Curry Supply Introduces Crash Attenuator Truck
MARTINSBURG, PA Curry Supply Company has begun producing a truck-mounted crash attenuator truck. The newest addition to the Curry Supply product line has been designed primarily to protect the lives of motorists and job site workers. It also reduces the damage caused to structures and vehicles resulting from a motor vehicle collision at job sites and in high traffic areas.
The new Curry Supply crash truck features an attenuator and an arrow board.
The attenuator device is crash rated up to 65 mph, which meets all federal and state regulations for impact. It consists of strut and cartridge sections that are linked together on a support frame. The curved side rails are made from corrosion resistant aluminum tubes, which offer full width impact protection along the entire length of the unit. The side rails were designed to safely re-direct errant vehicles away from the rear of the truck. Two aluminum boxes are filled with a moisture proof, aluminum honeycomb material. The boxes, together with the curved side rails, absorb the kinetic energy from an impacting vehicle. The aluminum boxes are painted with a bright yellow powder-coated finish, for lasting durability.
The arrow board directs traffic by flashing a brightly lit arrow pattern made up of 15 or 25 amber LEDs. The large, highly visible, weather-resistant display panel is controlled in the comfort and safety of the truck cab. From inside the cab, the operator can use a control panel to conveniently fold the attenuator and arrow board into two parts when traveling to and from the job site. The crash attenuator and arrow board can be installed on all makes and models of chassis, new or used.
"Our new Crash Attenuator Truck complements our product line perfectly," said Jeff Shaw, Sales Manager. "Many of the companies who use our products - water trucks, mechanics trucks, fuel/lube trucks - also want to keep their employees and passing motorists out of harm's way. We are pleased to be able to offer them a safety truck in addition to a work truck."
