Until now about 600 KAPU® poles have been hit without serious consequences.

KAPU®-NE gives way in a collision situation

The test group of Helsinki University of Technology drove a test car into a KAPU®-NE pole at a speed of one hundred kilometers. The vehicle received very minor damage, with even its windscreen remaining intact. Watch the video here.

KAPU®-NE poles do not absorb energy but they give way to a vehicle in a collision situation. The Finnish Transport Agency recommends the KAPU®-NE poles be used in roads when there is no walkway or trees behind the poles. If there is a danger to hit, for example, a pedestrian or a tree after the pole, KAPU®-HE poles are recommended.

The heights of the CE-marked poles, in accordance with the norm EN 12767, range from two to 15 meters. The patented steel cone pole is hot-galvanized.
