Among its offerings, Lindsay Transportation Solutions manufactures and sells road safety equipment including the X-LITE Guardrail End Terminal, a redirective, gating end terminal that is a component of guardrail systems used on highways across the United States.

The X-LITE Guardrail End Terminal meets the guidelines contained in NCHRP Report 350 and has successfully passed crash and safety tests in accordance with Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) standards and criteria, and remains qualified for use on America’s roadways.

FAST FACTS

The X-LITE Guardrail End Terminal successfully passed crash and safety tests in accordance with FHWA standards and criteria, and it remains qualified for use on America’s roadways today. The FHWA published Safety Eligibility Letter CC-120 finding the X-Lite acceptable for use on America’s roadways and eligible for Federal transportation funding. FHWA’s eligibility letter reflects that the X-LITE has been crash-tested to NCHRP Report 350 federal standards and is eligible for federal reimbursement.

In May 2017, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) examined available end terminal performance data and found no reason to conclude that the devices reviewed – including the X-LITE – are unsafe.

The FHWA also confirmed that the original laboratory crash testing for the X-LITE was performed in accordance with NCHRP Report 350 guidance, and their expert found no concerns with the original crash test report.

No guardrail end terminal system can prevent every tragedy; the X-Lite Guardrail End Terminal is designed and manufactured to reduce the number and severity of injuries sustained from automobile accidents.

A variety of factors contribute to the severity of an impact. These include: speed; the angle at which a vehicle makes impact; road conditions; driver impairment; and whether or not the equipment was installed and maintained correctly.

Additional information about guardrail end terminals and crash test standards for road safety equipment like the X-Lite (e.g., Barrier Terminals and Crash Cushions) can be found on the FHWA’s website, here.
