BSI PAS 68
BSI PAS 68
This Publicly Available Specification (PAS) has been prepared to address the needs of organizations who want assurance that vehicle security barriers will provide the level of impact resistance they require. As the characteristics across tested and untested systems differ, in both function and form, a comparative means of assessing their performance is required.
PAS 68 identifies impact test methods, tolerances, test vehicle type and vehicle performance criteria that need to be met in order to conform to PAS 68. PAS 68 cites a classification system for the performance of vehicle security barriers and their supporting foundations when subjected to a single horizontal impact by a 7500Kg truck travelling at 30, 40 and 50mph. This standard is most commonly recognised across the UK and Europe.
Our range of Anti-Vehicle Fencing and Bristorm Impeder Bollards are all tested to PAS 68. Bristorm Stopper Bollards are tested to BSI PAS 170 meaning they will mitigate a passenger vehicle travelling at a lower speed. PAS 170 Bollards are cost-effective alternatives when PAS 68 Bollards aren't required.
