Centurion - Standing the Test of Time
by: Australian Bollards on
Public protection is a great focus of Australian Bollards, we pride ourselves on keeping up to date on current impact test standards and ratings. We are delighted to be able to carry a multitude of different HVM solutions that hold various safety impact ratings.
There are many different impact test standards for rating hostile vehicle mitigation solutions, such as bollards and traffic barriers. These test standards include PAS 68, IWA-14, K4, K12, M30 and M50.
The PAS 68 and IWA-14-4 are international standard, and the US standards include the K4, K12, M30 and the M50. The K4 and M30 have equal ratings, as-well as the K12 and the M50. For a solution to have one of the US standards they must be crash tested with vehicles at least 7000kg (15,000lb) going at least 50kph for a M30 (K4) rating and 80kph for a M50 (K12) rating.
