Race Track Challenges

ProLink Barriers

Race tracks present an extremely complex safety challenge. They need a barrier system that minimizes damage to drivers and vehicles moving at high speeds, but is also affordable to install and quick to repair, so events are not unduly delayed. Tracks also need a barrier system that is strong enough to withstand hard hits, but malleable enough to give, move and dissipate g-force energy to mitigate impact. Ideally, the barrier system should be able to conform to any track design, while also offering color-coordinated branding and the option to display advertising banners or directional signage. Tough criteria, but a solution does exist.


ISS PROLINK BARRIERS - A Better Safety Barrier Solution.

Impact Safety Systems (ISS) ProLink Barriers were developed based on the same energy absorbing FEA approved technology as its KISS barriers. In-depth safety testing and collision-impact research was conducted to establish the original barrier design dynamics, determine thickness of material and strongest surface type. Since applying this approach to ProLink Barriers, the system’s ability to dissipate impact forces has been tested and proven time and again in live scenarios at racetracks and motorcycle test tracks around the globe.

Perhaps the most valuable proof of performance any barrier manufacturer can offer is customer satisfaction.
To date, every ProLink track customer has reported high-speed hits resulting in minimal barrier deformation, very little damage to vehicles and, uppermost, drivers walked away unharmed.

ProLink Barriers

  • ProLink Safety Barriers are designed to yield on impact, progressively retarding vehicle speed and cushioning the shock so there’s less likelihood of blunt force trauma to drivers or major damage to vehicles
  • On severe impacts, the cumulative pull of the connected barriers creates a “snaking effect,” collectively causing deceleration. When buffering, ProLink keeps drivers from reaching a permanent hard wall
  • ProLink’s unique linking system holds the barriers in place when struck and keeps them from scattering, which minimizes hazardous debris
  • Anchoring pins provide additional stabilization that reduces bounce-backs into traffic, lowering multi-vehicle collisions
  • ProLink is the only barrier systems that offers ballast modification for varying levels of resistance. Ballast can be adjusted based on impact load, speed and weight of vehicles at different locations on a track when intermittent barriers are filled with sand or water
  • Exclusive ballast system also increases stability and makes vehicles less likely to submarine beneath the barriers
  • ProLink Safety Barriers are engineered to soften angular hits, as well as frontal/head-on, and should be considered the first line of defense as a buffer before permanent barricade walls
  • ProLink Barriers balance elasticity and durability so impact is absorbed and dissipated throughout the connected barriers with very little wall deformation, cracking, breaking or shattering
  • ProLink Barriers offer bright colors and directional signage options, which help raise visibility in key areas, further increasing protection
  • Because ProLink is the only Barrier Systems that’s versatile enough to be used in any configuration, it provides total protection for drivers everywhere on a track, including filling coverage gaps where other barricades can’t


Why ISS ProLink Safety Barriers are so adaptable with less labor.

KISS Barriers

  • ProLink is the only barrier system that can be arranged in literally any configuration, including curves and 90-degree angles, or either direction of travel for maximum flexibility of use
  • Extremely lightweight with plug-and-play connections, ISS ProLink is the easiest system to assemble or remove—One thousand linear feet or 250 ProLink Barriers can be deployed by 2 workers in only one day, which saves time and money
  • If a barrier replacement is ever required, it takes just 1 worker less than 10 minutes to do the job, resulting in faster crash clean-up and reduced race delays
  • ProLink Safety Barriers are conveniently stackable to almost any height for efficient storage or transport, and are designed to accommodate a fork-lift if needed

Why ISS ProLink Safety Barriers last longer.

  • ProLink Safety Barriers are rotationally molded from UV stabilized, weather-resistant composite polyethylene plastic with advanced ribbed wall construction
  • Made from stronger, thicker composite plastic (in some cases twice as thick as competitors), ProLink Barriers stand up to repeated high speed hits
  • ProLink’s exclusive impact ridges are designed to increase structural integrity and make the barriers less vulnerable to deformation, scuffing or marking
  • ProLink Safety Barriers have a proven track record of durability with no warping, bowing, cracking, breaking or shattering
  • The tongue and groove connections are secured with a unique anchoring pin to ensure a flush fit. If pins are damaged during severe impact, they are easily replaced at minimal cost
  • When intermittent blocks are filled to 25% with water, ProLink Barriers weigh approximately 500 pounds each making them virtually indestructible
  • The best proof of durability is the low number of broken barrier replacements ordered by ISS customers, which translates to lower replacement costs for tracks. For example, The University of Houston Law Enforcement Driver’s Training Facility has used ISS Barriers for over 5 years without any replacements to date


Why ISS ProLink Safety Barriers make financial sense.

  • ProLink Safety Barriers are the lowest cost system available today—Only about $70 per linear foot including installation and water
  • ProLink Barriers can raise track safety ratings, which may lower insurance premiums
  • ProLink Barriers are completely portable, easy to transport, fast to install, and simple to store, which saves time and labor
  • ProLink Barriers are tough enough to last from event to event, substantially reducing replacement costs
  • ProLink Safety Barriers are specifically designed to support advertising and sponsorship banners, which generates additional income
  • ProLink Safety Barriers can be customized with graphics, embedded logos, and come in a full range of color combinations to coordinate with track branding. Tracks appear cleaner, more up-to-date and attractive on camera

We had a member hit a barrier while he was driving the track in his Porsche. To everyone's pleasure, the extra layer of safety kept damage to a minimum.
