What is the availability of Grand Island K-rated vehicle restraint systems?
Since the tragic events of 9/11, the high security industry has grown, and security options have increased in number, with strong emphasis on security gates, security fencing, access control, and fixed barriers. We can help pick out what’s ideal for your facility, with our broad selection of vehicle restraint system options.
Vehicle Barriers in Grand Island
Vehicle barriers come in the following types: passive and active. Depending on how they’re operated, used, or put together, both can be moved or fixed in place. Dual classification applies to certain commercial barriers, when they meed requirements of both categories (such as fixed-active and portable passive). No industry-wide standard terminology applies to vehicle barriers. Instead, the following definitions are used.
Passive Barrier Systems
Passive barrier systems get their name from a lack of moving parts. They’re dependent on energy absorption transmitted to their foundations. Passive barrier systems in Grand Island examples include: guard rails, ditches, posts, bollards, reinforced fences, highway medians, and tires.
Active Barrier Systems
Active barrier systems are classified by the need for personnel or equipment to determine whether a vehicle may enter. Examples of active barrier systems include: beams, gates, bollards, barricades, and tire shredders.
Fixed Barrier Systems
Fixed barriers can be either passive or active. They are permanently installed and cannot be disassembled and/or relocated without the use of special equipment. Examples include: pits, concrete barriers, retracting systems, hydraulically operated rotation systems, and steel barriers.
Portable Barrier Systems
Portable barrier systems are easily relocated, though sometimes equipment may be necessary to complete the transfer. Available as passive or active, examples of these barrier systems include: highway medians, 55-gallon drums, and hydraulically operated sled-type barricade systems.
Hydraulic Pop-Up Barriers
Hydraulic pop-ups, which are immovable barriers that typically encompass the length of the drive, sit at or below ground level. Designed to rise quickly, in order to divert a potential threat from a vehicle traveling at high speeds, they are moved by hydraulic pistons.
Cable Restraint Systems
In most cases, cable restraint systems consist of ¾” to 1 ¼” diameter cables installed at heights intended to stop and capture vehicles. Cable restraint systems may be either certified or uncertified. Certified cable restraint systems have a K-raying determining how far vehicles of certain weights and sizes (and traveling at certain speeds) will stop upon hitting the cables. The cables are placed between posts at a certain height and terminated with a deadman system.
Hydraulic crash bollards are steel bollards that retreat to ground level and rise within three seconds, to stop fast moving vehicles. Easy to operate, these bollards work in tandem via three button stations or sophisticated security systems. Used to protect U.S. embassies and federal facilities across the world.
Crash Barrier Gates
Specially formulated to halt foot traffic as well as fast moving vehicles, crash barrier gates are extremely popular security appliances at airports, where they help prevent unwanted intrusions on grounded aircrafts. Crash barrier gates require electrical gate operators. Per FAA requirements, crash barrier gates move at a rate of two feet per second.
Barrier Arm Gates
Barrier gate arms function similarly to a parking arm gate. They feature a large tubular steel booms that rise and lower. Upon reaching its closed position, the cable assembly contained within automatically loops over a large saddle horn made of steel. Barrier arms gates have been designed to stop vehicular threats moving at fast speeds and are available for electrical/mechanical/manual operation.
High Security Prison Gates
High security prison gates are operated from a remote site. They feature a unique locking column, fully enclosed track, and chain assembles. They cannot be undone by hands on intervention. Grand Island prison fencing needs to be especially tall and without gaps, not to mention 100% foolproof.
In this day and age, gate automation in Grand Island is associated with a broad variety of access devices, including telephone entry, anti-passback, retina scanners, three strikes, tailgating, fingerprint scanners, personal computers, and more. With all of these security access devices at your disposal, you can determine who can enter your facility and at what times.
Concertina wire comes in a variety of types and diameters and is employed for security in nuclear power plants – as well as correctional facilities – across the nation. Formerly used only in prisons, it was helpful as criminals are unprepared to deal with this, especially the severe form commonly known as the “razor wire.” As the number one fence contractor in Grand Island, we encourage that special consideration be given to public safety before the installation of concertina wire at your facility.
