Absorb 350 Crash Cushions

ABSORB 350

impact attenuator
for narrow areas

The ABSORBS 350 end terminal is an impact attenuator ideally suited for narrow areas in work zones where road and workspace is limited.

ABSORBS 350 is designed to shield the end of temporary barrier systems such as our Ironman Hybrid Barrier and our T-Lok PCB Barrier.

This end terminal has an Austroads Safety Barrier Assessment Panel (ASBAP) approval to 70km/h.

Absorbs are considered to be gating and non-redirective so site specific risk assessments are usually advised and length of need and barrier overrun becomes critical in your calculations.

These units are freestanding and very quickly deployed and installed.

There are many advantages to the system, including:

  • Easily replaced after impact
  • Easy to remove and relocate or shift barriers for multi staged projects
  • Durable
  • Fast deployment and retrieval
  • No anchoring required
  • Maintenance free
  • Water filled
  • No machine required to install

Ironman Hybrid Barrier Installation

Negri – Canterbury Road (Heathmont)

Road Safety Rental have recently deployed a 200m Ironman Hybrid temporary barrier system, using the ABSORB 350 end treatment. This road safety solution was installed on Canterbury Rd to ensure the safety of the Negri team as they work on the construction of a new turning lane. The additional 200m turning lane will significantly ease traffic congestion in the Heathmont area, especially in the morning peak hour. We are glad to have been able to do our bit once again and provide a safe worksite for the entire construction team from Negri on this project.

MACA Infrastructure - Buninyong

A complex project involving significant road improvements to the Midland Hwy between Meredith and Buninyong was recently awarded to MACA Infrastructure. The works comprised of the installation of safety barrier in high-risk areas, the addition of an overtaking lane in each direction, the installation of audio tactile rumble strips to alert drivers if their vehicle becomes off-course, significant widening of pavement, sealing of the shoulders of the road, improvements to the intersection of Midland Highway and Clarendon-Lal Lal Road by constructing turning lanes, traffic islands and adding extra signage, and, making minor improvements to other intersections. Road Safety Rental were proud to be working alongside the principal contractor to provide all the temporary barrier protection for MACA, their teams and subcontractors while these important works are carried out.
