Optima, PAS 68:2010 crash tested hydraulic rising road blockers.

Roadblockers and bollards are all designed for gates or entrances of buildings/campuses or sites. However, this is a case where the entire perimeter except the gates, is assumed to be safe enough. Suicide bombing vehicle attacks may also come from any possible place from the perimeter except the gates. As long as the suicide bombing truck is able to find any kind of runway to speed up, inner part of the site is under threat . The only solution to overcome this threat is having an OPTIMA PAS68:2013 Anti-Vehicle Crash Tested Fencing System.

The main components of the fencing system are static bollards and tensioned steel ropes running on top of all the bollards. Diameter of the bollards is 325mm and the height above the ground is 1200mm. On the outer side of the bollards (threat side) near the top, there is a flat metal part. This part is designed to gain the maximum amount of inertia to resist the impact load on the fencing. The material of both the bollards and the flat metal are high strength special type steel. Bollards are also buried under the ground level and they are connected to each other using sophisticated engineering methods which guarantees %100 safety. There are 4 lines of high strength steel ropes on outer top side of the bollards for extra safety.

Civil works for the OPTIMA AVF SERIES ANTI-VEHICLE FENCING SYSTEM is very easy and economic. There is no need for special drilling equipments or time consuming form and rebar placing.

Optima Engineering realized the crash test of Optima Anti-Vehicle Fencing System to BSI PAS68:2013 on 21 December 2015, in U.K. The test is a full success. The truck moving 80km/hr. with a weight of 7500kg/hr. is fully destroyed. No follow-on second truck can pass either. Therefore, with this crash test, Optima Anti-Vehicle Fencing System is awarded PAS68:2013 crash rating and classified as PAS 68:2013 Fence V/7500[N3]/80/90:0.0/15.6
