RAPTOR™ is a MASH TL-1 compliant, bi-directional crash cushion, designed to reduce the consequences of vehicle collisions with utility poles, trees or other single point hazards.
Around 30% of run-off-road fatalities worldwide involve severe impacts with hard objects such as poles and trees. The cost of removing these hazards can be prohibitive, because it may involve revising the road layout, so often no action is taken until an incident happens.
RAPTOR™ significantly reduces the severity of vehicle impacts, while offering exceptional vehicle control. It meets MASH 350 TL-1 (2,270kg pickup, 50kph head-on) criteria for non-redirective crash cushions, providing cost effective protection for single point hazards and preventing the risk of debris scattering during an impact.
Designed for ease and speed of installation, with no foundation or securing required, the robust, U/V stabilized RAPTOR™ unit requires minimal maintenance. It is a cost-effective way to reduce the risk of injuries to vehicle occupants in the event of an impact. Hazards such as utility poles or trees offer no energy absorption during a head-on impact, which means that a vehicle and its occupants absorb all the impact energy released from a vehicle when it instantly decelerates to a halt during a collision. For further safety protection, RAPTOR™’s smooth surface and geometry means that there is no risk of injury for pedestrians or cyclists either.
