SISTEMAS DE PROTECCION PARA SEGURIDAD VIAL SL (BASYC) is a highly innovative Spanish company which is based in Madrid but which has its distribution centre in Zaragoza. The main product of the company is an innovative road restraint system which has been approved by the Spanish Government and has been installed in the centre of Madrid to ensure increased safety for all road users. BASYC is a highly motivated and progressive SME firmly focused on road safety.

In the development of its road restraint system, BASYC collaborated extensively with associations of vulnerable road users to establish gaps in current systems and assess what recommendations these user groups would like to see implemented. It is an SME and has collaborated in national and regional projects with prestigious RTD centres in the field of containment systems.

Associations of motorcyclists demand the incorporation of measures and systems that are safe to be used by all types of users and vehicles, “from a motorcycle to a truck or a bus”.

As a result, the Spanish regulating authorities created a norm to evaluate the behavior of the protection systems, the norm UNE 135900 from AENOR that defines the procedure that must be fulfilled so that a barrier can be accepted like a protective barrier for motorists

  • According to these tests, a barrier must be able to absorb the energy that is given off after an impact to 110 kilometers per hour and the dummy does not have to undergo any type of breakage, cuts or dismemberment produced by any of the parts of the parapet.
  • Subject will not be able either to have left the dummy in the barrier, so that it cannot be freed without tools. In addition, in the case of the continuous protection systems, the dummy must not be able to pass the system and no element of the barrier may be allowed to break off

BASYC has designed a continuous non-rigid system, for the absorption of impacts and for the protection of motorcyclists and cyclists, which diminishes the collision force and avoids the exit under the security barriers or parapets.

Test made on the containment system have easily surpassed all tests required by current legislation BMSNA4/120 according to OC 321/95, and those based on norm UNE 135900-1,2
