Yellow Stripe - Vehicle shallow barricades

Avon RB880CR Defender High Security Vehicle Barricades are crash tested shallow foundation anti-terrorist road blockers crash tested to the PAS 68 criteria providing a high level of protection where deeper foundations are not possible / practical.


Shallow foundation vehicle barricades crash tested PAS68Shallow wedge vehicle barricades are an anti-terrorist truck stoppers designed to complement the Avon Barrier range of high security equipment. RB880CR Shallow Foundation security barricades (road blockers) can withstand direct impact forces in excess of 1,800 KJ, these PAS 68 tested barricades provides shallow foundation protection to sites from extreme Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) attack, stopping a truck travelling at 50mph (80kph).

Shallow foundation vehicle barricades

The high security barricades (road blockers) were developed by our in-house engineering team to overcome specific site limitations and using the experience gained with the design, testing and production of the RB780CR PAS68 High Security Barricade, the RB880CR vehicle barricade (road blocker) is an additional highly dependable anti-terrorist security product that will easily interface with a wide range of control equipment.

High security vehicle barricades (road blockers) are assembled in our fabrication facilities using heavy gauge materials to give maximum strength and durability. This makes the RB880CR PAS68 barricade an ideal product to protect high security establishments, iconic buildings and critical infrastructure where existing underground services or other depth restrictions are an issue.

The RB880CR PAS68 barricade has been independently physically tested in a number of full scale crash tests conducted in accordance with PAS68 by the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL). This led to the RB880CR Defender high security vehicle barricade becoming the first British built shallow foundation barricade installed by the British Government.Post Crash Test PAS 68 Shallow Vehicle Barricades (Road Blockers)

The RB880CR PAS 68 vehicle barricade is an Electro-Hydraulically operated blocking system with a standard segment width of 2m or 3m. The blockers has an imposing 1 m height when fully raised and is comprised of a static sub-surface ground frame with foundation support legs and a hinged, rising impact wedge. Raised/lowered back indication signalling can be provided to enable remote monitoring of the blocker status on a real time basis (optional).

The hydraulic power pack is controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC) enabling connection of virtually any access control to the blocker. In addition, the PLC can be configured to enable the road blocker to be raised quickly (under 1 second) in an emergency by utilising an hydraulic accumulator (optional). In the event of power failure a manual pump is provided to ensure operator control is maintained.

High security vehicle barricade comes with a push-button control as standard, however it can be customised to interface with a wide range of access control equipment to suit specific customer requirements (available as options) and any configuration including (but not limited to) inductive loop systems, card readers, communication equipment and manned guard emergency systems can be accommodated.Shallow Vehicle Barricade (Road Blocker) with safety skirt

Where the high security barricade control point is remote from the installation, we strongly recommend the fitting of a recordable CCTV system, traffic lights and safety inductive loop systems. It is also recommended that a safety skirt is fitted. For safety reasons pedestrians, cyclists and motorcycles are advised not to use a blocker controlled roadway, additional safety measures can be incorporated into the blocker system if required.
