Crash Cushions

Crash Cushions

Crash Cushions are generally used for median road asset protection. They are designed to absorb energy from end impacts and minimise harm to occupants of impacting vehicles. These are typically found on approach ends of rigid barrier systems and occasionally around bridge piers.

The most common types of roadside crash cushions utilised within the Western Australian landscape are:

  • TAU II Crash Cushion
  • Quadguard system
  • TRACC system

These Crash Cushion products have been tested to meet the rigorous Test Level requirements of NCHRP 350 that most road authorities have adopted in their barrier specifications around Australia.

Safety Barriers WA have installed all types of Crash Cushions and were the first to install the Bullnose Attenuator (also called the ‘Minnesota Bullnose’) in Western Australia on what is now known as Mandjoogoordap Drive. So why compromise on safety? Insist on Safety Barriers WA for your next project.
