Thursday, April 25, 2019 8:00 AM

MIDLAND, VA / ACCESSWIRE / April 25, 2019 / Easi-Set Worldwide, a subsidiary of Smith-Midland Corporation (OTCQX: SMID), announced that it received approval from The California Department of Transportation for its MASH TL3 tested J-J Hooks temporary restrained (pinned or bolted) precast concrete safety barrier.

This marks the first penetration of the J-J Hooks brand into California, the 2nd largest market in the U.S. with over 26 million drivers and almost 400,000 lane miles of roadway.

The barrier, in 12.5-foot lengths, sustained dynamic deflections of 5.9-inches when bolted (using only two bolts) and 8.8-inches when pinned (using three pins). The restrained design received FHWA Federal Aid Eligibility Letters B 52B and B 52C respectively.

J-J Hooks offers state/provincial transportation authorities a family of MASH TL3 tested temporary precast concrete barrier for immediate use on their roadways. Available are two free-standing tested designs (12-foot & 20-foot lengths) and the restrained (bolted or pinned) design described above.

Thirty-four state/provincial authorities have approved J-J Hooks restrained barrier, as an alternate to their standard barrier, for use on their roadways. Additional approvals have been requested and are expected shortly.

To date, nearly 15,000,000 LF of J-J Hooks have been provided to state construction projects worldwide, including 500,000 LF of MASH approved barriers. All J-J Hooks barrier designs utilize the same J-Hook connection system which provides the industry's fastest installation and removal capability, has integral self-aligning connection guides, and requires no loose hardware.
