Avon Barrier is an international designer, manufacturer and installer of high security hostile vehicle mitigation solutions, offering a comprehensive solution in the field of entry/exit security control points and perimeter protection. Our security road blockers, barriers, bollards and vehicle gates are designed to protect against a hostile attack in the form of a ram raid or a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) and are installed in data centers and other sensitive sites.

Blocking systems are designated as life-saving equipment. It is essential that they are suitable to combat today's ever increasing threat types. The equipment developed by Avon Barrier has been extensively tested in a number of ways to ensure that when it needs to perform, it will play its part.

Our crash testing program has included testing to the BSi developed specification PAS 68, the US ASTM standard F2656 07 and the new international works agreement: IWA 14.1:2013. Testing work undertaken to date includes dynamic impact testing with a variety of different impact forces, penetration testing (mainly aimed at pedestrian control equipment) and explosive shrapnel dispersal testing.

Our impact tested products includes:

- Rising Arm Barriers
- Road Blockers
- Automatic Bollards
- Static Bollards
- Super Shallow Bollards
- Sliding Vehicle Gates

We also do parking and security barriers.
