Barriers that Save More than Lives

Impact Safety Systems (ISS) was founded in 2000 for the express purpose of setting new standards in barrier protection. ISS is dedicated to providing safety barrier systems that are easier to install, faster to repair, 100% flexible and adjustable, ruggedized for better durability, completely customizable, more economical, and – most of all – safer than any other barricade available.

Using the right barrier can be instrumental in preventing concussion and other injuries. Impact Safety Systems is dedicated to evoking changes in safety and advocates for improved driver protection to prevent concussions and casualties.
