Non Redirective Crash Attenuators
Outdoor Dining Protection
Protects Outdoor Diners, Pedestrians, Assets and Infrastructure.
A patented CARTRIDGE absorbs energy, safely decelerating the vehicle and thus protecting the occupants.
Provides a protective barrier without restricting pedestrian access.
VEHICLE FRONTAL IMPACT INTO NON DEFORMING BARRIER/BOLLARD
Typical frontal impact kinematics of a vehicle involved in a collision with a solid object,
like a Stobie Pole or Non Deforming Bollard the vehicle’s rear axle lifts, while the front axle gets
pushed down due to the inertial forces and position of the centre of gravity of the vehicle.
Due to this rotation the front vehicle passengers get “pushed” towards the steering wheel and the
dashboard, which often results in severe head and neck injuries or fatality.
VEHICLE FRONTAL IMPACT INTO ENERGY ABSORBING BOLLARD (EAB)
The frontal impact kinematics into an energy absorbing bollard EAB is quite different from the
kinematics of the vehicle impacting a solid barrier or another vehicle. The vehicle’s front axle lifts
up following the deformation of the EAB. Due to this rotation the front vehicle passengers get
“lifted” up and get pushed away from the steering wheel and the dashboard.
This will significantly reduce their injuries and risk of fatality.
