keep the UK’s Highways and Motorways safe by using our skills and expertise to manufacture crash barriers.
When you drive down a busy motorway the last thing you will probably think about is where and how products like the crash barriers in the middle of the road are manufactured. You wouldn’t think that these barriers have been manufactured by using state-of-the-art laser cutting production methods at SSC Laser Cutting
How do our laser cutting services support the UK Highways?
At SSC Laser Cutting we understand all too well that parts and components that are produced for use within the highways and highways maintenance industry must be produced to the highest safety standards. They must be durable and are produced with longevity in mind. We have the skills and technical understanding to produce high-quality precision laser cut components for use up and down the UK’s motorways and road systems.
When the unfortunate event of a crash on a motorway or highway occurs, there is a less likely possibility of a fatality when there is a high-quality motorway crash barrier in situ. Motorway crash barriers are designed to help prevent cars and vehicles from crossing one side of the carriageway to the other. They are also produced in order to absorb some of the energy created from the impact of a crash if one does occur.
SSC Laser Cutting produce and manufacture components and barrier parts that are directly supplied to the leading manufacturers of road safety barrier systems across the United Kingdom.
We also supply laser cut components that support manufacturers when they produce motorway signage.
Why do these manufacturers use SSC Laser Cutting?
