Heald is proud to announce that the Viper Shallow Mount Roadblocker has undertaken ASTM crash testing at MIRA.

Unique design features include:
No pre-cast pit, fitting very quick and easy.
Minimal foundations.
Total depth of excavations 400mm.
No reinforcement of concrete required.
Blocking element stands at over 1000mm high.
Low maintenance costs.
Tested with N3 type vehicle (18 tonner weighing 7.5tonnes) and American specification vehicle tested.
