It offers a deflection of 2.3m, so it's strong. Deflection
can be varied to meet road/terrain requirements.
Utilizes strong (up to 100 KSI yield strength) yet economical
4 lb. Nucor Marion Steel Rib-Bak® posts, galvanized
for long life.
Its appearance makes it an attractive alternative to traditional W-beam and concrete barriers.
And then there's cost - 50%

up to 20% less than other high-tension cable systems.
The high-tension system utilizes cost-effective standard
¾" steel cables
, tensioned up to 5,600 lbs.
(25KN), and attached to Nucor Rib-Bak
U-channel steel posts by unique locking
hook bolts that absorb energy during crashes.
It is anchored at both ends into FHWA approved
Cable Release Posts.
Only the NU-CABLE™ High Tension Cable Barrier System
offers these performance and
Easy to maintain and repair,
therefore the lower installation costs are augmented by continuing savings.
NCHRP 350-approved system that tested superior in deflection tests to competitive cable system that uses plastic
inserts instead of hook bolts.
Posts can be driven in soil, installed
in sleeves set in asphalt, or installed with concrete foundations.
Cables are tensioned on site and tension can be customized by installers to meet site needs.
The system is visually appealing, see-through, and allows snow to pass through preventing buildup and potential ramping.
