QuadGuard® II

The QuadGuard® II is a redirective, non-gating crash cushion that consists of an engineered steel nose and crushable, energy absorbing cartridges surrounded by a framework of steel Quad-Beam™ panels. The system is tested to NCHRP Report 350 Test Level 2 and Test Level 3. The Test Level 2 model is 25% shorter than the original QuadGuard® measuring less than 10’ (3 m). The Test Level 3 model is nearly 3’ (.9 m) shorter in length than its predecessor. The QuadGuard® II can be used to shield fixed objects 24” to 126” wide (610 mm to 3.2 m) while using less than 19’ in length (22’ for the 126”).

Features

  • Self-supporting steel nose, custom cut-out available.
  • Monorail guide shims to stabilize the diaphragms.
  • Footprint is 25% less for TL-2 and 3’ less for TL-3 than the original QuadGuard®.
  • High strength Quad-Beam™ panels.
  • Does not use anchoring chains or tension cables.
  • Compact, modular design tested to speeds from 25 mph (40 km/h) to 62 mph (100 km/h).

 

The QuadGuard® II, as a member of the QuadGuard® family of crash cushions, consists of many of the same components as the QuadGuard.
