All commercial, industrial, and military facilities need to ensure their properties are as safe and secure as possible. In addition to a strong security fence, crash rated barriers are crucial for keeping vehicles and unwanted visitors from making their way into your facility. Continue reading to learn the benefits of high-security crash rated barriers, and if your business needs extra security.
Industries That Need Crash Barriers
Crash barriers have a variety of applications in today’s security-conscious environment and are useful for any property that must control vehicle and pedestrian access. For example, airports, military basis, factories, public utilities, and transportation terminals can benefit from a crash gate or similar barrier. The barriers help to provide high-security to public areas, prevent trespassing, and forced intrusion, as well as controlling heavy volumes of vehicle traffic.
Crash Gate Systems
There are various types of crash gate systems, ranging from slide gates to vertical lift gates. A cantilever slide gate is a good choice is you have sufficient space on one side, as the gate must slide horizontally to open. The slide gate doesn’t require any ground tracks or overhead support, but can be supported by two or four posts installed on one side of the opening.
A vertical lift-gate is a popular choice for properties that want an automated gate, such as parking lots or garages. The lift-gate is raised to permit entry or exit, making it a good option where there is not sufficient space for a slide gate to open.
