Hostile Vehicle Mitigation

Crash Rated Manual Arm Barrier | vehicle security barrier

The ideal solution for helping to secure car parks, improving security, traffic control or as a Hostile Vehicle Mitigation application.

The manually operated lifting barrier is a Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) solution, ideal for low volumes of traffic flow or where the access point is used infrequently.

The 6m gate has been physically impact tested and rated to IWA 14-1 criteria with a 7500kg N2 vehicle travelling at 48kph (30mph) by independent testing agency, Horiba MIRA Ltd.

PAS 68 impact tests on variances of the gate have included 3 metre, 4.5 metre & 6 metre clear width opening models of the gate to achieve ratings.

The barrier has also successfully undergone IWA 14-1 testing using an 1500Kg (M1) saloon car travelling at 48kph (30mph) and passed the NPSA’s (previously known as CPNI) Vehicle Access Delay Standard (VADS) testing which provides assurances that it is capable of withstanding repetitive nudging and ramming to gain access.
