Today’s barriers and bollards are capable of stopping and destroying a truck weighing up to 65,000 pounds and travelling at 50 mph. Such barricades can be raised or lowered at will to stop traffic or let it through.
When integrated properly into a total security system, including fences, lights, alarms, gates and other security components, vehicle barriers are a key measure in preventing threats to sensitive resources.
In designing a barrier system, it is important to consider whether to use a passive or active system. Normally, an active system keeps the barrier in the active or "up" position, which must be deactivated to permit access. Active systems are more secure than ones that must be activated to prevent access.
Permanent Barriers and Barricades
From car park security to stopping vehicle access at refineries, there are a variety of suitable barricades available.
Our high security barriers are all crash rated in widths up to six metres and up to one metre high. Lowered to allow the passage of authorised vehicles, these automatic barriers are the first line of defence at critical facilities.
When looking for a bollard solution, you choose the level of security you need. From protecting a headquarters to a warehouse or even a parked tanker, you can find a bollard system to meet your needs.
Bollards are both aesthetically pleasing and versatile – you can create the look you want. Ranging from faceted, fluted, and tapered, you can choose the colour as well as any emblems and logos you wish to have. In addition, bollards can be galvanized for corrosion resistance, fitted with an internal warning light for increased visibility and engineered to suit high traffic volume.
Your Security System
Protecting perimeters of facilities is no small responsibility. Knowing you’ve got the right equipment in place to secure the facility brings a peace of mind that no amount of money can buy. Good research will ultimately lead to the right solution.
