Trapezoidal crash cushion APD W80 VOESTALPINE


APD W80 is a crash cushion acc. EN 1317-3 that acts as shock absorber. This exclusive road safety product is designed and tested by voestalpine and distributed exclusively in France and the Benelux by SOLOSAR®, which also provides pre-assembly, maintenance and storage at its site in Sarreguemines, France.


APD W80 is a trapezoidal geometry crash cushion of level 80 - D1 - Z1 according to EN 1317-3 and is redirective in case of side impact.

In France, APD W80 meets the requirements of the RNER, which stipulates a level 80 crash cushion according to EN 1317-3 on roads with speed limits of >80 or 90 km/h.

The APD W80 device gradually absorbs the energy released on impact with a vehicle. The central panels slide individually on the 2 monorails anchored to the ground. This double anchoring system allows the attenuator to remain upright, safely redirecting the collapsing vehicle and preventing any lateral or vertical movement of the attenuator.


The benefits of APD W80 by voestalpine :

  • Quick and easy installation on concrete or asphalt slab (see installation instructions to download opposite) - Low drilling depth: 130 mm
  • Fixing on double monorail, without cable or chain 
  • Optimised space requirement
  • Hot-dip galvanised, fire-resistant steel (class 0) - no plastic 
  • Crash-tested and designed in Austria
  • Time-saving: can be pre-assembled by SOLOSAR ready to install
  • Elements can be completely dismantled and replaced per segment in case of impact
  • Options: connection to concrete, New Jersey or steel barriers 


The secret lies in the deformation elements, which are fixed by a removable mechanical connection, resulting in a rigid yet elastic connection that allows disassembly. This makes maintenance and replacement much easier.



After impact, APD P80 is highly reusable. Its simple and innovative design allows for consistent re-use and low spare parts costs.
