RHINO-STOP® Truck-Guard

RHINO-STOP® Truck Guard

Rhino-Stop® Truck-Guard is a heavy duty, high containment guardrail barrier which has been expertly crafted to protect high centre of gravity vehicles, making it suitable for use as a carpark barrier system, as well as a safety barrier in warehouse site applications.

Featuring a carefully engineered base plate design that requires only 2 anchor bolts per post, Rhino-Stop® Truck-Guard will yield upon impact to effectively absorb up to 40 KN impact energy, without any damage to the anchors and concrete substrate.

The upper guardrail of Rhino-Stop® Truck-Guard has been designed to withstand an impact force occurring up to 1.0m above floor level, while the bottom guardrail has the capacity to withstand an impact force up to 0.5m above floor level.

In view of its robust systemic design and capabilities, it is easy to see why Rhino-Stop® Truck-Guard is considered the ultimate barrier solution for heavy vehicle protection Australia-wide.

Features and Benefits

  • Rhino-Stop® Truck-Guard is a fully modular carpark barrier which has been manufactured in accordance with Australian Building Code specifications and features 2m post spacing.
  • The carpark barrier system is simplistic in its design and only requires 2 anchor bolts per post, lending itself to a quick and easy installation process.
  • Being a high impact, heavy vehicle protection barrier, Rhino-Stop® Truck-Guard has a sturdy design that can be configured with a balustrade and anti-climb mesh infill, making it an ideal choice for site applications which require fall protection for pedestrians.
  • The energy absorbing technology used in Rhino-Stop® Truck-Guard prevents damage to the concrete substrate, preserving the system’s durability.
  • Rhino-Stop® Truck-Guard carpark barrier come with hot dip galvanised components (with the option of a powder-coated finish) reinforcing its stability and enhancing the aesthetic appeal.
  • The versatile nature of Rhino-Stop® Truck-Guard makes customised solutions possible for non-standard applications, if required.

How Rhino-Stop® Truck-Guard Works

The defining features of Rhino-Stop® posts are the long cuts in the base plate which essentially break the plate into three fingers connected by a common stem.

The fingers allow the mounting of the post to occur in an upright fashion by enabling a separation from the anchor(s).

The Rhino-Stop® Truck-Guard carpark barrier system incorporates a unique patented yielding base plate that minimises the peak loads transferred to post anchors.

These base plates effectively absorb the kinetic energy of an impacting vehicle, reducing the forces transferred through the anchor bolts to prevent concrete substrate damage.

Upon impact from a vehicle or heavy load, a plastic hinge forms at the location where the fingers can be found on the post.

Once the post is mounted, a backward rotation is set into motion, as the load capacity of the plastic hinge is designed to be less than the pull-out capacity of the anchor bolt.

The deflection of the system allows for greater load transfer to adjacent posts, thereby sharing the impact load from the vehicle – providing the highest level of protection from high speed impacts.

The Rhino-Stop® range of carpark barriers is designed, manufactured and tested to comply with Australian and International Industry Standards. Rhino-Stop® Truck-Guard has been crash test validated under conditions representative of heavy vehicles with high centre of gravity impact loads and has demonstrated compliance with AS/NZS 1170.
