Truckstopper 5 - Crash tested to 7.5 tonnes at 50mph/80kmh
Truckstopper 5 Removable Bollard from Safetyflex
Truckstopper 5 is a unique applied for patent design from Safetyflex. Truckstopper 5 has been designed so that when a vehicle hits the posts, the spring post will flex and send the kinetic energy back to the vehicle and not into the foundation. The system is designed to follow the contours of the ground and can go round corners with no special parts needed.
The post foundations are only 400mm deep and 1.2m wide. Successfully tested at MIRA to BSI PAS68:2010 stopping a 7.5 tonne truck at 50mph (80kmh) at 90 degrees. After impact, if the bollard is damaged, it can easily be removed and replaced without having to replace the foundations. The the steel is good for 20 year wear, with the only need for re-painting or it can be fitted with mild or stainless steel shrouds.
Only requires a footing of 400mm...

This Publicly Available Specification (PAS) has been prepared to address the needs of organizations who want assurance that vehicle security barriers will provide the level of impact resistance they are aiming for.
PAS68 identifies impact test methods, tolerances, test vehicle type and vehicle performance criteria that need to be met in order to conform to PAS68. It cites a classification system for the performance of vehicle security barriers and their supporting foundations when subjected to a single horizontal impact.
