The new family of QuadGuard crash cushions offers the latest technology
for shielding hazards 610 to 3048 mm (2' to 10'). Each Quadguard
System consists of crushable, energy-absorbing cartridges surrounded
by a framework of Energy’s exclusive steel
Quad-Beam™ panels. These new crash cushions redefine NCHRP
350, Test Level 3 performance for redirective, non-gating attenuators.
The QuadGuard Systems have successfully passed the complete
NCHRP 350, Test Level 3 test matrix with both the light car and
high center-of-gravity pickup truck at speeds up to 100 km/h (62
mph) at angles up to 20°. Higher speed units are available.
During head-on impacts, the QuadGuard Systems telescope rearward
and crush the cartridges to absorb the energy of impact. When impacted
from the side, the QuadGuard Systems safely redirect the errant
vehicle back toward its original travel path without allowing gating.
Non-gating, redirective system
