Head-On Impacts

During head-on impacts, the QuadGuard® Elite crash cushion system telescopes rearward, crushing the reusable cylinders to absorb the energy of impact.

Redirective Capability

When impacted from the side, QuadGuard® Elite redirects the errant vehicle back toward its original travel path without allowing gating.

Reusable Cylinders

Reusable cylinders provide one of the lowest lifecycle costs of any attenuator.

Quad-Beam™ Panels

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

Monorail base eliminates the need for chains and cables providing excellent redirective capability.

Flex-Belt Nose

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.
