The Sentry Longitudinal Energy Dissipater (SLED) Euro-Terminal is a narrow, water filled attenuation device designed to shield the end of safety barriers in frontal and side impacts.
The SLED Euro-Terminal's unique Containment Impact Sled (CIS), safely brings an impacting vehicle to a controlled stop and prevents the vehicle from vaulting, while containing the plastic debris within the steel CIS frame structure. The side safety panels and internal steel cables re-direct an impacting vehicle away from the blunt barrier end.
The SLED Euro-Terminal is the only freestanding attenuation device that has been tested and accepted to EN1317-4 P4 requirements. Since the system is free standing, there are no pavement anchors, bolts or drilling to compromise the integrity of the roadway surface or bridge deck. The complete P4 SLED Euro-Terminal can be installed quickly with as little as one lorry and two workers and is designed to be placed on compacted dirt, gravel, decomposed granite, asphalt, or concrete.
