The ET2000™ PLUS (Guardrail Extruder Terminal) is engineered to absorb the kinetic energy of an impacting vehicle. This is accomplished by deforming (flattening) the guardrail. The terminal is designed to reduce the problems associated with impacting vehicles, such as spearing, vaulting and rollover. A primary advantage of the ET2000™ PLUS is its non-flared characteristic. The ET2000™ PLUS provides an end treatment solution for applications where there is insufficient space for a flared end terminal or when it is cost prohibitive to place embankment for a flared system.
The ET2000 PLUS™ is available in two sizes. The compact 7.62m NCHRP 350 Test Level 2 terminal is an economical solution for application where the posted speed is ≤ 70km/h. The standard 15.24m NCHRP 350 Test Level 3 terminal is acceptable for all posted speeds > 70km/h.
