TAU Crash Cushion
The TAU ‘family system’ of static roadside crash cushions are fully tested to BS EN 1317-3 and approved by the Highways Agency for use on the UK trunk road network, and the NRA for use on roads in the Republic of Ireland. TAU crash cushions are redirective & bi-directional with Redirection Zone Class Z1 and Lateral Displacement Zone Class D1, providing high performance, high re-usability and speedy repair after impact. Modular construction minimises costs and decreases installation and repair times and hence exposure of operatives. Installation requires a simple concrete pad cast in-situ or in certain circumstances the system can be installed directly to the carriageway surface.
TAU systems are particularly resistant to side redirective impact damage and have low life cycle costs in comparison with alternative similar products, thus offering high overall performance at competitive prices. TAU systems are available in Velocity Classes 60, 80, 100, and 110km/h. The 60, 80, and 100km/h systems are available in three widths protecting hazards of 700mm, 2350mm and 2900mm. The 110km/h system is available in two widths protecting hazards of 700mm and 2400mm.
