LW3 Quickfit Hostile Vehicle Mitigation Barrier

The AVS-elli LW3 Quickfit Hostile Vehicle Mitigation Barrier is a rapid deployment version of our LW3 Folding Block Barrier. It is designed for temporary event security.

Designed for very quick installation where no surface attachment or mains power is available. Using the LW3 barrier attached to a pair of McGirr type blocks provides a level of protection not previously available to Expeditionary Security forces and static security details in high risk areas.

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 temporary event security and altering approach routes and managing traffic flow. Engineered to 260 KJ with a 950mm wide blade, this barrier provides versatile protection capabilities.
