The WIDETRACC Crash Attenuation Cushion is a fully redirective, non-gating, bi-directional energy absorbing crash cushion designed to protect motorists from impacting the end of concrete barriers, toll plazas, bridge piers and other rigid hazards in both permanent and temporary work zone locations. The WIDETRACC offers designers options in protecting motorists from wide median hazards, and for gore areas where barriers need crashworthy end treatments. The WIDETRACC can be flared down its left side only, its right side only, or both sides simultaneously.
The WIDETRACC system meets the requirements of NCHRP 350 Test Level 3 and is acceptable for all posted speeds.
The WIDETRACC is pre-assembled to facilitate rapid installation, thereby minimising disruption to traffic flow. The WIDETRACC is not a disposable system. Upon impact a replacement unit is sent to site for changeover. Complete replacement protects workers by limiting their exposure to traffic. Damaged units are repaired at the local Ingal workshop and the customer is invoiced for the costs associated with the costs of repairs only.
