Vehicle blocker stops 7500kg lorry at 50mph.

Frontier Pitts : 29 June, 2007  (New Product)
Anti-terrorism vehicle blocker withstands European impact test to demonstrate capabilities of preventing intrusion of large vehicles at critical sites and installations.
Frontier Pitts High Security Anti Terra Blocker has been successfully crash tested in accordance with BS PAS 68: 2007 standards.

The Terra Blocker successfully stopped a European lorry weighing 7500kg, travelling at 50mph (80kmph).

Following months of in-house design, computer simulations and further R&D testing, the Terra Blocker, was successfully crash tested at TRL Crash Laboratories, stopping a lorry weighing 7500kg, travelling at 50mph (80kmph), as specified by the BS PAS 68:2007 standard.

The Terra Blocker model ATTB-80e, designed with a lifted height of 1100mm, successfully stopped and immobilised the vehicle. With zero penetration of the cargo trailer past the face of Terra Blocker, the equipment successfully met the requirements specified in the BS PAS 68:2007 standard. This impressive test result has not only proved the stopping power of the Terra Blocker, but also the reliability and resilience of design.

Frontier Pitts were confident in selecting the toughest test, to achieve the BS PAS 68:2007 standard following the previous Terra Blocker crash tests. The Terra Blocker model ATTB-80, designed with a lifted height of 810mm, has been previously crash tested in accordance with DoS K12 and BS PAS 68:2005 standards, using an International truck, weighing 7500kg and travelling at 50mph, purchased from America.

No other company in the World can offer a product which can surpass the standards for PAS 68:2007 and the Department of State certification. This is a major breakthrough in high security, anti-terrorist barricades. These test results have been witnessed by CPNI, previously NSAC (National Security Advice Centre) plus NICC; the UK Governments Advisory Body for Security.

Frontier Pitts have developed the Anti Terra Blockers to meet the requirements of our customers at Airports, Embassies, Palaces, Government Estates and Military Bases around the World.

Terra Blocker ATTB-80e Successfully Crash tested to PAS 68:2007 standards when impacted with a European lorry.

Both models of Terra Blocker, like all Frontier Pitts products, are all designed, built and CE marked in the UK to the most stringent international standards.
The new Terra Blocker ATTB-80e is part of Frontier Pitts Anti-Terrorist Series.

Other products in the range include the Terra Blocker ATTB-80, which was successfully tested by MIRA (independent crash laboratories), and the Terra Bollards which have been successfully tested as a single unit and dual unit systems by TRL. The Terra Gate was successfully tested in both the fully closed and half open positions at TRL. The Terra Road Closer recently joined the Anti Terra range, as a successfully crash tested horizontally opened, hinged reinforced beam, which is the basis of the Terra Hinged Gate.

Frontier Pitts has also been accredited with ISO 9001, certifying quality in sales, customer service and manufacturing.

The Terra Blocker ATTB-80e is available in widths up to 8000mm, with a lifted height of 1100mm.
