IHE endorses Passive Safety Crash Demonstration Day

  • Monday January 24, 2022

Have you ever seen what happens when a vehicle collides with a crash barrier at 60mph? Or witnessed for yourself the life-saving capabilities of passively safe, crash friendly street furniture?

Well now you can! On 6th July 2022 Passive Safety UK will be holding another FREE to attend National Passive Safety Crash Demonstration Day. This unique, exciting and informative event is taking place at Darley Moor Motorcycle Road Racing Track, near Ashbourne, Derbyshire. DE6 2ET

This year the live crash demonstrations will include:

  • a traditional, unforgiving 140mm diameter steel post struck at high speed;
  • an aluminium passive post installed within the working width of a TCB restraint system;
  • an aluminium passive post supporting a VMS, solar panel and wind turbine assembly and a new fibre composite signal pole, complete with energised signal heads and an electrical isolation system.

Additional demonstrations and a large exhibition of other products and services compatible with road safety will also take place adjacent to the crash area. Due to the opportunity to learn from the day, this event is endorsed for CPD certificates by both the IHE and the CIHT.

The event is further endorsed by Jim Gallagher, National Highways.
