End Treatments: SKT™

NEW! SKT-SP Standard Post System – the same SKT already in use all across America

  • Enhanced upper and lower hinged Post #1
  • Hinged W6 Post #2, no ground strut
  • Cost savings for Post #3 and beyond:
    - generic standard W6 steel guardrail posts
    - standard W-Beam rail sections
  • Simplified installation and maintenance

How the SKT™ Functions

The SKT™ 350 (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 its original travel path.

New Soil Plate Option

The FHWA now allows the 4'-6'' long foundation tubes at posts 3 & 4 or posts 3 - 8 to be installed without the soil plates. This design is optional and the contract plans must be followed.

Benefits and Features

  • The only component different from the FLEAT™ is the impact head. This greatly reduces inventory requirements.
  • The forces required to push the impact head down the rail are lower than other tangent end terminals.
  • The impact head weighs less than 175 pounds. The high strength steel construction and lower impact forces results in a better performing design.
  • The impact head is significantly easier to remove from the rail compared to competitive systems.
  • The refined design over older technology improves the impact performance efficiency. The longer impact head and improved cable anchor bracket results in a better terminal.
  • The SKT™ is available from multiple distributors. This means the end of sole source supply.
  • Fits a wide range of applications:
    • Tangent
    • Wood or Steel Posts
    • Test Level 2 and 3 Speed

Note: The SKT is available in a 2, 4, or 8 foundation tube option.
