TerraBlock® M50 P1 crash-rated fence on list with DoD


TerraBlock® M50 P1 is the first crash-rated fence to make the DoD anti-ram list as a passive inertial barrier.

Betafence’s rapid deployment surface-mounted barrier TerraBlock® has been approved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for Hostile Vehicle Mitigation.

Independently tested to ASTM F2656-07, TerraBlock® carries an M50 P1 certification, meaning it stops a 6800kg (15000 lb.) vehicle travelling at 80 km/h (50 mph) within 1m of the fence line. TerraBlock® is included in the US Department of Defense list as the only sand-filled barrier with fence in the Passive Inertial barrier category. Ideal for remote applications where resources are scarce, TerraBlock® is a combined surface-mounted crash barrier and robust high-security fence.
