Rocky Mountain Signing has a wide variety of temporary and certified professional attenuators for rent in Colorado. Temporary attenuators come in many shapes and sizes including truck-mounted attenuators. They can be mechanical, made of metal, large round barrels filled with sand, and water-filled plastic cartridges. The purpose of a temporary attenuator is to protect the public from the blunt ends of concrete barriers and other roadway hazards, like overhead sign structures. They must also be installed by trained and in most cases certified technicians. Attenuator Truck or traffic attenuator used on public highways must first pass all federal highway specifications. Highway crash attenuators are designed for speeds from 45-MPH to 75-MPH. Rocky Mountain Signing can design/supply and install an attenuator to meet your project needs.
Our attenuators for rent in Colorado have many practical applications. Temporary attenuator barrels can also be found mounted on the back of a truck. These are mobile attenuators. TMA’s are also used to protect highway workers from the motoring public as they set lane closures. All of Rocky Mountain Signing’s Attenuator Truck and Impact Attenuator are mounted on trucks that carry 26,000 lbs. GVW rating. Host trucks with a GVW of 26,000 lbs. will provide both drivers (the TMA driver as well as the driver impacting the TMA) the maximum protection. The TMA (Truck Mounted Attenuator) is designed to move along with a mobile work zone, like a highway stripping or maintenance operation.
