What Kind Of Vehicle Will A Wedge Barrier Stop?

For facilities that require the highest level of security, it is important to choose the right barriers to keep unwanted people and vehicles out. One way to effectively protect your property is by installing wedge barriers at the entry points of your facility. These high-quality and durable barriers provide the perfect blockage to prevent unauthorized vehicles from entering the grounds.

What Are Wedge Barriers?

Compared to other anti-ram crash barriers, wedge barriers are because they are not fixed structures that are always set in place. Instead, these barriers have the ability to retract back into the ground when allowing personnel to enter freely, and then quickly placed back in the upward position. This style of anti-ram crash barrier is ideal for spaces that are limited in space but would still like full coverage security.

HySecurity’s HydraWedge stands out among other wedge barriers on the market for many reasons. For one, this style of wedge barrier can be installed as shallow as 12 inches into the ground, allowing for fast and simple installation. Also, its ability to rapidly deploy the wedge during emergency situations. The Emergency Fast Option (EFO) is able to extend the wedge into a full extension within one second to offer your facility the highest level of defense against outside threats.

What Will They Stop?

The HydraWedge is domestically and internationally crash-tested to stop a 15,000-pound truck going 50 miles an hour. Crash is certified for both its smallest and widest blocking width which are 6.5 and 13 feet. Unlike other wedge barriers on the market, the HydraWedge is capable of stopping that truck with no penetration.

Where Can They Be Installed?

Wedge barriers were engineered with high-security areas in mind. These barriers are built tough and are designed to give full coverage protection and defense to areas and buildings that require it. Locations that are likely to see these wedge barriers installed include government buildings, correctional facilities, state capitals, and border crossings.
