The Modified Eccentric Loader Terminal (MELT) is designed to provide a soft gating impact to prevent the end rail from spearing an impacting vehicle. The MELT terminal is installed on a parabolic offset with rails supported on shelf angles to minimise the potential for vehicle penetration.
The MELT has the flexural tensile strength required to deliver redirection performance of the determined length-of-need section.
