Avon Barrier Company brings new PAS68 Static Bollards to Counter Terror Expo

As one of the U.K.’s leading manufacturers and exporters of crash-tested barriers, road-blockers, gates and bollards with products in over 70 countries, Avon Barrier Company Ltd. has chosen Counter Terror Expo to introduce its new PAS 68 static bollards to a more European audience.  It will also be detailing its full range of products on stand F19.

The new ‘Avon Scimitar’ bollards have all been physically crash-tested to PAS 68 standard and provide vital protection for perimeter, building, street and access route security, especially where there may be a risk of terrorism, such an extreme Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) attack.

Impact testing has been carried out at different speeds with four bollard models within the range to offer a choice of options from 30-50mph impact protection depending on the application.  The Scimitar range provides an important new product for high level security, but without the need for an outwardly aggressive appearance and is therefore suitable for on-street and shopping mall use, as well as wider applications.

These latest developments increase the options for crash-tested products especially designed to mitigate against a hostile vehicle attack. The range includes rising arm barriers, road blockers, sliding armoured gates and bollards. 

Also highlighted will be one of the widest gates tested to PAS 68, the SG1100CR Sliding Armoured Gate, which offers a clear opening gap of up to 7 metres.  The SG100CR is a specialist high-security product that incorporates a full impact resistance system which means that a wide range of gate heights and infills can be configured to meet individual site applications. This High Impact Security Gate provides very robust heavily engineered protection for vehicle access routes, yet can be installed without the need for extensive civil engineering works, due to shallow footings requirement (less than 500mm overall depth).  It has been developed to be commercially competitive, even against non-tested gates.

Commenting on the Counter Terror Expo, Paul Jeffrey, Managing Director of Avon Barrier Company said; “Our new PAS68 static bollards are an ideal introduction for anyone new to the Avon Barrier range and provide affordable, proven, protection against potential terrorist attack.   Visitors to our stand will also be able to find out more about our full range right up to the highest level road blockers and sliding armoured gates.”

Avon Barrier Company Ltd. ( ) design, manufacture and install a range of specialist crash-tested high-end physical security protection including crash-tested barriers, road-blockers, gates and bollards.  The company operates internationally and has its headquarters in the United Kingdom.
