New Guide for Recommendations on the selection, specification and installation of safety barriers and bollards

1. Scope

To develop and standardize terminology, test methods, specifications, performance specifications, classifications, and practices for security systems, components and equipment for security of property and life and product counterfeit protection. This work shall be coordinated with other identified ASTM Technical Committees, organizations and individuals affected by and having an interest in the work of the Committee.


parking lots; storefronts; shopping centers; healthcare campuses; farmers markets; street closures; storefront crashes; pedal error; driver error


Vehicles crash into commercial buildings more than 60 times per day in the United States. More accidents between vehicles and pedestrians occur in parking lots than any other private property locations. Knowledge of the use, availability, and installation of these life safety products is not as common as it should be, and as the F3016 standard becomes integrated with best practices and building codes, greater public information needs to be available for building departments, city planners, code entities, and specifiers in order to assure proper compliance.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
