PAS 68 Compact Terra Barrier at The Crystal

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 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

Frontier Pitts project also included the installation of a high security cabinet rated to LPS 1175 Security Rating 2 to house all the controls, plus an HMI push button control station.
