Our patent-protected and multi-award-winning Barrier Master® is a special-purpose attachment developed to quickly and safely remove all posts.

From VRS posts to lighting columns, Barrier Master® can remove posts with any foundation. Used by highway contractors nationwide, Barrier Master® represents a leap forward in operator safety. 

  • Operated entirely from the safety of the driver’s cab (or remote control for lorry mounted crane model)
  • Proven to be up to 10 times faster, and safer, than conventional methods

“Barrier Master has proved to be our safest and most cost-effective method of choice for VRS removal. We have timed it removing up to 120 posts per hour on our M27 contract. We will definitely be recommending Barrier Master to our contractors.”

“We were impressed with the Barrier Master on the M1 Jn16-19 project where we were dealing with large quantities of VRS posts in the central reserve. After the initial operator learning curve, the outputs we achieved were very good. The machine was powerful enough to deal with most VRS posts including corroded sockets and long driven posts in well-compacted ground. Two of the benefits from a safety perspective are 1) much less noise than a percussive extractor, and 2) there is no tension or stored energy and so not potential for an uncontrolled release of it.

We are citing our experience on the M1 J16-19 with the Barrier Master when quoting for future work.”

“Safety barrier post removal has been a topic for discussion within the highways industry for many years. The Barrier Master is an industry game changer which overcomes all safety concerns associated with the traditional and well-established industry methods. A-one+ have found the Barrier Master to be faster, more efficient and a more economical method of post-extraction which will undoubtedly benefit the wider industry.”
