Developed by Hill and Smith plc, and fully tested in association with TRL (Transport Research laboratory).
The Bristorm system consists of an arrangement of plastic coated, high tensile steel wire ropes, which are heavily galvanized/greased and sheathed with a high density polyethylene coating.
With a modulus of elasticity of 195KN/mm2 +/- 10KN/mm2, it means that the system does not require any re-tensioning during normal wear and tear.
The strands are supported on steel posts and anchored at each end on substantial termination points.
The Bristorm fence can be installed in any colour with the posts to match so that it will fit in with any environment.
Applications for the Bristorm anti-terrorist fence include: airports, banks, cash collection centres, oil and gas terminals, MOD property and large shopping centres.
