CSIR has come out with a glass textile reinforced concrete crash barrier. The most popularly used crash barrier is made up of reinforced concrete (RC), which has high rigidity but poor energy absorption. When a vehicle collides with the RC crash barrier, the vehicle is seriously damaged and occupants may be fatally injured due to the impact of collision. To enhance the safety of road users, a pre-fabricated glass textile reinforced concrete crash barrier system (GTRC CRABS) that is flexible, elastic and having the ability to absorb more energy, with appropriate connection mechanism is developed at CSIR-SERC. The single unit of GTRC CRABS is having one-third the weight of conventional precast RC crash barrier and are easy to handle and transport.
Its advantages are its Light-weight prefabricated units, non-corrosive and durable, ease of installation and replacement, safer than conventional RC crash barriers, adaptable for use in narrower spaces in interior roads and better cost-benefit ratio
