Crash-Rated Gates Enhance Perimeter Security

As anyone who works at a high security facility knows, the security settings of your perimeter are of paramount importance. They are your first line of defense against intruders, vehicle crashes, and any other kind of imaginable breach. The last thing you want to do is leave a weak point in your perimeter, but then again, you do need an entry point for official and authorized persons to use. So what’s the solution to this problem? A crash-rated fence from Hercules will do the trick.

What is a Crash-Rated Gate?

Crash-rated gates are specifically designed not to leave a weak point in your perimeter; in fact, they do the exact opposite. First, the gate is made to keep out anyone who does not have authorization to entry a facility on foot, so you will not have to worry about pedestrians gaining access to your facility without clearance. Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, crash-rated gates are designed to keep out vehicles and to withstand their impact. One of the most common ways for intruders to try to gain access to high security buildings is by breaking through their perimeter by crashing into a perimeter fence with their vehicle, and they may target the gate, viewing that as a potentially easier point to break down. But with a crash-rated gate, they will have no such luck. Crash-rated gates can withstand the force of a vehicle traveling up to 50 miles per hour.
