LW3 Hostile Vehicle Mitigation Barrier

The AVS-elli LW3 Hostile Vehicle Mitigation Barrier is the smallest of our LW Series of Folding Block Barriers. It offers easy installation with its light weight and excellent stopping power.

The LW3 Hostile Vehicle Mitigation Barrier offers many of the benefits of our larger FOLDING BLOCK barriers, its narrow gauge enables it to be an effective, unobtrusive protection for walkways, small roadways, laneways and access doors.

Designed and built in Australia, the AVS-elli LW Series FOLDING BLOCK barriers use our proven geometry and energy dissipation methods to arrest hostile vehicles. Our FOLDING BLOCK are designed to be installed on flat slabs with shallow ramps to smooth the approach and departure. 

Ideal for creating chicanes and altering approach routes and managing traffic flow. Engineered to 260 KJ with a 950mm wide blade, this barrier provides versatile protection capabilities.
