The Smart Cushion Crash Attenuator is a revolutionary, speed-dependent product that varies stopping resistance during an impact. It allows lighter and slower-moving vehicles to have longer ride-down distances and lower ride-down G forces.

Unlike fixed-resistance attenuators, the Smart Cushion Innovations (SCI) attenuator does not reach maximum stopping resistance unless a vehicle is traveling at the maximum design speed. This fully redirective, non-gating, bi-directional, impact attenuator was designed for maximum safety and reusability, as well as outstanding durability before, during and after an impact


The hydraulic porting of the attenuator ensures that the proper resistance is used to stop the vehicle before it reaches the end of the cushion’s usable length.
