VRS - P4 Double Sided Terminal - X-TENSION 110 Double

The X-TENSION 110 Double-sided P4 Terminal provides a safe termination for barriers as an alternative to conventional double ramped end terminals which can potentially launch errant vehicles into the obstruction being shielded or into an adjacent carriageway.  Its overall length and low displacement make it particularly suitable for restricted sites.

The X-TENSION 110 Double-sided P4 Terminal is fully tested to EN1317- 4 and is approved for use on Highways England roads. Under test the system proved its capability to redirect a 1500kg vehicle, when impacts from both sides occurred, safely redirecting the vehicle at a shallow exit angle and also absorbing the energy from a 1500kg vehicle impacting head on.  When impacted, the system engages with the impacting vehicle, favourably influencing deceleration and direction of the errant vehicle, bringing it to a safe halt.

Xtension 110 P4 Double Sided Terminal   The X-TENSION 110 Double-sided P4 Terminal is a tension based system that is simple and robust. The impacting vehicle pushes against the impact head smoothly transferring the energy into longitudinal cables which are located behind the system beams.  The resistance between the impact head and the cable dissipates the energy during the rearward motion and brings the vehicle to a progressive, controlled halt

The X-TENSION 110 Double-sided P4 Terminal is the ONLY APPROVED double-sided P4 system available and offers many advantages to contractors and installers
