Big Sandy Crash Barrels
Different configurations of barrels are used to create all of the weights used in current standard array geometries (200, 400, 700, 1400, and 2100 lbs).
The TrafFix Devices “Big Sandy” is an Impact Attenuator Sand Barrel that is easy to move and provides external verification of the barrels correct weight. External sand weight verification is easy — just use the right configuration barrel to obtain the correct weight. Sand leaking is eliminated because each sand container is one piece — no edge seals. Shipping, storing, and installation is easy because there are no cone inserts.
The Big Sandy Attenuator/Crash Cushion Sand Barrel has been tested and certified to meet the crash worthy requirements of NCHRP 350; Big Sandy Sand Barrels go above and beyond these requirement to provide the best in highway safety.
