Crash Rated Gates Won’t Be Your Facility’s Weak Point

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

A high security fence is the best way to keep out trespassers and vehicles because it forms a solid barrier around the entirety of your facility. Or, at least, most of the entirety; you will still need a point of entry so that those individuals who are cleared to do so may access the building. But by having a gate installed in your high security fence line, are you not automatically creating a weak point that intruders can try to target? Not if you have a crash rated gate installed by Hercules High Security- read on to find out more!

A crash rated gate is more than just an access point built in to your perimeter fence. It is, in and of itself, and extra security measure. A typical gate would potentially be a weak point, given that by nature it is not as impenetrable as a section of fence is. But crash rated gates are different. Like crash rated fencing, these gates are designed to stop moving vehicles that might try to ram through them in order to gain access to your facility. The K-rating system comprises gates that can withstand the impact of a 15,000 pound vehicle traveling at speeds up to 50 miles per hour. If they can do that, keeping out an intruder on foot should be a breeze!
