Stop Traffic with Crash-Rated Barriers

Your top security facility needs all the safety precautions it can get, and in a high-traffic area, this becomes all the more important. While fences and bollards can certainly serve their purposes, you may need the additional help of a crash-rated barrier. Read on to discover more about this security measure and how it has been proven to stop traffic in its tracks!

Depending on the specific level of security you think will best suit your needs, you have a wide range of crash-rated barrier options. Like crash-rated fences, barriers adhere to the K-rating system, a system created by the U.S. State Department which assigns different numbers to barriers of different strengths. These include:

K4 Barriers: These barriers can stop a vehicle weighing up to 15,000 pounds and traveling up to 30 miles per hour.

K8 Barriers: These barriers can stop a vehicle weighing up to 15,000 pounds and traveling up to 40 miles per hour.

K12 Barriers: These barriers can stop a vehicle weighing up to 15,000 pounds and traveling up to 50 miles per hour.

This standardized crash-rating system ensures that you are able to pick the right crash-rated barrier for your facility. Alternative options, such as barrier arms and anti-ram barriers, also work to keep out traffic and intruders using vehicles to infiltrate your facility. From military forts to government buildings, crash-rated barriers are an ideal way to provide an extra layer of security where you need it most.
