How the FLEAT-MT Functions
The front single-sided section of the FLEAT-MT is similar to the roadside FLEAT and functions the same. Depending on the severity of the impact, the vehicle may be stopped before reaching the second impact head at post #4. If the end-on impact is severe enough, the vehicle will activate the second impact head. This impact head will then begin to slide down the rail sequentially kinking the backside rail.
The FLEAT-MT is a Median Terminal for use in wide medians. The components of the original roadside FLEAT are combined with a couple of small additional components to create the FLEAT-MT.
