Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM)

Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) is now a consideration for many industries, to protect assets, buildings and more importantly, people. The threat of terrorism in the UK remains serious. The current threat level set by the Government is ‘Substantial’, which means that an attack is likely at any time.

There are numerous HVM solutions available across the market which range from automatic bollards to static columns and barriers. One of the simplest and most effective solutions is to install anti-terrorism bollards. Both fixed and retractable bollards offer continuous protection however the option to retract the bollards can allow easy access for operational vehciles and even emergency vehicles. The bollards can also provide a discrete solution to maintain the aesthetic of the location.  

BFT Automation anti-terrorism bollards have been developed to some of the highest standards of protection and have been independently crash-tested. Our bollards have a number of independent certifications including IWA14 and PAS68 ratings and have been impact tested at speeds of up to 50mph (80kph).
