Until now over 1000 KAPU® poles have been hit without serious consequences.

KAPU®-HE: flexible in collision situations

The unique patented structure of KAPU®-HE pole reduces the risk of injury for passengers. The frame of the pole absorbs the movement energy of colliding vehicles and slows speed in a controlled manner to a safe level. This is how KAPU®-HE protects people in the colliding vehicle and other road users.

The test group of the Helsinki University of Technology drove a test car to a KAPU®-HE pole with the speed of one hundred kilometers. The car stopped safely and in a controlled manner. "Excellent results", said lead researcher Jarkko Valtonen. Watch the video here.
