Surface Mount Barriers for Nuclear Power Plants – Hidden Protection, Ready when Needed

Nuclear Power Plant Physical Security Protection for Access Point Control

Nuclear Power Plants are responsible for the protection and safety of employees, visitors, and the area surrounding the plant.  Nuclear Power Plants have very few entry gates, with only one main entry.  Fewer entry and exit points allow for efficient and effective control of access.  Tight control is mandatory when radiation is involved. 

There are multiple reasons Nuclear Power Plants need extra levels of security and extreme levels of protection from unauthorized entry, which should be obvious.  Most nuclear power plants, like other high-security facilities, use drop arms for access control.  Stopping the intruder requires a crash rated and highly effective physical security product.  Nuclear security is a serious business requiring planning for every possibility.  Forced intrusions into Nuclear Power Plants must be stopped instantly.

Excavation may not be a viable option for many reasons.  The installation of a high crash rated vehicle entry prevention barrier is available without excavating the location.  The solution is the BBRSS created, modern physical security product, surface mount barriers, which is ideal for Nuclear Power Plant access point control.

Nuclear Power Plant Physical Security – Old vs. New

Some modern Nuclear Power Plants are being constructed across the country. Current nuclear power plants are instituting physical and perimeter security at the design stage and making it a priority.   Older Nuclear Power Plants require retrofitting for protection.

What are Surface Mount Barriers?

Surface mount barriers are quicker to install than other physical security products because excavation is not needed.  Surface mount barriers are mounted on hard surfaces, typically concrete.  During installation, the barriers are secured in place by reinforced bolts.  

How do surface mount barriers operate?  Operation involves the engaging and disengaging of a crash rated barrier.  Access is denied when engaged, while disengaging allows for vehicle entry by merely driving over the barrier.

Surface mount barriers are very easy to install and deliver a high-security vehicle access control system, which is perfect for Nuclear Power Plant access points.  There are continual threats from truck bomb attacks, errant drivers, or car-crashing thieves, and Nuclear Power Plants are target-rich environments.  The safety secret is rapid deployment.
