The FLEAT-SP guardrail end terminal is a flared, energy-absorbing end terminal, designed to minimise the severity of impacts occurring at the end of the safety barrier system. Designed for attachment directly to w-beam guardrail, the FLEAT-SP is one of the world’s leading end treatment solutions and is fully compliant to the requirements of NCHRP Report 350.
The FLEAT-SP is available in two configurations. The compact 7.62m TL2 terminal is an economical solution where the posted speed is less than or equal to 70km/h. The standard 11.43m TL3 terminal is acceptable for all posted speeds greater than 70km/h.
The straight flare design feature allows the TL3 FLEAT-SP to be installed at a variable offset from 760mm to 1220mm. The offset of TL2 FLEAT-SP is between 510mm and 810mm. The use of a straight flare reduces the potential for head-on impacts.
