VRS - 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 England 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<sup>®</sup> Crash Cushion
TA<sup>®</sup>U Crash Cushion   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. 

New - Tau Tube®

The latest addition to the “family” is the Tau Tube® system that can absorb impacts up to 110 km/h in less than 6 meters. Requiring less space, parts and maintenance, the Tau Tube® System is a cost effective solution suitable for narrow locations as a redirective crash cushion designed to protect hazard points such as highway nosings, toll booths, bridge parapets and similar hazards that can't be removed or relocated. Easily installed, the Tau Tube® crash cushion provides excellent impact performance utilising a superior telescopic design with corrosion resistant energy absorbing aluminium parts.
