Truck-mounted crash attenuator features an attenuator and an arrow board. The attenuator device is crash-rated up to 65 mph, which meets all federal and state regulations for impact. It consists of strut and cartridge sections that are linked together on a support frame. The curved side rails are made from corrosion-resistant aluminum tubes, which offer full-width impact protection along the entire length of the unit, the company says. The side rails were designed to safely re-direct errant vehicles away from the rear of the truck. Two aluminum boxes are filled with a moisture proof, aluminum honeycomb material. The boxes, together with the curved side rails, absorb the kinetic energy from an impacting vehicle. The aluminum boxes are painted with a bright yellow powder-coated finish, for lasting durability.
The arrow board directs traffic by flashing a brightly lit arrow pattern made up of 15 or 25 amber LEDs and is controlled from the truck cab. From inside the cab, the operator can fold the attenuator and arrow board into two parts when traveling to and from the job site. The crash attenuator and arrow board can be installed on all makes and models of chassis, new or used.
