Crash Cushions devices are arranged in ascending categories: Type B is the lowest category of crash cushion device and Type E is the highest category of crash cushion device.  Higher category crash cushion devices can be substituted for lower category device, if all necessary accommodations for installations are made and the installation is in compliance with the manufacture's recommendations.
