Avon Universal Cedar Gate

Avon Universal Cedar Gate

IWA 14-1 Manual Gate

The Avon Universal Cedar Gate has evolved from the original Newey barrier. A UK government design of security gate that is a cost effective means of securing an entry or exit point whilst still providing a high level of protection.

Our redesign of the gate enhances its flexibility introducing universal frames for dual handing, making it very simple to install.

The 6m Gate was rated to the IWA 14-1 classification with a 7200kg N2A truck travelling at 48kph at the independent testing agency Horiba MIRA Ltd.

Product Overview

A Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) solution, ideal for low volumes of traffic flow or where the access point is used infrequently.

Capable of stopping a 7200kg truck travelling at 48 kph (30mph)

Its simple yet effective design makes it easy for local contractors to install and is ideal for protecting infrastructure in remote locations or where power is not available.

The arm sits 900mm above the roadway and is supported by 2 universal side support frames. The gate is counterweighted for ease of operation and is fitted with a simple locking mechanism to secure the barrier in the lowered / closed position.

The Cedar Gate has had a multitude of successful crash tests carried out on it:

  • IWA 14-1 testing using a 7200kg (N2A) truck @48kph/30mph
  • IWA 14-1 testing using an 1500Kg (M1) saloon car travelling @48kph/30mph.
  • PAS 68 testing at 3 metre, 4.5 metre & 6 metre clear width opening models of the gate with a 7500kg truck @48kph/30mph
  • CPNI’s (VADS) Vehicle Access Delay Standard testing which provides assurances that it is capable of withstanding repetitive nudging and ramming to gain access.
