All temporary traffic barriers must be able to withstand three different classes of wind speeds with the use of a ballast. The standard BS 8442:2006 states the three classes as the following:
Class A: 26.3 m/s (58mph) extra weight of 90kg needed.
Class B: 17.6 m/s (39mph) extra weight needed 30 kg.
Class C: 8.7m/s (19mph) no extra weight needed.
The Gate Barrier system was tested under strict conditions at the Full Scale Wind Tunnel at Mira to determine at which wind speeds the barrier can withstand.
