Since 1946

Elderlee installs permanent and temporary construction impact attenuators used to shield hazardous objects found on highways or in work zones. Attenuators may be installed on the ends of guardrail, at gore areas, toll booths, concrete barrier ends, bridge piers, or other potentially hazardous areas.

Crash cushions are generally proprietary systems that have been crash tested to meet Federal and State certification criteria.  They can vary in shape, size, and material due to various site conditions, roadway speeds, or specific purpose.

Many people believe that all impact attenuators are filled with sand or water like in the movies, but many are filled with recycled material compressed in replaceable cartridges. Some attenuators can withstand multiple hits, whereas others can only absorb one impact before disposition.

We are able to acquire all types of attenuators that your job may require.
