Why Are Anti-Ram Barriers So Important?

Crash-rated barriers

Anti-ram barriers are one of the most important tools when it comes to protecting your building and employees or customers from any harm.

When planning traffic control for your private or public property, there are many high security options available to protect your property and building. Anti-ram barriers are one of the most important tools when it comes to protecting your building and employees or customers from any harm. Why exactly are anti-ram barriers so important?

Anti-Ram Barriers Prevent Ram Raiding

If you haven’t heard of ram raiding yet, count yourself in the lucky minority. Ram raiding is a criminal technique to raid private facilities or storefronts quickly. Criminals will ram their vehicle into the front of your store to gain entrance and then steal property or vandalize your property (or both!). Ram raiding might sound like something that happens rarely, but it is a popular criminal activity that is increasing in popularity every day. If ram raiding happens during business hours, pedestrians, customers, and staff can all be harmed or killed in the process.

Anti-Ram Barriers Save Money

Ram raiding is incredibly costly for businesses that are targeted. A vehicle crashing into the front of your business can mean thousands of dollars in repairs and weeks of being closed and losing store revenue. Damage to your business will also harm your reputation, as a damaged business is unsightly and unattractive to anyone passing by. Beyond the appearance, if your store is not open for a month as you repair, customers will naturally lose interest and potentially see it as unsafe to shop at. Anti-ram barriers also stop the looting and vandalism from occurring within your store after the impact of the vehicle crash. Depending on your business and industry, a break in could mean anywhere from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of stolen property.

Anti-Ram Barriers are the Protection You Need
