Oklahoma City, OK
Catch nets are a critical component of Stroud’s recent Track Safety promotion. Check out the use of a Stroud catch net in this well engineered system designed by Royce Miller, with Bob Stroud consulting, at Maryland International Raceway. With limited runoff available at this facility, a system was needed to stop 300+ mph dragsters quickly.
Steel cables attach the net to massive concrete blocks that pivot and then drag at impact. This stops the vehicle quickly, but in a progressive manner to limit the severity of impact on the driver. A wall of water filled barrels (used in the same manner as seen on many highways) provides the last line of defense.
Stroud Safety has been supplying competitive drivers with Drag Chutes and Launchers, Seat Belts, Window Nets, Ballistic Blankets and Diapers, Fire Suits, Fire Suppression Kits, and more for over 26 years! Stroud re-certifies all their SFI rated products and specializes in custom design applications for many of their products.
