Frontier Pitts Ltd is the British Manufacturer of Security Gates, Automatic Barriers, Bollards, Blockers and Turnstiles. With over 100 years experience we design, manufacture, install and maintain perimeter security equipment.
The Anti Terra Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) range which has been successfully impact tested to the International IWA14 & British PAS68 specifications. With 22 entries currently on the Catalogue of Impact Tested Vehicle Security Barriers, we have impact tested six exciting new products within the last 20 months.
Four of these products have been impact tested under the new International IWA 14-1:2013 specification. IWA 14 combines the vehicles and energies from the other impact test specifications around the World, including the British PAS 68, American ASTM F2656-07 or K12, and European CWA 16221.
The Terra Shallow Blocker MKII has been successfully impact tested to IWA 14 by 7.2t travelling at 80kph within the aperture, whilst remaining operational after impact. Our latest model of Rising HVM Bollard is the Terra Universal Bollard which has been successfully impact tested to IWA 14 by 7.2t travelling at 80kph. The fully automatic, easy glide, hydraulically driven Rising Bollard mechanism provides outstanding 360° Hostile Vehicle Mitigation protection from the threat of VBIED's. It has been designed to complement the Static Bollard diameters of our HVM Planet range which allows inter-changeable diameter sleeves to be fitted to the rising bollards inner core, creating a versatile and stylish perimeter protection solution.
