CASS® S3 M10

The CASS® S3 M10 cable barrier system assists in redirecting errant vehicles that would otherwise traverse the median of a roadway. The post employs a unique wave-shaped slot, which works in tandem with a strategically positioned, widened cable spread designed to help restrain various types of vehicles that impact the system within the Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH) crash test standards.


  • Utilizes an S3 X 5.7 lb. LF I-Beam.
  • Four-cable, high tension system.
  • Widened cable spread from 17″ to 42″.
  • Can use standard or pre-stretched cables.
  • Top two cables positioned in unique slot and two bottom cables retained with hook bolts.
  • MASH TL-3 can be used on 4:1 or flatter slopes, roadside or median.
  • MASH TL-4 can be used on 10:1 or flatter slopes.
  • FHWA letters B-232 and B-232A.


The slot and post are designed to help lower deflections as shown in crash tests by minimizing the length of unsupported cables. CASS® S3 M10 is tested to MASH Test Level 3 and Test Level 4.
