The Bristorm Anti-Vehicle Fence range consists of a number of tensioned wire-rope systems with either seven or ten ropes supported by line posts and terminated at anchor points. The length of each fence is infinite as long as the maximum distance between anchors is maintained in accordance with the manufacturer's installation manual.
Each variation of the anti-vehicle fence system has been crash tested to BSI PAS 68 with a 7,500kg vehicle at 30, 40 and 50mph, achieving between 2-4m penetration. The fence system itself is composed of anchor posts, line posts, wire rope and mechanical fittings. A detailed installation methodology can be found in the manufacturer's installation manual and the associated general arrangement drawings.
To give it added protection and ensure longevity the steelwork for the fence is hot-dip galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 as standard. While the wire rope strands are zinc plated and HDPE coated as per EN 10264-2:2002 or EN 10244-2. Thicker coatings are available and we can powder coat the fence to a specific colour on request.
