Description: The MAX-Tension™ Test Level 2 Guardrail Terminal System (MAX-TL2) is a non gating re-d irective end terminal for corrugated W-beam barrier systems in tangent configurations. The MAX-TL2 system utilizes tensioned cables, a telescoping panel, and a cutting tooth to absorb the kinetic energy and safely contain or redirect impacting vehicles. The system is comprised of a friction based energy absorbing impact head, two tension cables, a releasable post 1, a ground anchor assembly, and an energy absorbing coupler with integrated cutting tooth used in conjunction with standard AASHTO 12 Ga guardrail panels, posts, blockouts, and hardware.
