Lindsay Corporation says its new Absorb-M water-filled crash cushion system is designed for “rapid deployment and retrieval” and can be used in narrow areas with limited road and work space.

The 21-foot-long, 24-inch-wide non-redirective safety cushions do not require a foundation or anchors for installation, can be used on most road surfaces and adapt to most permanent or portable barriers, the company says.

“At 21 feet, the Absorb-M is the shortest length in its class for (MASH) TL-3 (standards), which is a huge benefit for contractors who want simple and efficient deployment and removal,” says Scott Marion, Lindsay president of infrastructure.

Each barrier in the system has access points for forklifts and has interchangeable and stackable elements for reducing inventory costs and  for quick, easy installation, the company says.
