horizont Bike Lanes - More space, more safety!

More and more cities and municipalities are investing in alternatives to public transport in the wake of the corona crisis and the resultant distance regulations. Many of these concepts for the improvement of urban infrastructure include the installation of temporary cycle paths in highly frequented traffic areas. However, the implementation of so-called "pop up bike lanes" often poses a challenge to those responsible, as there are a number of aspects to consider in addition to traffic safety. 

As one of the world's leading manufacturers of equipment for traffic safety, horizont Traffic Safety provides an easy to implement and proven solution. horizont Guide Curb has already been successfully used in the area of traffic guidance management for decades, in combination with the horizont Leitboys.

The system is extremely sturdy and guarantees a stable and reliable positioning without having to be bolted or glued to the ground.  
Not only because of its flexible applicability, but also due to its easy installation properties, horizont Guide Curb is used throughout the world when it comes to implementing temporary or permanent traffic regulation solutions. 

Furthermore, it has already proven its worth for the installation and enhancement of cycle path systems in a diverse number of locations, including New York and Amsterdam. Also the southern Hessian metropolis of Frankfurt relies on products from northern Hesse to ensure a safer traffic environment in its inner city. 

Features & functions

Physical separation for more safety 

In combination with the Leitboys, horizont Guide Curb ensures a physical separation from the roadway respectively traffic and creates enough free space for a safe ride for the cycle path users.
Even the youngest cyclists feel safe behind the Guide Curb. 

 

Optical separation for more attention

The optical separation of roadway and cycle path is enhanced by the Leitboys which come in signal colour. The height of the Leitboys ensures that car drivers intuitively keep more distance thus increasing the cyclists' feeling of safety.

 

More traffic safety due to patented climbing edge 

horizont Guide Curbs are equipped with a patented lateral climbing edge: in case a car accidentally touches the Guide Curb, the climbing edge will guide the vehicle back onto the road thus minimalizing the risk of accidents. 

 

Stable position without fixation to the ground

horizont Guide Curb can easily be installed with only a small team. In contrary to other systems, our Guide Curb does not require any bolting or gluing to the ground however remains sitting absolutely firmly on the ground, even when overrun by a vehicle thanks to its anti-slip elements.

No obstruction in emergency cases due to traversability

Can be run over if necessary: the Leitboys are flexible and can be run over by rescue or other vehicles in emergency cases. This way, the flowing traffic is not obstructed while the "mini delineators" additionally contribute to securing the operation site.

Individual customization to your specific application concept

horizont Guide Curb can be equipped with different Leitboy versions (so called “Mini-delineators”) and can be easily adapted to the prevailing traffic situation. The system can be customized even further by means of different sheeting applied to the Leitboys. We are looking forward to providing you with further information personally.

 

Platz für Fahrradfahrer: "Pop-Up-Bike-Lane" aus Korbach schafft Sicherheit

Gerade in der Corona-Zeit meiden viele Menschen öffentliche Verkehrsmittel und steigen auf das Fahrrad um. Die Firma horizont aus Korbach hat diesen Trend für ihre Geschäftsidee genutzt: Sie haben Leitschwellen für Fahrradwege entwickelt. Wie die "Pop-Up-Bike-Lane" aussieht, zeigen Ihnen Anna Pauly und Pascal Wede in diesem Video.

Fahrradfahren ist in der Stadt immer eine Herausforderung. Denn einige Autofahrer halten sich nicht wirklich an die 1,50 Meter Mindestabstand. Die Pop-Up-Bike-Lane der Firma „horizont“ aus Korbach soll da Abhilfe schaffen: Die Konstruktion trennt die Straße ganz klar von dem Fahrradweg ab und kann schnell und flexibel verlegt werden, da sie nicht mit dem Boden verschraubt ist. Durch ihr Material aus Kabelresten ist sie zudem auch noch nachhaltig produziert, wie Vertriebsleiter Florian Schmoll unser Reporterin verraten hat. (Quelle: RTL Hessen, 25.08.2020)

The individual elements of the Guide curb, available in yellow or white, are interconnected by an extremely sturdy metal hook. The anti-skid system (ARS) on the underside of the Guide curb provides excellent surface adhesion on the road. horizont Guide curbs neither need to be glued nor screwed to the road. The lateral guide rails - climbing edges - ensure that the seperator is firmly pressed to the ground by the weight of the vehicle passing or running over it. Our Guide curbs can be equipped with Leitboys or markers of different sizes and design, as well as with Leitboy bollards.

Leitboy III without handle

Leitboy III without handle

In combination with our Guide curb Leitboy III is approved for use on motorways by German BASt. The Leitboy is sturdily mounted by means of 2 guide slots and latching studs located in the insertion device of the Guide curb. Even if being hit or run over by a vehicle it will bounce back into its original position (see BASt test report). By this means the warning- and traffic guidance effec always remain active. Of course the Leitboy III comes with a recessed sheeting area which means damages of the sheeting are reduced to a minimum. The plane sheeting surface achieves best reflection values. Sheeting size 50% of a standard delineator.
