MIDLAND, VA / ACCESSWIRE / November 22, 2016 / Easi-Set Worldwide, a subsidiary of Smith-Midland Corporation (DE) (OTCQX: SMID) product announcement. Easi-Set Worldwide announces a successful MASH TL3 FREESTANDING crash test of their enhanced J-J Hooks temporary precast concrete barrier design at the Texas Transportation Institute, College Station, TX.

The new J-J Hooks MASH-tested Freestanding barrier, along with the previously MASH tested J-J Hooks restrained Bolt-down and Pin-down barriers, are fully compliant 2 years ahead of the requirements contained in the January 7, 2016 AASHTO/FHWA Joint Implementation Agreement for MASH. The enhanced MASH freestanding design will eventually replace the extremely successful NCHRP 350 TL3 design originally tested in 1999. Currently, more than 12,000,000 linear feet of J-J Hooks temporary barrier have been produced and installed worldwide.

MASH TL3 (Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware) testing uses a larger/heavier test vehicle (crew cab pickup) which imparts substantially more energy at impact compared to the vehicle (standard pickup) used in the NCHRP 350 testing. The MASH Test Level 3 freestanding J-J Hooks barrier crash test produced the lowest permanent deflection in the industry.
