VORTEQ

OVERVIEW
The Vorteq TL-3 Trailer is an innovative
attenuator efficiently designed to meet both
mandatory and optional NCHRP 350, Test Level 3
requirements. It also meets the UK requirements
for Lorry Mounted Crash Cushions at the highest
velocity level of 110 km/h (TD 49/07). The easy
to operate Vorteq TL-3 Trailer TMA is lightweight
and attaches to most host vehicles with a 20 ton
pintle hook. Acceptable host vehicle weight is
10,000 lbs. (4518 kg.) to infinite weight. Super fast
attachment means you have full TMA protection
in less than a minute. The open frame design
means inspection and maintenance is quick
and easy. As it is a trailer, you can safely and
affordably provide TMA protection to more of
your fl eet, including specialty vehicles.
The sleek Vorteq TL-3 Trailer TMA implements
innovative multi-stage, tube-in-tube energy
absorbing technology that inwardly shapes the
steel tubing. This significantly reduces debris
scatter thus reducing the potential for secondary
accidents. The tube-in tube design, along with the
collapsible forward X-Brace improves structural
stability. This efficiently robust design helps
ensure years of durable performance.
POST IMPACT DEBRIS CONTAINMENT
With any high speed accident, it is expected
that some material will scatter throughout the
accident “zones”. The debris scatter presents a
hazard to other traffic, pedestrians, personnel
in the work zone, and ultimately the clean up
crew. The Vorteq TL-3 Trailer TMA is designed
to minimize the TMA debris scatter by curling
the energy absorbing frame rails inwardly. This
inward spiraling of the tubes creates a contained
and compact system that is safer, easier and
quicker to clean up and remove after impact.
Furthermore, the wheels and axle are designed
to stay connected and functional after design
impacts thus allowing the damaged unit to
be driven away by the host vehicle without
additional equipment or special tow vehicles.
