quadguard-elite-3The QuadGuard Elite System offers the added value of reusable cylinders for applications with above average impact frequency. The system meets NCHRP 350, Test Levels 2 and 3 as a redirective, nongating crash cushion.\r\nThe QuadGuard Elite System’s cylinders are made of high density polyethylene plastic (HDPE), a material that can with-stand multiple impacts before requiring replacement. After a typical design impact, the system is 99% to 100% reusable.\r\nA member of the QuadGuard Family, the QuadGuard Elite System utilizes many of the same components as the familiar QuadGuard System.

Head-On Impacts

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

Redirective Capability

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


Reusable Cylinders

\r\n\r\nReusable cylinders provide one of the lowest lifecycle costs of any attenuator.\r\n\r\n

Quad-Beam™ Panels

\r\n\r\nQuad-Beam™ panels provide 30% higher beam strength than thrie beam. Quad-Beam™ panels also protect the reusable cylinders and reduce rebound velocity.\r\n\r\n

Monorail Base

\r\n\r\nMonorail base eliminates the need for chains and cables providing excellent redirective capability.\r\n\r\n

Flex-Belt Nose

\r\n\r\nFlex-Belt Nose is reusable after most impacts.\r\n\r\n

Protects Wide Range Hazards

\r\n\r\nHazards 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.\r\n\r\n


Self-Restoring Crash Cushion System

QuadGuard® Elite will self-restore after many, but not all, design impacts.\r\n\r\n
