X-TENuator™ Crash Cushion

The X-TENuator™ is a fully re-directive, non-gating, sacrificial crash cushion for shielding fixed roadside hazards. As part of the X-Tension family of road safety products the X-TENuator uses the same technology and similar components as the X-350 Guardrail End Terminal and provides low cost protection of rigid hazards.

During head on impacts, the system gradually decelerates an errant vehicle. A vehicle impacting on the side beyond the head, will be redirected away from the hazard.
