Raptor Crash Cushion | GSI Highway Product

RAPTOR

Crash Cushion for Poles and Trees

The RAPTOR System is designed to reduce the severity of errant vehicle impacts with a utility pole or tree. The RAPTOR System uses weather resistant energy absorbing material surrounded by a UV stabilized polyethylene shell to shield poles and trees located on the roadside. It can be installed at many sites that do not have the space needed for a traditional impact attenuator and does not require a foundation. The RAPTOR 300 & 600 Systems meet NCHRP 350 TL-1 criteria as non-redirective impact attenuators.
