Barrier system

360 Karting Energy Transferand Absorption Technology

Why is the 360K barrier system the safest and operationally most efficient system on the market?

360K safety barrier system is equipped with the controlled 360K Energy Transfer and Absorption Technology (360K ETAT) that provides maximum energy transfer and impact absorption through a reinforced rubber element in the anchoring system, distributed all around the track. It efficiently transfers the force along the barrier and the excess energy is transferred to the ground, so it effectively prevents dangerous situations on the track, therefore ensures driver’s safety and minimizes go-kart damage.

Key Performance Factors

​​The safest barrier system on the market that prevents dangerous situations on the track.

Bounce BackEffect Prevention

With 360K ETAT, the impact energy is absorbed and transferred onto multiple absorbers and into the ground, so the bounce back effect is prevented, which is listed as one of the Top 3 causes for injuries and crash damages on go-karts.

SubmariningEffect Prevention

Optimized shape of the contact surface and design of anchoring system prevent going underneath the barrier, which is listed as one of the Top 3 causes for injuries and crash damages on go-karts

“Flying Over”Effect Prevention

Optimized shape of the contact surface and design of anchoring system prevent flying over effect.

Extreme ImpactAbsorption

For 360K, preventing injuries is paramount. With the know-how acquired through the years of rental karting applications, 360K ETAT system minimizes the forces even in the extreme conditions.

Controlled deformation of the 360K barrier system at extreme impacts prevents drivers’ injuries and go-kart damage. The deformation is quickly and easily repaired, so there is no uninterrupted business.

Adaptive ImpactAbsorption

Adaptive impact absorption means adding more absorbers where it is necessary and optimizing the system where it’s needed. Planning of the optimal positioning of the absorbers starts in the design stage of the track project and it’s based on multiple years of direct involvement of 360K engineers into technical operations of the most advanced go-kart tracks in the world.

Additional absorbers can be also installed later, if it is needed.

Easy Maintenancefor more Profit

Investing in the most advanced and tested go-kart barrier system is one of the main reasons why your go-kart business will be more profitable and easy to manage.
The cost of only five non-operational Saturdays due to the wrong choice of barrier system that allows dangerous situations on the track:

10 hours* 10 go-karts * 15 EUR *6 sessions /hour * 5 times = 45 000 EUR of direct loss revenue

One barrier type doesn’t fitall the situations on the track.

Flex Supersafe

Flex
  • Used on most exposed parts of the track
  • Superior + level of impact absorption
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor track
  • Various color options available.

Extro-Slim

EXTRO-SLIM-image
  • The slimmest barrier system on the market
    (in average it covers 70 % of the track)
  • Superior level of impact absorption
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor track

Block

Block
  • Used on less exposed areas, mainly outside of the track area
  • Both side usability
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor tracks
  • Various color options available.

The Science Of SafetyBarrier Function

The 360 Karting barrier system is known for the best balance between durability and elasticity for maximum impact absorption and dissipation throughout the connected barriers.

Flex Supersafe Barrier

Extro-Slim Barrier

Depending on “adaptive impact absorption”, 78-86 % of impact energy is transferred within the “elastic zone”. The barrier structure deforms up to 210 mm during the impact without any structural damage.

Block Barrier

At the impact, the block barrier deforms for 105mm (4 1/4”) and 19 % of the impact energy is transferred within the “elastic zone”, 81 % of impact energy is absorbed in the “rigid zone”.

Anchoring Options

Solid and well-engineered anchoring for maximum impact absorption.

StandardAnchoring

STANDARD-image1

For medium to high quality concrete slabs

  • Minimal required slab thickness: 120 mm (5”)
  • Concrete strength: min C 20/25 or 3000 psi
  • Number of connection points: 4

ReinforcedAnchoring

Reinforced-image1

for asphalt, low quality and/or thin slabs

  • Minimal required slab/asphalt thickness: 75 mm (3”)
  • Concrete strength: min C 16/20 or 2500 psi
  • Number of connection points: up to 8

Extra ReinforcedAnchoring

Extra-Reinforced-image1

for soft grounds and thin asphalts

  • Minimal required slab thickness: 120 mm (5”)
  • Concrete strength: min C 20/25 or 3000 psi
  • Number of connection points: 4

Multiple TrackLayouts

A quick and smooth reposition of the barrier system, which completely changes the layout of the track. Different trajectory options will improve the long-term attractiveness of your karting track, where the drivers will never get bored.
A rapid change of the track layout is possible with Extro-slim or Flex supersafe barrier system, and specially designed anchoring with threaded inserts for medium and high-quality concrete slabs.”
