Avon RB980CR Sabre PAS 68 High Security Surface Barricades (Road blockers) provide temporary high level protection where sub-surface foundations are not practical.

Surface Barricades (Road Blockers RB980CR) - PAS 68 Impact Test

High Security Surface Barricades are designed mainly for temporary requirements, RB980CR PAS68 surface barricades are suitable as high security control points for conferences or military checkpoints. The high security surface barricades' fast deployment and high protection levels make RB980CR surface mount barricades ideal as a logistic support barriers for use in heatre and support base protection.

The adaptability of the RB980CR high security surface barricade (road blocker) complements the Avon Barrier range of PAS 68 high security equipment and can withstand direct impact forces in excess of 1,800 KJ, stopping a truck travelling at 50mph (80kph), the security barricade provides surface mounted protection to sites from extreme Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) attack or terrorist attack.

RB980CR PAS68 anti-terrorist surface barricades were developed in conjunction with the British Military, our in-house engineering team designed these modular barricades to combine ease of transportation and deployment with a high level of immediate protection.Surface Barricades (Road Blockers RB980CR) - PAS 68 Post Impact Test

Components are assembled in our fabrication facilities using a combination of an RB880CR blocking system in conjunction with modular approach ramps constructed using heavy gauge materials to give maximum strength and durability. This making RB980CR high security surface barricades the best solution to secure sites needing temporary and immediate high security protection.

PAS68 RB980CR security surface barricades have been independently physically tested in a number of full scale crash tests conducted in accordance with PAS 68 by the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL). This led to the RB980CR Sabre high security surface barricade (road blocker) becoming the first British built impact resistant surface roadblocker approved for use by the British Government.Surface Vehicle Road Blocker Barricades - lowered

The RB980CR high security surface barricade is an Electro-Hydraulically operated blocking system with a segment width of 2 or 3 meter. The surface barricade has a significant 1 meter height when fully raised and is comprised of an RB880CR blocking system with side and approach ramps giving a standard 4m wide secured lane (can be modified to suit on request) 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, which is attached to the ramp system, 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 barricade to be raised quickly (less than 1 second) in an emergency by utilising a hydraulic accumulator (optional). In the event of powerfailure a manual pump is provided to ensure operator control is maintained.

The surface barricade (road blocker) comes with a push-button control as standard and manned guard emergency systems can be accommodated.

Where the surface barricade (road blocker) control point is remote from the installation, we strongly recommend the fitting of a recordable CCTV system, traffic lights. It is also recommended that a safety skirt is fitted to the barricade

for safety reasons pedestrians, cyclists and motorcycles are advised not to use a roadblocker controlled roadway, additional safety measures can be incorporated into the blocker system if required.
