Quick-Check Tension Meter

Quickly measures tension in cable guardrails, guy lines and overhead wires.


High tension cable barriers designed to contain and redirect errant vehicles from road hazards are quickly becoming the new standard for interstate guardrails and safety barriers with a number of countries.

They are cost efficient and quick to install as well as being very effective but to ensure the highest safety they need to be tensioned correctly in line with the manufacturers specification. This is where the Dillon Quick-Check comes into its own.

Designed especially for this task, the Quick-Check allows fast and accurate readings to be taken, ensuring correct tension is on the line. The Quick-Check saves time and reduces cost for both installation and maintenance teams without compromising on safety.
