Successful crash test for barrier from Frontier Pitts.

Frontier Pitts : 29 June, 2007  (New Product)
Frontier Pitts' Terra rising arm hydraulic barrier withstands 7500kg impact test to demonstrate protective power for embassies, airports and other potential terrorist targets.
The Terra Hydraulic Barrier, a vertically opened, reinforced boom, was crash tested in accordance with British standard PAS 68:2007 standards . The test was conducted to prove the arresting capability of the Terra Hydraulic Barrier with a boom length of 4500mm, when impacted with a 7500kg test vehicle at a speed of 65km/hour (40mph). The BSI PAS 68: 2007 specification requirements are comparable to that required by the Department of State test standard SD-STD-2.01 K8 standard. Installation of the Terra Hydraulic Barrier is in line with BSI PAS 69:2007.

Following the highly successful crash tests involving the other certified equipment in the Anti Terra range, Frontier Pitts was confident that the Terra Hydraulic Barrier would also pass the toughest test and achieve the most difficult standard.
This impressive test result has not only proved the stopping power of this equipment, but also the reliability and fortitude of design.

The Terra Hydraulic Barrier is available with a boom length up to 4500mm. A hydraulic motor operates the robust rising arm barrier boom which has a reinforced fixed end rest positioned at either end. In the closed position the boom can be securely locked using a powered magnetic locking bolt.

Key features of the Terra Hydraulic Barrier include a range of operating speeds and secure magnetic locking. For added security full height swivel skirts or lower folding skirts can be mounted to the Terra Hydraulic Barrier boom. Other standard barrier accessories such as boom lights and signage are also available.

The Terra Hydraulic Barrier requires minimal foundation depths of only 300mm, which can be deeper to reduce the surface area, suiting individual requirements.

Frontier Pitts have developed the Terra Hydraulic Barrier and the Anti Terra series to meet the requirements of our customers at Airports, Embassies, Palaces, Government Institutes and Military bases around the World. The Anti Terra range includes the Terra Blocker, Terra Bollards (crash tested as a single unit and dual unit systems), the Terra Beam, the Terra Road Closer, and the Terra Gate, which has been impacted in both the fully closed and half open positions, without the need for repair. After all the crash tests the equipment was fully functional.

The Terra Hydraulic Barrier, like all Frontier Pitts products are all designed, built and CE marked in the UK to the most stringent international standards. These tests have been witnessed by CPNI, previously NSAC (National Security Advice Centre) plus NICC; the UK Governments Advisory Body for Security.
The Frontier Pitts crash rated Terra Hydraulic barrier ATTB-80 is available in with a boom length up to 4500mm.
