CTS – Vehicle Security Barrier-List
The following list of vehicle safety barriers includes successfully tested barriers with us and helps you as a basis for decision-making to find the right product for your needs and areas of application.
(If you wish a different sorting of the list, please contact us at email@example.com)
Each security barrier has its own characteristics that must be taken into account and weighed against the needs and conditions of your facility.
Below are some features to consider: Barrier type, product name, test standard/test type, floor type/surface, test year and the test result.
These barriers were tested according to the test methods PAS 68, IWA 14-1, ASTM F2656/2656M or the Technical Guideline "Mobile Vehicle Security Barriers". In detail this means:
This test method was first published by the US Department of State in 1985 (SD-STD-02.01). It has since been replaced by ASTM F2656/2656M-20. The test vehicle is in most cases a small car of 1100 kg, a pick-up truck of 2270 kg, an American truck of 6800 kg or a truck of European design of 7200 kg. The most commonly tested impact speeds are 50 km/h, 65 km/h and 80 km/h. The angle of impact is usually 90°. The penetration (= vehicle penetration depth) is divided into three levels (P1: ≤1m; P2: ≤7m; P3: ≤30m). This is measured from the rear of the drive-through barrier facing away from the impact and the Datum Point (reference point on the test vehicle). The maximum fragment removed is documented.
PAS 68 was first published in 2005 and replaced by the 2013 version. This test method enables the certification of passage barriers such as road barriers, gates and high security gates and is based on the differentiation of six test vehicle types (car with 1 500 kg test weight to truck with 30 000 kg test weight). The most commonly tested impact speeds are 48 km/h, 64 km/h and 80 km/h. The impact angle is usually 90°. The penetration (= vehicle penetration depth) is measured from the rear of the drive-through barrier facing away from the impact and the Datum Point (reference point on the test vehicle). Fragments are documented from 25 kg.
The IWA was published in 2013 to provide an internationally recognised and uniformly applied specification. This test method assesses the performance of security barriers based on nine different test vehicles (cars with 1 500 kg test weight to trucks with 30 000 kg test weight). Frequently tested impact speeds here are also 48 km/h, 64 km/h and 80 km/h. The angle of impact is usually 90°. The penetration is measured from the front of the security barrier facing the impact and ends at the Datum Point (reference point on the test vehicle). Fragments are documented from 25 kg.
Technical guideline "Mobile Vehicle Security Barriers"
The technical guideline "Mobile Vehicle Security Barriers" (TR) was prepared in 2018 by the Police Technical Institute at the German Police University (PTI) and describes the special requirements for mobile police security barriers. This test procedure was written exclusively for mobile security barriers. The TR distinguishes between three protection classes (SK1, SK2 and SK2+). In each protection class, a distinction is made between a paved and an unpaved surface. The test can use a truck with a test weight of 7,500 kg, a truck with a test weight of 12,000 kg or a truck with 30,000 kg. The impact speeds are 53 km/h, 42 km/h, 83 km/h, 66 km/h, ≥ 73 km/h or ≥ 46 km/h, depending on the selected protection class and truck. The penetration depth is measured from the point of impact to the maximum penetration depth of any part ≥ 100 kg. Fragments are documented from 2 kg. To pass a full test, both a 90° and 45° impact angle test must be performed.
DIN SPEC 91414-1
DIN SPEC 91414-1 emerged from the project "Development of approval guidelines for mobile vehicle security barriers to protect public spaces from crossing acts" (acronym "ZuFahrtSchutz") as part of the "Protection of public Clear before crossing deeds”.
In the international field there are several documents that specify requirements and test methods for mobile, stationary and semi-stationary vehicle security barriers. DIN SPEC 91414 describes the national requirements for mobile vehicle safety barriers. It essentially consists of three tests: 1. impact test, 2. displacement test and 3. manipulation test.
