The SKT (Sequential Kinking Terminal) is an energy absorbing tangent terminal.

The SKT is 50'-0" long and has 8 breakaway posts. NCHRP-350 APPROVED!

During head-on impacts, the SKT head slides over the W-Beam guardrail. The rail is sequentially kinked or bent as it moves through the head. The kinked guardrail exits the head safely and the vehicle is brought to a controlled stop. When impacted along the side within the length-of-need, the SKT functions like guardrail. The errant vehicle is safely redirected back toward tests original travel path.

Post options include steel posts or timber posts.

Timber post options include: Type I (2 tubes), Type II (4 tubes), or Type III (8 tubes).
