This European Standard specifies requirements for evaluation of conformity of the following vehicle restraint systems:
a) safety barriers;
b) crash cushions;
c) terminals (will be effective when ENV 1317-4 becomes an EN);
d) transitions (will be effective when ENV 1317-4 becomes an EN);
e) vehicle / pedestrian parapets (only for the vehicle restraint function).
Pedestrian parapet requirements are not covered in this document.
Requirements for the evaluation of durability with respect to weathering are included in this document.
Requirements for other forms of durability (e.g. marine environment, sand abrasion) are not included.
Temporary barriers are not within the scope of this document.

Amendment 2:
This normative Annex includes a classification of safety barriers for the resistance to snow removal. It includes the horizontal and vertical pressure of ploughed snow against the rail and minor impacts caused the plough in the front and upper edge of the rail. A simplified evaluation method is intended for normal steel beam barriers, rope fences and monolithic concrete barriers. A test is possible for other barrier types. The specifying authority shall decide if classification is required.
This annex shall not be used for crash cushions, terminals and transitions.
