QUADGUARD® HS CRASH CUSHION SYSTEM

The QuadGuard HS System has raised the bar in high-speed crash cushion performance by passing the NCHRP 350, TL-3 test matrix for redirective, non-gating crash cushions at the demanding design speed of 113 km/h (70 mph). The system features revolutionary space-frame diaphragms that allow it to provide high-speed impact protection for a wide range of vehicles, from small cars to highcenter-of-gravity pickup trucks.
The QuadGuard HS System is the only crash cushion in the world tested to satisfy the stringent FHWA requirements based on NCHRP 350 criteria. During head-on impacts at speeds up to 113 km/h (70 mph), the QuadGuard HS System telescopes, effectively dissipating the energy of both light cars and high-center-of-gravity pickup trucks. During impacts at angles up to 20 degrees, the system
redirects the impacting vehicle back into its original travel path.
