The Ingal Motorcyclist Protection Rail (Ingal MPR) is a protective enhancement installed on existing four-wheel vehicle restraint systems to reduce the chances of serious injury to motorcyclists and pillion passengers in run-off road accidents.
Traditional highway safety barriers, installed on road carriageways to restrain vehicles from impacting roadside hazards, typically take the form of the W-Beam rail supported by a series of posts. These posts introduce a significant hazard to an errant motorcyclist in a run-off road accident. The Ingal MPR consists of an under-riding rail which is mounted on a spring bracket. Upon impacting this rail, the spring bracket deflects back absorbing some of the impact energy from the motorcyclist, whilst the rail contains and re-directs the motorcyclist away from the rigid posts and hazards.
