The SKT-SP guardrail end terminal is an energy-absorbing, tangent end terminal, designed to minimise the severity of impacts occurring at the end of the safety barrier system.
Designed for attachment directly to w-beam guardrail, the SKT-SP is one of the world?s leading end treatment solutions and is fully compliant to the requirements of NCHRP Report 350.
During head-on impacts, the SKT-SP impact head slides over the w-beam guardrail. The w-beam is sequentially kinked as it moves through the head and exits away from the traffic face. The kinking action of the rail absorbs the kinetic energy of the impacting vehicle bringing the vehicle to a controlled stop.
