QuadGuard Elite System offers the added value of reusable cylinders
for applications with above average impact frequency. The system
meets NCHRP 350, Test Levels 2 and 3 as a redirective, nongating
The QuadGuard Elite System’s cylinders are made of high density
polyethylene plastic (HDPE), a material that can with-stand multiple
impacts before requiring replacement. After a typical design impact,
the system is 99% to 100% reusable.
A member of the QuadGuard Family, the QuadGuard Elite System utilizes
many of the same components as the familiar QuadGuard System.
Non-gating, redirective crash cushion system
- Performs effectively with both light cars and high center-of-
gravity pickup trucks
- Meets TL-2 (70 km/h / 43 mph) and TL-3 (100 km/h / 62 mph)
- Angles up to 20°
During head-on impacts, the QuadGuard® Elite crash cushion
system telescopes rearward, crushing the reusable cylinders to absorb
the energy of impact.
When impacted from the side, QuadGuard® Elite redirects the
errant vehicle back toward its original travel path without allowing
Reusable cylinders provide one of the lowest lifecycle costs of
Quad-Beam panels provide 30% higher beam strength than thrie
beam. Quad-Beam panels also protect the reusable cylinders
and reduce rebound velocity.
Monorail base eliminates the need for chains and cables providing
excellent redirective capability.
Flex-Belt Nose is reusable after most impacts.
Protects Wide Range Hazards
Hazards from 610 mm (24 in.) to 2.3 m (90 in.) can be effectively
shielded. Available in 610 mm (24 in.), 750 mm (30 in.), 910 mm
(36 in.), 1.75 m (69 in.) and 2.3 m (90 in.) widths.
Self-Restoring Crash Cushion System
QuadGuard® Elite will self-restore after many, but not all,
