SST® TRAILER TMA TRUCK MOUNTED ATTENUATOR
The SST TMA is an innovative new concept that is changing how TMAs
are used around the world. Speedy attachment mechanisms and heavy
duty axle/wheels instead of typical TMA mounting hardware make the
SST TMA the best value available today. The proven industry leading
Safe-Stop TMA is designed as a trailer giving highway authorities
the ability to rapidly deploy and maximize truck fleet utilization,
thus lowering overall TMA operating costs. Special anti-rotational
dampeners help ensure the SST TMA maintains optimal impact position
to help protect impacting vehicles, at the same time protecting
the host vehicle. The SST TMA also incorporates nuisance impact
protection and has over 50% reusability after design impacts. This
means the SST TMA will be back in service quicker with lower maintenance
costs. Like all Safe-Stop TMAs, the SST TMA meets all standard and
optional NCHRP 350 TL-3 test requirements to provide optimum protection
to drivers, equipment, and the public.
- Meets NCHRP 350 TL-3 criteria for standard and optional tests
at 100 km/h (62 mph) for design impacts.
Installation and removal of the SST TMA takes only minutes. The
system installs on a standard Minimum 8 ton pintle hook.
The SST TMA features antirotational dampeners that are designed
to lock the TMA in place during an angled impact to minimize the
TMA from rotating into into adjacent traffic lanes. The anti-rotational
dampeners do not affect driveability of the host vehicle.
Fast and Easy Refurbishment
a typical design impact, the steel support frame and strike plate
are reusable, and only the two aluminum Safe-Stop cartridges need
to be replaced.
