Fits a wide range of applications:
The FLEAT combines the superior performance of the energy-absorbing tangent terminals with the advantage of flared terminals in reducing nuisance impacts. During head-on impacts, the FLEAT head slides over the W-beam guardrail. The rail is sequentially kinked or bent as it moves through the head. The kinked guardrail exits the head safely and the vehicle is brought to a controlled stop. When impacted along the side within the length of need, the FLEAT functions like a guardrail. The errant vehicle is safely redirected back toward its original travel path.
