Different Resistance Barrier Technologies

Resistance barriers or bollards protect many high-risk buildings. Government institutions, military facilities, and other high-security buildings all use these barriers to protect property and control traffic. Security bollards are found in front of pedestrian plazas, bike lanes, tourist destinations, and other high-trafficked areas. Resistance barriers use different technologies to protect a space. With increased security [...]

Why Use Bollards?

What is a bollard? The quick, simple definition of a bollard is a vertical post that’s short and sturdy, but that’s not very helpful, is it? A better description of a bollard is a secure post or barrier that surrounds areas like parking lots and storefronts, and they offer additional security to the property and […]

Reversible Lanes Traffic Gate Technologies

In areas with highly congested traffic, it can be beneficial for controlling agencies to switch the direction of traffic to allow for faster traffic movement. During peak traffic times, reversible lanes can make a massive difference to those needing to get home or get to work on time. These lanes are most often changed every [...]

How Crash Resistance Barriers Are Saving Lives

According to the US Department of transportation, 30-40% of fatal crashes occur when vehicles are run off the road. Another shocking statistic comes from 30% of all cross-median crashes ending in severe injury or fatality. These statistics have led to increased implementation of crash barriers to prevent vehicles from coming off the road or smashing [...]

ASTM F2656 – Most Common Test Methods for Crash Testing of Vehicle Security Barriers

Perimeters of controlled areas such as embassies, factories, military bases, and others need the highest levels of security to prevent breaches. In the past, attackers have used vehicles to ram through gates and into these vulnerable areas, sometimes with deadly effects. Over time, organizations have implemented increasingly more robust perimeter security and crash gates to [...]
BBRSS: Vehicle Gates used in Managed Lane Applications

Vehicle Gates used in Managed Lane Applications

Managed lanes have been around for nearly 40 years, and different types of managed lanes help solve other transportation congestion challenges. These managed lanes restrict access to a road lane depending upon traffic constraints and congestion.  Vehicle gates are an excellent management solution for areas where the population is high, and managed lanes are needed on […]
