The HEART™ is a redirective, non-gating crash cushion.  It is tested to NCHRP Report 350 Test Level 3. The HEART™ crash cushion uses High Molecular Weight/High Density Polyethylene (HMW/HDPE) side panels and a rounded frontal nose piece, which are connected to steel diaphragms mounted on tubular steel tracks. The HMW/HDPE panels and nose help reduce repair and maintenance costs.
