HESCO, leaders in the design and engineering of defence products and perimeter security solutions, is now adding a hostile vehicle mitigation access control product to the company’s TERRABLOCK line.
HESCO launched TERRABLOCK in 2017 which was widely covered in AST, a completely surface-mounted hostile vehicle mitigation perimeter fence, engineered for critical infrastructure security and urban asset protection.

At International Security Expo, Olympia London, Hesco has announced the new TERRABLOCK Rising Arm Barrier (RAB), which was impact tested at Karco, California, installed in under six hours, and joins with the HESCO Energy Transfer System to HESCO earth-filled units.
With zero ground work preparation the barrier stopped a truck weighing 6800kg traveling at 40mph, the barrier brought the vehicle to a complete stop within 5-meters, ensuring that any follow on hostile vehicles were unable to pass around the vehicle to enter the site.
The RAB beam also remained fully intact on impact.
