This test method provides a structured procedure to establish a penetration rating for vehicle perimeter barriers subjected to a vehicle impact at 30 (48km/h), 40 (64km/h) and 50mph (80km/h). Knowing the penetration rating provides the ability to select an appropriate barrier for site-specific conditions around a facility. Vehicle Security Barriers tested to ASTM F2656-15 will be rated against a 6800Kg Truck.
Supported by AASHTO (American Association of State Highways and Transportation Officials), this ASTM standard is a Vehicle Impact Testing Standard commonly used and recognised across the US and Middle East.
