We offer certified vehicle locks that meet the highest standards of mobile security.
PAS 68 was first published in 2005 and replaced by the 2013 version. This test method enables the certification of passage barriers such as road barriers, barriers and high security gates and is based on the differentiation of six types of test vehicles (cars with 1,500 kg test weight to trucks with 32,000 kg test weight). The most commonly tested impact speeds are 48 km/h, 64 km/h and 80 km/h. The impact angle is usually 90°. Penetration (= vehicle penetration depth) is measured from the rear of the drive-through barrier facing away from the impact and the Datum Point (reference point on the test vehicle). Fragments are documented from 25 kg.
The IWA was published in 2013 to provide an internationally recognized and uniformly applied specification. This test method assesses the performance of drive-through barriers based on nine different test vehicles (cars with 1 500 kg test weight to trucks with 30 000 kg test weight). Frequently tested impact speeds here are also 48 km/h, 64 km/h and 80 km/h. The angle of impact is usually 90°. Penetration is measured from the front of the drive-through barrier facing the impact and ends at the Datum Point (reference point on the test vehicle). Fragments are documented from 25 kg.
The technical guideline "Mobile Fahrzeugsperren"
The technical guideline “Mobile Fahrzeugsperren” (TR) was created in 2018 by the Police Technical Institute at the German Police University (PTI) and describes the special requirements for mobile police drive-through barriers. This test procedure was written exclusively for mobile drive-through barriers. The TR distinguishes between three protection classes (SK1, SK2 and SK2+). In each protection class, a distinction is made between a paved and an unpaved surface. The test can use a truck with a test weight of 7,500 kg, a truck with a test weight of 12,000 kg or a truck with 30,000 kg. Depending on the selected protection class and truck, the impact speeds are 53 km/h or 42 km/h (SK1), 83 km/h or 66 km/h (SK2) and ≥ 73 km/h or ≥ 46 km/h (SK2+). The penetration depth is measured from the point of impact to the maximum penetration depth of any part ≥ 100 kg. Fragments are documented from 2 kg. To pass a full test, both a 90° and 45° impact angle test must be performed.
