The intent of a temporary impact attenuator is to protect the motoring public when striking a hazard while traveling through a work zone. Temporary impact attenuators are designed to absorb the colliding vehicle's kinetic energy when hit. In addition to absorbing the kinetic energy, some temporary impact crash attenuator models can also be used as a redirective non-gating end treatment thus, saving more lives. Some temporary impact attenuators are anchored to the hazard, like concrete barrier. Temporary impact attenuators are required to be installed on a level concrete or asphalt pad. Rocky Mountain Signing can supply, deliver, install and repair your temporary impact attenuators.
