Blunt end culverts are typically installed at the end of a parallel to road V-ditch drain and are also commonly found under access roads and driveways, posing a life endangering roadside hazard for vehicle occupants in run-off road accidents.
The risk of impact with blunt end culverts is often exacerbated by their location which serves to effectively funnel errant vehicles into a traumatic collision.
Safe Direction’s recent launch of CyclopsShield® safe culvert end is considered revolutionary in addressing the long-standing safety problem of roadside culvert end impacts.
The efficacy of CyclopsShield® safe culvert end in lowering the risks to motorists from exposed blunt end culverts has been demonstrated through crash test impacts at 70 KM/H and 100KM/H. In both instances the impact vehicle was found to ride up and over the culvert without snagging.
