** Before design or installation, please check the current acceptance conditions for the MELT by the road controlling authority. Many Australian jurisdictions have moved the MELT to Legacy status, meaning no new installations. **
The Modified Eccentric Loader Terminal (MELT) is designed to provide a soft gating impact to prevent the end rail from spearing an impacting vehicle. The MELT terminal is installed on a parabolic offset with rails not bolted to posts to minimise the potential for vehicle penetration.
The MELT also introduces tensile and flexural strength necessary to ensure redirection performance of the length-of-need section.
