Passively safe street furniture is designed to minimise the severity of injury to occupants of a vehicle that collides with it. The European Standard BS EN 12767 defines a universal test that establishes the performance of a passively safe roadside structure. Glasdon passively safe highways products are tested by accredited independent specialists at MIRA and TRL.
These product tests are conducted with a small (900kg) car in a head-on, frontal impact at the highest possible speed to accurately stimulate conditions on rural A roads, where the highest number of traffic fatalities occur. Find out more about passive safety standards here.
