Wedge Barriers

A large vehicle runs a checkpoint or is traveling towards your facility at a high rate of speed.  What physical security product do you have ready to deploy to stop the vehicle in its tracks?  What product can do the job and remain intact yet render a runaway vehicle inoperable the instant it comes in contact with it?  The exact situation that BBRSS looked to remedy with the design and development of its industry-leading wedge barriers.  Wedge barriers offer maximum security, for highly sensitive entry points, against unauthorized vehicles of any sizes and weight.  BBRSS wedge barriers made of the highest quality heavy gauge material and vehicle crash-tested to internationally accepted standards.  Wedge barriers have the option of installing as a single unit or in combination with other physical security products (e.g., barriers, gates, or bollards).  Recent technological advancements have allowed for a reduction in installation depth and foundation footprint, reducing installation costs significantly.  The progress now enables wedge barriers to be installed in areas where underground utilities limit foundation depth.  Wedge Barriers have low maintenance requirements as compared to other physical security products and offer a high level of reliable operation.  (800) 367-0387.

Wedge Barrier Installation

As mentioned, technological advancements have significantly increased the areas where wedge barriers can be installed. The installation process for wedge barriers is simple due to the shallow-mount design of the product. Hence, excavation work is significantly reduced for existing roads or paved surfaces. Drains, hydraulic conduits, and electrical services are now included in most models, further easing the installation process. 

Wedge Barrier Operation

Wedge barriers are moved to the up position, for protection, with a single, center-mounted actuator designed to push on a pivot arm to rotate the top impact structure into place.  Optional actuators are available upon request, including hydraulic, electric, or manual. High impact structure has been designed for simple operation enabling minimal maintenance and rapid replacement after impact as required.
