  • What are PAS 68 bollards?

    PAS 68 bollards are made from steel and have been tested and given a PAS 68 rating. The rating is expressed as a sequence of letters, symbols and numbers indicating the test method, mass and type of vehicle, test speed, angle of impact, impact penetration, and debris dispersion. They are designed to stop vehicles travelling at high speeds attempting a vehicle-as-weapon attack, and are used for counter terror purposes. They come in fixed and automated versions.

    What is the spacing for PAS 68 bollards?

    To ensure that areas are accessible and provide wheelchair access, whilst ensuring cars cannot fit through the gap, PAS 68 bollards should be spaced at a maximum distance of 1200mm. This is in accordance with PAS 69: installation guidelines for hostile vehicle mitigation measures.

    Where are PAS 68 bollards used?

    PAS 68 bollards are often used around city centres, transport hubs, concert venues, stadiums, and high security properties including data centres, utilities, and government properties.
