Truck-mounted attenuators or TMAs present one of the most effective measures for impact protection in highway and non-highway work zones. An impact attenuator essentially works as a cushion and is usually installed on a carefully placed truck. A TMA absorbs the kinetic energy generated by colliding vehicles and helps protect roadside workers, passing motorists, and expensive machinery. At Curry Supply, we can provide you with highly reliable TMA trucks for sale in Houston and the area.
These trucks are typically placed in front of toll gates, concrete barriers, bridge parapets, guardrails, and similar roadside structures.
When determining the proper placement of a crash attenuator truck, several factors need to be considered:
In general, TMA trucks should be used in both non-freeway and freeway work zones to keep workers and equipment workers safe. The Metro TMA truck, in particular, is well suited for use on urban roads with lower vehicle speeds (50mph and lower). The placement of these vehicles should be in accordance with specific highway agency recommendations in Houston as well as the guidelines offered by the truck manufacturer.
Metro TMA trucks are typically parked at a roadside work zone to create a buffer zone between oncoming vehicles and the workers. When mounted on a truck, a crash attenuator can significantly reduce damage to vehicles, machinery, drivers, and workers in the urban work zone. Other features of truck-mounted attenuators that help maximize roadside safety include specialized LED lights and high-visibility man baskets.
The Scorpion crash attenuator truck we offer for sale at Curry Supply is carefully designed to absorb impact and reduce its force. MASH-tested and compliant with state and federal regulations, these vehicles rely on modular, compact design to respond to vehicle crashes in several stages. On top of that, the Metro TMA truck also relies on sturdy and rugged construction parts, which ensures reliability and durability.
The Metro TMA trucks we offer at Curry Supply have been designed, engineered, and manufactured to maximize impact control. To do this, they rely on the following features and characteristics:
