With the rising threat of a vehicle-borne attacks due to terrorism and even vandalism, Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) measures are becoming an increasingly important part of any physical security strategy.
One of the main requirements of HVM systems is to prevent unauthorised vehicles from getting close to, or entering a site or building, making bollards and road blockers an ideal solution. HVM measures can be applied to a wide range of applications including but not limited to: public spaces, stadiums and venues, utility sites and shopping centres.
At Jacksons we have a range of PAS 68 barriers, fencing and bollards designed specifically to mitigate vehicle-borne attacks. Capable of halting a HGV, our bollards, fencing and barriers provide an unobtrusive security solution.
BSI PAS 68 Explained
PAS 68 is the BSi’s Publicly Available Specification for vehicle security barriers. It identifies the impact test methods, tolerances, test vehicle type and vehicle performance criteria that need to be met. It is considered the UK standard and the security industries benchmark for HVM products.
PAS 68 cites a classification system for the performance of vehicle security barriers and their supporting foundations when subjected to a single horizontal impact.
Equipment successfully tested in accordance with PAS 68 , which cover every form of vehicle barrier from fixed bollards to rising blockers, street furniture and crash rated fencing, is given a classification code which details the products rated performance. When specifying equipment, it is important to understand its rating which shown in a 5 to 7 part classification code:
