Road impact attenuators, also known as crash attenuators, are a road safety element that is essential on the roads.
This device is made up of a deformable structure that, at the moment of the impact of the vehicle against it, breaks the car and is collected. This allows it to absorb the crash to considerably reduce both the number of victims, injuries and damages.
It is estimated that they can prevent up to 80% of deaths due to collision with obstacles protected by this mechanism. Therefore, they are a key element in making vehicular circulation routes a safer place for users.
