SLED – Euro-Terminal & SLED Mini
The Sentry Longitudinal Energy Dissipater (SLED) is a narrow, non-redirective gating crash cushion. SLED is designed to shield the end of all permanent and temporary portable barrier shapes including concrete, steel and plastic. SLED’s unique design incorporates four internal steel cables which help envelop the impacting vehicle, reducing the possibility of secondary accidents. The SLED End Treatment does not require foundation anchor bolts to be attached to the road or bridge deck. The complete crash cushion can be installed quickly, with as little as one pick up truck and two workers on compacted dirt, gravel, decomposed granite, asphalt or concrete.
Each SLED module is manufactured from a high visibility yellow polyethylene that is UV stabilized to minimize degradation. It is designed to deform and rupture on impact, absorbing the energy of the errant vehicle. SLED has the most versatile transition for shielding all permanent and temporary portable barriers. The combination of hinging and contouring, allows the transition panels of the SLED End Treatment to be attached to narrow, wide or other profile shapes with either converging, or diverging angles, up to 10 degrees.

The Compressor Attenuator is a re-directive, non-gating, bi-directional, and self-recovering attenuator that has been specifically designed to take repeated impacts without the need for additional recovery procedures, labor, or repairs. It’s the toughest and most cost-effective permanent attenuator on the market. It is designed to increase driver safety, and to cut down repair time and costs, in the event of an impact.
The Compressor was originally accepted for use on the U.S. NHS for one-way traffic applications in FHWA Product Acceptance Letter CC-95 in 2007 and for two-way traffic applications in Acceptance Letter CC-95A in 2009. In both cases, the Compressor was mounted on a reinforced concrete pad using fourteen (14) anchor bolts. The Compressor remained unchanged through both crash tests. Compressor Brochure & Manual
