A Customised Integrated Barrier ‘Rig’

Connect Plus Services have now received their new custom designed integrated barrier ‘rig’. The rig features a Palfinger extendable crane, an Orteco piling rig (which is remotely operated), and a rear accessed protected load area, mounted on an extended vehicle.

It offers various options to create a generally safer and more productive operation, with options such as side shift, which allows for the plant to manoeuvre into place instead of previously moving the entire barrier rig into position. Post extraction will be far more controlled than the previous plant, creating a safer working environment.

Previously, this equipment would have been mounted on separate chassis/trailers. This integrated vehicle allows work at the side of the carriageway to be carried out in single journey, reducing time. There is also a cost saving and reduced environmental impact from use of a single vehicle.

Some of the key features include:

  • The vehicle access platform at the rear of the rig creates a safer access for operatives to enter and exit the vehicle bed.
  • Increased lifting capacity.
  • Built-in axle weight calculator, aiding the driver in compliance and safety.
  • All-around vehicle sensors, aiding the driver in safer operating and manoeuvring.
  • The ability to adapt into an extra effort vehicle and be fitted with a front mounted plough during those snowy periods.
