TREND™ 350 Flared
The TREND™ 350 Flared End Terminal is a single-sided, energy-absorbing steel post terminal.
The system is NCHRP Report 350 Test Level 3 compliant. The TREND™ 350 Flared can be used at the end of W-beam guardrail between 27 ¾” and
31” in assembly height. While the TREND™ 350 Flared is designed primarily for use with single-sided W-beam barriers,
special transitions will allow for use with various other barriers.
Upon frontal impacts within NCHRP 350 criteria, the
TREND™ 350 Flared absorbs energy by creating friction between the guardrail
panels and deformation of the rail sections as they slide rearward over the
adjoining panels. During design side impacts, the yielding posts laterally
support the rail sections, smoothly redirecting the impacting vehicle.
Narrow impact head provides less obstruction to ongoing maintenace operations.
All-steel galvanized design for longer life and durability.
Assembly and Repair Advantages:
May be used for applications between 27 ¾” and 31” high.
Minimal assembly required.
100% galvanized steel components reduce weather /UV related issues.
Contained debris field after impact.
Post Spacing: 6'3"
Weight: ~800 lbs.
