MIDLAND, VA / ACCESSWIRE / July 8, 2024 / Easi-Set Worldwide a subsidiary of Smith-Midland Corporation (NASDAQ:SMID), has developed a J-J Hook™ Low-Profile Portable Concrete Barrier. The Company has been issued a provisional patent from the US Patent Office, has successfully crash-tested the barrier to the MASH 16 TL2 guidelines, and obtained a Federal Highway Association (FHWA) Letter of Eligibility (B-379).

"This new low-profile barrier provides road users, workers, and pedestrians with improved visibility and positive protection. This barrier is a much safer and faster system for workers in the field to install and also provides significant monetary savings to the State DOTs and the FHWA due to the reduced cost of manufacturing and installation," said Art Miles, President, Easi-Set Industries.

All Smith-Midland proprietary infrastructure products are based on the principle of ongoing innovative development that protects and saves lives and this new product does just that. This particular barrier stands out from other low-profile barrier, because the Easi-Set J-J Hook allows installation without extra connection hardware, making it safer for the workers to install.
