Safe Direction’s CyclopsShield® safe culvert end has been developed to address the long-standing safety problem of roadside culvert end impacts.
A vehicle entering a roadside ditch will encounter parallel drainage culverts under crossroads or driveways. The general effect following an unprotected culvert end snag will be a high severity impact on the culvert end, often followed by the catastrophic flipping of the vehicle.
Crash impact severity is significantly reduced through creating a deformable culvert safety end that provides a traversable surface and eliminates vehicle snagging hazards. A vehicle impact at speeds up to 100 km/h with the CyclopsShield® safe culvert end can override the culvert, saving the occupants from what would otherwise likely be a fatal incident.
