In order to properly control traffic and ensure the safety of both road workers and travelers during road works and calamities JD Nederland
has developed two types of Crash absorbers. Our absorbers are easy
to operate and simple to maintain. The JD-CMA-9000 is a crash absorber
in container form. It can be utilized by trucks using a cable, chain or hook-arm container stem giving it extreme flexibility. The crash absorber in this format can also be used as an action wagon when stationary.

The JD-TMA-9000 is a crash absorber which by use of a DIN plate or strong hooks is easily connected to the back of a truck. It's uniquely developed hydraulic system makes sure the crash cushion is always in horizontal position. Both crash absorbers have been tested and approved in accordance with regulations listed in the NCHRP 350 rapport and are suited to absorb shocks at  50, 70 en 100 km/hour. As official importer of
