Active Vehicle Barriers

Active vehicle barriers are often necessary for vehicles to access control points. The United States Department of Homeland Security offers a guide to selecting and specifying AVBs. It includes factors such as site assessment, threat assessment, and site security plan. The selection criteria for a barrier may include stopping improvised explosive devices or meeting government certification standards. A variety of options are available. Learn how to choose the best one for your location. Here are some ways to make the right choice.

A hybrid type of active vehicle barrier includes both a passive wedge and an active beam. Both can be used in various projects and are governed by the standards of the ASTM F2656. These barriers have been tested against a 5,000-lb. Vehicle and have a penetration rating that represents how far the vehicle made it past the barrier. These ratings should be as high as possible. The best barrier is one that is both crashworthy and inconspicuous.

Fixed bollards are an excellent option for long-term security. These systems are mounted to the ground or embedded into the pavement. The main disadvantage of these systems is that they cannot be removed from the site. However, they are relatively easy to install and maintain. This type of active vehicle barrier is typically the most affordable option for many installations. These barriers are permanent and provide the best security. If you need to change the location of the barrier, you can always use an adjustable temporary structure.

Temporary Fences and Barricades

Temporary fences and barricades are useful tools for various events. Whether the event is for home security or an outdoor concert, these barriers provide safety for both people and property. If you’re hosting a large event or have to keep traffic and access to a specific area of a large space under control, you should consider using a temporary fencing system. However, a temporary fencing system may not be the best choice for all situations.

Barricades are lightweight and portable fences made of galvanized steel. They can act as pedestrian barriers and can even serve as bike racks. Unlike traditional fence panels, barricades are also quick and easy to set up and take down. For this reason, they’re a good option for one-day events. Here are some reasons to rent temporary fences for your next event.

Chain-link Temporary Fences and Barricades are the most common type of fence used on construction sites. These fences are typically made of wrought iron and require a heavy steel counterweight to secure them. Because of this, they can be dangerous for people attempting to move them, they are commonly used in places with high traffic counts. Barricades are often used in conjunction with other types of temporary fences.

Swing gates

Automatic Swing Gates can be a great choice for any property. These doors can be programmed to open and close automatically after a worker has passed through. This allows for near-endless protection of your walkways, stairs, and other areas, and eliminates the need to keep following workers from opening and closing the gates. These systems are ideal for preventing theft and damage to property. In addition, they can be programmed to be closed on command, which keeps employees focused on their job.

Upswing barrier gates

Barrier gates can be used in a number of commercial applications including traffic control, apartment parking, and business parking lots.

Wedge barrier is named for its wedge-shaped appearance when viewed from the sides. These barriers are sometimes called plates barriers, as the most common use a steel plate that is angled towards the vehicle. You can create a maze that allows the vehicle to move by placing Jersey wall barrier.

This forces the vehicle to slow down and allows for clearance.


Bollards are vertical posts that are shorter than the rest and can be used to protect objects or structures from being damaged by moving vehicles.

These posts are versatile and can be ordered in a variety of sizes, from 24a EUR to42a EUR in height. They also come in variable diameters to suit a specific location’s security requirements.

Bollards are a great way to keep your look natural while still providing crash-rated security.

Passive Barriers

Passive barriers are permanent barriers that prevent vehicle interference from damaging a building or property.

Passive barriers do not have moving parts. Their effectiveness is dependent on their ability to absorb energy and transmit it back to their foundations.

Concrete Walls

Concrete walls, if correctly designed and built, can be effective as barriers. These walls’ effectiveness is dependent on their height, thickness and foundation depth.


Terrain can be used to create a vehicle barrier. Some vehicles have difficulty crossing ditches with sufficient width and depth, or steep side slopes. Berms can also be useful if they are properly designed.

Barrier Security

There are many options for security provided by barriers. They can be temporary or permanent depending on the facility’s needs and other factors. To find the right barrier solution, you must consider safety access, the value of the secure property, and the risk associated with the intrusion.

Barrier systems are constructed to meet the specific standards of the Department of State (DOS) and have three levels of security K4 and K12.

These enclosures can be used to increase or decrease the protection depending on the facility.
