Pitagone F18 Temporary Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) Barrier

Our F18 Temporary HVM Barriers allow Local, State and Federal Governments as well as Stadiums and other crowded spaces, the flexibility to quickly and effectively seal off road access.


The F18 has been tested to the stringent PAS68 / IWA14 standards and is certified to stop vehicles of most sizes and travelling at a range of speeds. Independent testing has also been carried out in Australia by NSW Roads and Maritime Services.

Nudge Test

Crucially, the F18 barrier has been tested to withstand not only high-speed impact, but is the only barrier in this category that is certified to withstand a soft nudge from 1km/h – 10km/h.


The F18 can be set up to seal a standard lane of traffic in around five minutes with one or two people. It does not require forklifts or tools to place it.


The barriers are delivered in containers of 6 that can be stacked and forklifted to site. The containers have integral ramps to allow for easy offloading of the F18’s.
