Certified Vehicle Barrier List

The DOS, DOD, and ASTM have updated their list of certified Vehicle Barriers. Certified Vehicle Barriers are "Crash Rated," meaning they have been tested in a full field crash test using a real vehicle. They have also been reviewed and updated annually by the US Army Corps of Engineers and the United States Department of Defense.
