BSi PAS 68 Impact Test Specifications for Vehicle Security Barriers

BSi PAS 68 is the latest BSi’s Publicly Available Specification for vehicle security barriers. It has become 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 ongoing research to prevent VBIED (Vehicle Born Improvised Explosive Device) attacks. BSi PAS 69 complements this specification by providing guidance on the product installation.

This guide explores BSi PAS 68. The ratings and specifications illustrate the different levels of BSi PAS 68. The importance of after sales and who should maintain your equipment is another aspect which should be considered. BSi PAS 69 should be considered to ensure this equipment is installed correctly.
