ASTM F3016-14

Standard Test Method for Surrogate Testing of Vehicle Impact Protective Devices at Low Speeds

Storefronts of all types are susceptible to both high-speed and low-speed accidents.  These accidents result in damage to the structure, and more importantly injury or even death to pedestrians.  This ASTM low-speed testing standard sets the requirements for vehicle protective devices such as bollards, to protect against impact from vehicles traveling at speeds of 30 mph or lower.
