The dangers involved in collisions at 50 km/hr or even slower tend to be underestimated. Research demonstrates that crashing into fixed obstacles at a low speed can also cause serious injury and even death among drivers and passengers. This was the reason to design SMA City, a unique crash cushion to improve traffic safety.
Thanks to their extremely small size (a mere 900 mm in length) these do not detract from the city's beauty but they successfully increase safety by absorbing the impact in a collision with a fixed obstacle such as lamp posts, trees, roundabouts and monuments.
Not only is this solution easy to use, it is also very inexpensive.
The SMA City has been validated at 50 km/hr according to the European standard UNI EN 1317.
The SMA Tree crash cushion has also been designed to reduce the impact in a collision with fixed obstacles such as lamp posts and trees in urban areas. In two-way streets, SMA Tree is the perfect solution to divert vehicles into a sideways collision or offset crash.
Not only is this solution easy to use and adjustable in length it is also very inexpensive.
The SMA Tree has been validated at 50 km/hr according to the European standard UNI EN 1317.
