PAS 68 Compact Terra Barrier at an International Airport in the UK

Frontier Pitts PAS 68 Compact Terra Barrier was the specified Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) access control solution as it met the threat level requirement – a hostile vehicle could not reach a higher speed of 30mph/48kph on approach as the landscape had been designed to combat this.The Compact Terra Barrier, which has been successfully impact tested to the PAS 68 specification, is also a subtle, aesthetically pleasing HVM solution that would not highlight the security issue to the local community.

PAS 68:2010 Classification Code – V Drop Arm Gate 3500[N1]/48/90:1.5/0.0
