Smith Fence has the experience and technology required to install your SAFER barrier on temporary and permanent barriers. We can also install them on freestanding systems without using concrete walls or Tri ARMCO for support.
A car traveling over 180 mph has roughly the same kinetic as stored two pounds of T.N.T. When it comes to a stop, all that energy must go somewhere. The resultant energy decapitates through five ways, skidding, light and sound, spinning, or deformation. Every driver wants to get off this energy any other way but not through their bodies.
While the mattress is a good material for absorbing such energy, it won’t make any difference for a speeding stock car. So, it would help if you had something soft but much stiffer, and that is where SAFER barriers come in. They use the energy from the crushing car to deform the barrier and distribute the impact over a more extended time, directing the energy away from drivers and passengers.
