Sistemas Palazón demonstrates sliding safety device

Reducing damage to vehicles and their passengers in impacts with street furniture is the object of a new type of mounting being shown by Spanish company Sistemas Palazón.

Despite the huge sums of money spent by car manufacturers on improving the safety of their vehicles, severe damage can still be caused if they hit unyielding objects.

Sistemas Palazón’s new product consists of a steel base and column. Its novelty comes in the two-part design of the base. A flat mounting plate anchors the column to the road or pavement, but the upper section of the base is designed to slide in the direction of an impact and eventually tip over. This reduces the impact force, minimising both damage to the vehicle and its occupants.

The sliding section will operate at impact angles of up to 45 degrees from a straight-on collision. It can be re-used following an accident.
The new system can be used for streetlights, signposts or other types of urban equipment.
