The way to safely stop cars at high speeds
The CARREST Police system was developed in close co-operation with the Swedish Counter Terrorist Unit (NI). The original idea was to find an alternative to the dangerous and unpredictable spike belts. The system should be mobile, easy deployable and perform a controlled arrest of a run-away car with a minimized risk for injuries of the passengers. The system is approved by the Swedish Criminal Police and is also exported to other special forces. Fields of application include checkpoints, border control, customs and roadblocks for units like the Police, Special Forces, anti-terrorist commands and the Military.
The road construction variant is developed to protect road workers. The net barrier system has been certified by VTI, the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute and is approved by the National Road Authority. The CARREST Road system effectively seals off roads, tunnels, gates and bridges.
With CARREST you stop a normal car engaging in 110-120kph in a controlled manner within 50-60m with maximum safety for the driver, occupants and third parties.
