Trailing End Terminals

Flexrail End Treatment (Departure End)

A Trailing End Terminal as the name suggests, should only be used on the trailing end of the Flexrail. The purpose of the Trailing Terminal is to anchor the end of the Flexrail to keep the tensile strength in the Flexrail. A Trailing End Terminal has shown to be the most effective, low cost termination for Flexrail.

The Trailing End Terminal comes in two versions, Straight or Curved.

Curved Trailing End Terminal (CTT) (PDF 132 KB)

  • The CTT should be used where there is a chance that it may be hit in a head-on  situation ie.an undivided road. In this case the curved rail provides some protection in  a head-on situation, acting in the same manner as the traditional Breakaway Cable  Terminal (BCT).
  • CSP Pacific recommends the use of a Bullnose on the CTT, however, it may also be  used with a Rolled End Fitting. We do not recommend the use of a Fishtail where  there is a chance it could be hit in a head-on situation.
  • CSP Pacific always recommends an X-350 as the only truly safe Flexrail  leading termination.

Straight Trailing End Terminal (STT) (PDF 129 KB)

  • For use as a trailing terminal on divided roads only where there is no chance of the end being hit in a head on situation eg. motorways and expressways. The purpose of the STT in this situation is to anchor the end of the Flexrail.
  • CSP Pacific recommends the use of a Bullnose on the CTT, however, it may also be used with a Rolled End Fitting. We do not recommend the use of a Fishtail where there is a chance it could be hit in a head-on situation.
  • For use also where there is no room on the road edge to offset using a CTT.

The Trailing End Terminal offers specifiers, installers and users all of these advantages -

Quick and easy to install

  • No extra tools required
  • Standard post spacing (1905mm) means quicker set-up time
  • 5mm gauge steel soil tube which is less prone to damage during installation or after a vehicle impact

Specifications

  Length: 3.81
  Offset: (On the CTT only) 0 to 335mm
  Post Spacing: 1905mm

Standards and Acceptance

Both Trailing End Terminals meet AS/NZS3845:1999, and TNZ M23 when used in a trailing situation on state highways. The CTT used in a leading situation does not comply with any current  NZ Transport Agency standards and can only be used in special cases for low volume, low speed local authority or private roads.
