Crash boxes

​​

​Crash boxes offer a very high energy absorption capacity. They work parallel to the coupler, and are typically combined with anti-climbers for optimal structural collapse, because they are not designed to transfer high vertical and lateral loads.​


Capacity​

  • Stroke: 50-1000mm​​
  • Force: 200-3000kN

Features

  • Non-reversible energy absorption (must be replaced after use)
  • Non-velocity sensitive
  • Close to 100% efficiency
  • Absorbs residual impact after initial collision
  • Shape can vary to fit the space available
  • Release/shear bolts ensure the coupler releases in a controlled manner and pushes through the train pocket without interf ring with crash boxes, or the structure of th​e cab
