Emergency exits made safer with MAGNUM shock absorbers

MAGNUM 64150 industrial shock absorbers are integrated into the overall safety design for the Amsterdam metro system. In contrast to previous solutions, ACE shocks ensure rapid opening and stopping for a five-ton barrier located at the end of an emergency escape route. In this application, over 45,000 in-lbs of energy are able to be absorbed per stroke. Through installing shock absorbers in end positions of the design, over 140,000 lbs of effective weight are able to be absorbed. ACE provided an excellent solution, even with an impact speed of approximately 6 feet per second and the barrier exit grille at an unusual impact angle.
