CEN/TS 17342

Road restraint systems - Motorcycle road restraint systems which reduce the impact severity of motorcyclist collisions with safety barriers

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 June 2019
Status: active
Page Count: 52
ICS Code (Road equipment and installations): 93.080.30
ICS Code (Accident and disaster control): 13.200
scope:

This document specifies requirements for the impact performance of systems designed for the reduction of impact severity for PTW riders impacting safety barriers whilst sliding along the ground, having fallen from their PTW vehicle. The protection systems concerned are those fitted to barriers or barriers that have an inherent PTW rider protection or risk reduction capability. This document excludes the assessment of the vehicle restraint capabilities of barriers and the risk that they represent to the occupants of impacting cars. The assessment of barrier performance with respect to impacting vehicles is covered by EN 1317-1 and EN 1317-2.

This document defines performance classes taking into account rider speed classes, impact severity and the working width of the system with respect to rider impacts.

For systems designed to be added to a standard barrier, the test results are valid only when the system is fitted to the model of barrier used in the tests since the performance will not necessarily be the same if the system is fitted to a different barrier.
