Crash / Impact Attenuator

SCI SMART CUSHION®

NCHRP 350 APPROVED

The SCI100GM is a fully redirective, non-gating, bidirectional Impact Attenuator. It was designed for safety and reusability. All required NCHRP 350 tests were performed with the same unit with no required replacement parts. Safety comes first with the SCI100GM as it provides lower average ridedown G forces due to the fact that it is a speed dependent system instead of fixed force. It requires minimal spare parts inventories due to the new side panel design which minimizes damage and snag potential on side impacts. During our testing, it produced very low angles of exit which reduces the potential of the vehicle rebounding back into traffic. Quick resetting due to minimal damage reduces worker exposure, repair part costs and repair labor costs.

Attenuator FeaturesFeatures:

  • Variable force not fixed force
  • Severe Duty Performance
  • Lower average ridedown G forces
  • Low angle of exit on side impacts
  • Reduced snag potential on side impacts
  • Minimal spare parts required
  • Outstanding resetability
Attenuator Feature CABLE AND CYLINDER ARRANGEMENT - allows smaller vehicles longer ridedown distances, is reusable and usually only requires two shear bolts replaced after a frontal impact
Attenuator Attenuator Feature SIDE PANEL DESIGN - reduces crushing and snag potential while smoothly redirecting on side impacts
 
Attenuator Attenuator Feature SUPPORT GUSSETS - reduces gap formation and panel deformation to prevent snagging on side impacts
