MASH Compliance

What is MASH compliance?

MASH or Manual of Assessing Safety Hardware is the new basis for crash testing in Australia. Commencing in January 2020, it provides an improved standard for road safety barriers, ensuring an improved ability to redirect uncontrolled vehicles to a safe stop.

Improved standards and testing 

MASH sets out a stringent set of crash tests to validate barrier systems before they can be approved for use on our road networks.

MASH compliant road barriers have the capacity to safely manage the vehicles of today that have an increased mass and centre of gravity.

MASH addresses known weaknesses in the previous standards regarding run off impacts.
