Different types of end terminals
The TREND-350 is a guardrail end-terminal designed to absorb the kinetic energy of an impacting vehicle on the end of a road safety barrier. Upon frontal impacts, the TREND™ 350 absorbs energy by creating friction between the guardrail panels and deformation of the rail section. During design side impacts, the yielding posts laterally support the rail sections, smoothly redirecting the impacting vehicle for greater safety.
The TREND-350 is fully compliant to NCHRP-350 Test Level 3. The system is 11.4m long and is suitable for speeds up to 100km/h.
The ET2000 End Terminal is engineered to absorb the kinetic energy of an impacting vehicle on a road safety barrier. This is accomplished by flattening the guardrail. The terminal is designed to reduce the problems associated with impacting vehicles, such as spearing, vaulting and rollover. The ET is customisable to suit the application with two sizes available.
The unique X350 end terminal technology is a tension based solution. It offers greater vehicle control and energy absorbing capabilities in head on impacts, where the energy is absorbed at the impact head rather than being transferred down the rail. The X350 is designed to be a resistant when compared to others, absorbing the impact rather than being transferred down the rail.
The SKT 350 (Sequential Kinking Terminal) is an energy absorbing tangent terminal. During vehicle impact the rail is sequentially kinked as it moves through the head and curls away from the road way. Side impacts result in safe redirection of the errant vehicle.
The Modified Eccentric Loader Terminal (MELT) is a gating guardrail end terminal designed to prevent spearing from a travelling vehicle. The MELT is installed with the rails offset and supported on angle (shelf) brackets to minimise potential vehicle penetration.
Driveway guardrail barriers provide heavy duty protection and are best suitable for setting safe perimeters in commercial and industrial applications. Wrapped guardrail barriers can be used for driveways where dangerous vehicles may enter and exit or heavy equipment traffic work zones for example at warehouses or factories, dealerships to enhance car and pedestrian safety between walkways and moving vehicles.
Our energy absorbing end terminal bollards are engineered to protect motorists and assets in the event of a collision. They are non-gating and non-re-directive meaning a vehicles impact is ‘captured’ and kept away from assets and other vehicles, minimising potential injuries, road hazards and damage. Most commonly, Terminal Bollards are engineered to protect motorcycles, especially in tight spaces – designed for areas within 60km and under.
