All vertical elements created to prevent vehicle incursion should be fit for purpose and successfully tested to conform to BSI Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 68 ‘Impact test specifications for vehicle security barriers’.
PAS 68 is the UK’s standard and the security industry’s benchmark for HVM (Hostile Vehicle Mitigation) equipment, and is the specification against which perimeter security equipment is tested as part of the on-going research to prevent VBIED (Vehicle Born Improvised Explosive Device) attacks.

30mph test – single block: V/7500/N2/48/90/6.6/0.0
40mph test – single block: V/7500/N2/64/90/12.3/2.2
30mph test comprising 3 staggered blocks: V/7500/N2/48/60/2.0/0.0
