Steel guardrail systems are the world’s most widely specified type of safety barrier system and have significantly contributed to improving the safety of our roads.
The use of end terminals is an important characteristic in the function of the guardrail system.
Safe Direction manufacture and distribute a variety of end terminals for guardrail systems, catering to a diverse range of application sites.
The Flared Energy Absorbing Terminal (FLEAT) guardrail end terminal is designed for direct attachment to W-beam guardrail to minimise the severity of impacts occurring at the end of the safety barrier system.
FLEAT End Terminals are the specially designed end pieces located at the leading and trailing end of the guardrail system.
The strength of a steel guardrail system is primarily developed through a combination of the flexural resistance of the rail and the bending resistance of the supporting posts.
The FLEAT is fully compliant with the requirements of NCHRP Report 350 (MASH Test level 2) and is one of the world’s leading end treatment solutions.
