The proprietary Pedestrian Access Terminal (PAT) is a non-gating terminal system intended for installation along low speed roadways adjacent to pedestrian attractions such as water bodies and hiking trails where W-beam guardrail protection is required while maintaining access points through the barrier for pedestrians. The system consists of two precast concrete terminal blocks connected to steel foundation posts that are connected to each other below ground with a steel tensioning member. In accordance with Ontario Accessibility requirements for access to recreational trails and beach access routes, the opening width between the concrete terminal blocks was set at 1.0 m. On the opposite end of the opening on each concrete terminal block, a thrie beam to w-beam bridge transition was connected to each block and foundation post. The system met several of the crash test evaluation criteria for a terminal system for MASH TL-1.
