The Avon RB880CR Defender Shallow Road Blocker provides a high level of protection where deeper foundations are not possible / practical. With a shallow foundation the RB880CR Defender crash tested security road blocker is designed to complement the Avon Barrier range of Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) solutions. The RB880CR road blocker can withstand direct impact forces of 1,852 KJ, providing shallow mounted protection to sites from extreme Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) attack.
The high security road blockers were developed by our in-house engineering team to overcome specific site limitations and using the experience gained with the design, testing and production of the RB780CR Road Blockers, RB880CR is an additional highly dependable security product that will easily interface with a wide range of control equipment.
Units are assembled in our fabrication facilities using heavy gauge materials to give maximum strength and durability. This makes the RB880CR an ideal product to protect high security establishments, iconic buildings and critical infrastructure where existing underground services or other depth restrictions are an issue.
The RB880CR Road Blocker has been independently physically tested in a number of full scale crash tests conducted in accordance with PAS 68 by the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL). This led to the RB880CR Defender High Security Road Blocker becoming the first British built shallow foundation road blockers installed by the British Government.
The RB880CR is an electro-hydraulically operated blocking system with a standard segment width of 2m or 3m. The blocker has an imposing 1m height when fully raised and is comprised of a static sub-surface ground frame with foundation support legs and a hinged, rising impact wedge. Raised/Lowered back indication signalling can be provided to enable remote monitoring of the blocker status on a real time basis (optional).
The hydraulic power pack is controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC) enabling connection of virtually any access control to the blocker. In addition, the PLC can be configured to enable the road blocker to be raised quickly (under 1 second) in an emergency by utilising a hydraulic accumulator (optional). In the event of power failure a manual pump is provided to ensure operator control is maintained. The blocker can also be fitted with an optional debris protection skirt.

Avon Barrier are specialist in hostile vehicle mitigation and traffic control systems
Avon Barrier are specialist in hostile vehicle mitigation and traffic control systems, today we are global exporters of impact tested Vehicle Security Barriers (VSB) as defined by the UK’s Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI). Testing of our road blockers, traffic control barriers, bollards and gates is rigorous and has included impact testing to the internationally recognised standards PAS 68, IWA 14-1 & ASTM 2656.
Avon Barrier was originally formed by a group of engineers over 25 years ago, all of whom had considerable experience in the design and development of vehicle control systems. In our formative years, parking and security barrier systems were our core products, however with the rise in terrorism in the 1990’s we realised that higher levels of security were required and assurances that our barrier and blocking systems could withstand or mitigate the damage of a possible hostile vehicle attack. This lead to our first road blocker physical impact test in 2004, which was carried out in conjunction with the UK Government, these first physical tests using a large vehicles (trucks) driven at speed into a blocking system led to the formation of PAS 68, which is a British Standards Institute, Publicly Available Specification.
