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