The Box-Beam Bursting Energy Absorbing Terminal Single-Sided Crash Cushion (BEAT SSCC) system is designed to protect the ends of concrete barrier. The BEAT SSCC is ideal for restrictive site conditions often found on rural roads, and the short length of 28’ is ideal for constricting site conditions. During a head-on impact, the impact head sheers the box-beam steel and brings the vehicle to a controlled halt. For angle impacts, the vehicle is re-directed back onto the roadway. As a gating system, the BEAT SSCC requires an adequate clear zone.
