Developed by ANNT in collaboration with Hörmann/Pilomat, OktaBlock is designed to meet and exceed international crash test standards, providing unparalleled safety and peace of mind. In this blog, we’ll explore the innovative features of OktaBlock and its impact on enhancing public safety.

The OktaBlock Advantage

Certified for Maximum Safety

OktaBlock is not just any barrier; it’s a certified solution according to the highest international standards, including BSI PAS 68:2013 and IWA-14-1:2013. These certifications ensure that OktaBlock can withstand significant impacts, such as from an N2/N2A category vehicle weighing 7.5 tonnes at a speed of 50 km/h, absorbing around 750,000 joules of impact energy. This level of certification is critical for ensuring maximum safety in public spaces.

Innovative Design for Versatile Protection

One of the standout features of OktaBlock is its axisymmetric geometry, which allows it to repel vehicle collisions from any direction. This versatility is essential for unpredictable real-world scenarios, ensuring comprehensive protection regardless of the angle of impact. Additionally, OktaBlock’s design is non-threatening and inviting, seamlessly blending into urban landscapes while providing robust security.

Hassle-Free Installation and Maintenance

OktaBlock’s design facilitates a time-saving installation process. The fully assembled individual blockers can be easily positioned with standard equipment such as a crane or forklift truck, without the need for special technical knowledge or extensive civil work. This ease of installation makes OktaBlock an ideal solution for temporary events or rapidly changing security needs.

Flexibility and Cost-Efficiency

The flexibility of OktaBlock is unmatched. Whether it’s securing narrow streets, large public gatherings, or providing defined passage points for emergency and rescue vehicles, OktaBlock can be arranged individually in rows or offset to meet specific requirements. This flexibility, combined with its maintenance-free design, makes it a cost-efficient solution for a wide range of applications.

Additional Functionalities

OktaBlock goes beyond just being a barrier. It can be used as a notice or advertising space, creating new revenue streams for events. The option for an all-round banner maximizes its utility while maintaining its primary function as a security barrier.
