Introducing Ezy-Guard Low Deflection System (LDS), the next generation in the Ezy-Guard family of steel guardrail barriers. The Ezy-Guard family has solutions for the MASH TL2, TL3 and TL4 containment levels.
Ezy-Guard LDS is crash tested to the Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH) and AS/NZS 3845.1:2015. MASH TL4 is a 58% increase in impact energy when compared to the old NCHRP-350 TL4.
The MASH TL4 crash test matrix requires the following impacts;
• 1,100kg car travelling at 100km/h and 25 degrees.
• 2,270kg pick-up travelling at 100km/h and 25 degrees.
• 10,000kg truck travelling at 90km/h and 15 degrees.
The system has a MASH TL3 and TL4 deflection of 1.1m.
The Z-post profile shields post edges from vulnerable road users and provides sectional strength when driving through difficult conditions.
Offering a greatly reduced footprint of 245mm, compared to the 585mm of Modified Thrie-Beam, the system offers great flexibility to road designers.
An Ezy-LDS-Carriage is used to secure the Thrie-beam rails to the posts, eliminating the requirement for blocking/offset pieces and rail stiffening plates. This unique connection provides a soft ride-down for the occupants and smooth vehicle containment and redirection.
HIGHER PERFORMANCE – LIGHTER – FEWER PARTS
RAPID INSTALLATION – NARROW WIDTH – CONSIDERATION FOR MOTORCYCLISTS
