Anti-terrorism crash barriers have a number of applications in today’s security-conscious environments. Generally, any property or premises where the need exists to control vehicle (and in some cases, pedestrian) access can benefit from the installation of a crash gate or similar barrier:
Airports: Crash barriers can provide security in public areas such as parking lots, terminals and restricted areas such as hangars and runways.
Seaports: Crash barriers can provide perimeter security at seaports to minimize the risk of unauthorized entry of persons, materials, or substances.
Factories: A crash barrier will protect the vulnerable perimeter of virtually any type of industrial factory, manufacturing plant or distribution facility.
Military Bases: Security gates and bollards are ubiquitous sights at military installations for preventing trespassing and forced intrusion via vehicle impact, as well as for controlling the heavy volume of vehicle traffic.
Border Crossings: Crash barriers are vital components for controlling the flow of vehicles across state and national borders, preventing terrorists and other criminals from breaching our borders.
Public Utilities: Strategically placed crash barriers at water treatment plants, power stations and other public utilities can minimize the risk of disruption to these critically important entities.
Transportation Terminals: Crash barriers can help to prevent mass-casualty incidents at busy transportation hubs such as bus and railroad stations by helping to control passenger flow and preventing unauthorized access to vehicles.
