Lindsay Corporation Launches ABSORB-M™ Crash Cushion System


Anchorless and water-filled, the MASH-tested crash cushion is the shortest length in its class for TL-3


(OMAHA, Neb.) – Aug. 29, 2019 Lindsay Corporation (NYSE: LNN), a leading global manufacturer and distributor of irrigation and infrastructure equipment and technology, has announced the launch of its ABSORB-M, a new, non-redirective, water-filled crash cushion system. Tested to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH) Test Level TL-2 and TL-3 standards, the ABSORB-M is work zone ready and ideally suited for narrow areas where road and workspace are limited.

The ABSORB-M is 24” (61 cm) wide and utilizes interchangeable, stackable elements to reduce inventory costs. Each element is equipped with accessible forklift points that allow for easy pick up. A TL-3 rated system utilizes just three elements, making installation among the quickest and easiest in the industry. Its universal transition adapts to most portable or permanent barriers.

Other features and benefits include:

  • Rapid deployment and retrieval
  • Anchorless installation – no foundation required
  • Built for use on almost any road surface
  • Suited for anchored and unanchored barriers

“At 21 feet, the ABSORB-M is the shortest length in its class for TL-3 – which is a huge benefit for contractors who want simple and efficient deployment and removal,” said Scott Marion, president of infrastructure at Lindsay Corporation.

As with all of Lindsay Transportation Solutions’ MASH-tested systems, the ABSORB-M comes with installation instructions, online installation courses, mobile-friendly installation videos and a worldwide network of distributor partners, along with a staff of field service technicians who are available to assist.
