Crash Tested HVM Products

Crash Tested Products

Our crash testing program, has included successfully impact testing to PAS 68, IWA 14-1, ASTM F2656 criteria and encompasses a wide range of Vehicle Security Barriers (VSBs) including:

  • Road Blockers
  • Bollards (Static & Active)
  • Vehicle Barriers
  • Sliding & Manual Gates

With the emergence of a new aggressive form of vehicle borne terrorism in the 1990’s we have developed our product range to encompass a range of hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) solutions that have been impact tested in accordance with internationally recognised industry standards, that can be incorporated into the design of a robust HVM strategy.

The physical testing & manufacturing quality standards of our high security systems provide our clients with confidence in their proven performance.
