Italian firm Snoline says that its Tau Tube redirective crash cushion offers low-cost crash protection. Paula Ferraris, communications & marketing manager for the firm said: “It is like the previous Tau but with a new impact absorbing system. It can stop a car travelling at 110km/h in less than 7m.”
The system is said to be simple to install and is designed for long life, with a galvanised steel structure and meets the European EN1317-3 safety criteria. The impact absorbing beams are made from aluminium and are resistant corrosion, adding to the long wear life performance.
This high performance crash cushion is said to suit installations in narrow spaces such as tunnels. The parts can be interchanged with components from other TAU units, reducing inventory and maintenance costs for the user. The product has been designed for versatility and can be attached to virtually any safety barrier, including double or triple beam guardrail and concrete types.
