MASH MAX-Tension

The MASH compliant MAX-Tension™ tangent end terminal, with Sabertooth™ technology, features the next level of impact performance and an ultra-slim design. The system utilises a tension-based design along with an energy absorbing coupler that features an all new cutting tooth design.

When impacted head-on, deceleration is controlled by friction developed in the tension cables and by cutting the downstream guardrail panels. When side impact occurs, tension cables can help safely redirect a motorist away from the hazard.

MAX-Tension guardrail end terminal technology, manufactured by ACP (Australian Construction Products), is fully compliant with the latest MASH Test Level 3 standards.


  • SAFER – Fully compliant to MASH TL3.
  • COST SAVINGS – Utilises standard guardrail components after Post 1
  • INNOVATIVE DESIGN – Narrow and lightweight
