The MASH compliant MAX-Tension Test Level 3 tangent end terminal with Sabretooth technology features the next level of impact performance in an ultra-slim design. Max-Tension is a re-directive, gating tensioned-based end terminal for W-Beam barrier systems in tangent configurations. The system has a tension-based design along with an energy absorbing coupler that utilizes an innovative cutting-tooth technology. When impacted head-on, deceleration is controlled by friction in the tension cables and by cutting the downstream guide rail panels. When a side impact occurs, tension cables can help safely redirect a motorist away from the hazard.
The MAX-Tension median terminal is MASH compliant and technologically advanced. Max-Tension is a re-directive, gating tensioned-based end terminal for W-Beam barrier systems in median configurations. The system utilizes the MAX-Tension family tension and energy absorbing coupler fitted with a patent-pending galvanized Sabretooth to help cut the downstream guide rail and aid in the deceleration of an errant vehicle when impacted.
