Universal TAU-II™ Crash Cushion
The TAU-II™ is a fully re-directive crash cushion used at difficult locations where the most demanding performance is a necessity. As a consequence this system has been tested exhaustively.
The TAU-II™ system is ideally suited for roadway hazards such as the ends of rigid barriers, tollbooths, utility poles and more.
Where it is preferred to have the majority of impact trajectories on the impact side of the system, such as narrow median and roadside applications, the TAU-II™ is the most effective, cost efficient crash cushion system available.
