Frontier Pitts PAS 68 Compact Terra Barrier Takes On the World With installations of the Hostile Vehicle Mitigation Compact Terra Barrier growing both nationally and around the World with sites now in Tanzania, Cyprus, Greece and Russia, Frontier Pitts has literally seen the Compact Terra fly off!
The Compact Terra Barrier is a BSi PAS 68:2010 impact tested Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) Drop Arm Barrier which successfully stopped a 3.5t lorry travelling at 30mph (48kph). The aesthetically pleasing HVM solution looks like a normal car park barrier so is subtle enough not to highlight any sites potential security threat to its local community. There are a wide range of accessories available for the Compact Terra Barrier including full height swivel skirts that provide the visual deterrent of a gate whilst keeping the operational speed of a drop arm barrier.
Compact Terra Barrier is PSSA Verified
Over recent years, especially in the run up to the Olympics, the PAS 68 impact test specification program saw an influx of activity. With the Hostile Vehicle Mitigation Industry seemingly saturated with new permanent and temporary products, new standards were required to ensure not only the quality of the installed equipment but the same specification of product that was successfully crash tested was, in fact, installed.
As a PSSA (Perimeter Security Suppliers Association) certified product, Frontier Pitts can prove that the Compact Terra Barrier has been verified during an independent third party audit against a range of detailed criteria to confirm the HVM Barrier’s reliability, longevity, serviceability or safety.
The PSSA Scheme can only help to assist the industry’s clients when deciding what HVM solution to install on their site. Sally Osmond, Brand & Development Manager of Frontier Pitts says ‘Since our first impact test in 2004, we have worked tirelessly to forge the HVM industry forward. By achieving the PSSA verified status we can install faith in our clients, the faith that the product they receive is of the same specification and resilience as the product that we, as a company, have successfully impacted tested to the PAS68 standard’.
Since Frontier Pitts Compact Terra Barrier and other HVM solutions have become PSSA Verified, we have received a significant increase in enquiries from overseas regarding the various accreditations that we hold for our British engineered designs which further highlights the need for such standards awarded to a quality and reliable product.The PAS 68 Compact Terra Barrier was the specified Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) solution as it met the threat level requirement – a hostile vehicle would 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 latest BSi PAS 68:2010 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
