Improved safety levels are claimed for the new end terminal developed by Lindsay. The X-Lite Terminal is said to offer excellent impact performance at an affordable price, as well as ease of installation.
The product has been tested to NCHRP 350 TL-3 requirements and the firm is said to have been engineered for maximum interchangability for either flared or tangential installations. The unit is offered with heights of 710mm or 790mm, measures 11.43m long and features a W-beam design, which telescopes during impact.
It is made from many standard, non-proprietary W-beam guardrail components, which helps reduce the cost and has a non-extruding, fixed head design that is said to offer both safe and consistent performance.
The firm offers the product with a choice of I-Beam steel posts with either wood or composite blockouts, depending on needs of the client and the application. The company has designed the system for versatility and it can be attached to a concrete barrier by using standard transition components. It is suited for use at the side of a road where a recommended clear zone and recoverable slope can be attained.
