Surface Mount Barriers for Airports

Airport Physical Security Protection for Access Point Control – Strategically Hidden, Quick Activation

The security of an airport is extremely important, from the perimeter to the interior.  Every access point to the airport must have protocols and physical security products available for every contingency.  The increase in terrorist attacks is staggering, and airports are a prime target.  Gaining access to an airport is a terrorist’s dream.  Airports provide a maximum damage scenario if access is achieved.

The majority of airport access points are gates for employees and travelers.  However, every airport has at least one access point for only authorized visitors, some with multiple. 

These points require protection from illegal entry.  Protocols and security contingencies have been put in place for every possibility.  Access to criminals, unauthorized personnel, or anyone looking to harm must not be allowed.  The priority is the protection of the Airport, employees, and travelers from terrorist events (ram event) and out of control vehicles.

BBRSS has designed a modern physical security product, surface mount barriers, perfect for Airport access point control.  Wedges are often used, but surface mount barriers are an option when retrofitting, updating, or when excavation is not an option.

BBRSS has the physical security products and experienced professionals available to assist in the protection of critical Airport entry points.  Contact BBRSS today (800) 367-0387.

Airport Physical Security – Old vs. New

When new Airports are built, physical and perimeter security are at the forefront of the design stage.  Older Airports tend to retrofit or remodel for protection.

What are Surface Mount Barriers?

What do you think of when envisioning security access points?  Gates and movable arms?  Surprisingly, there are more options available with increasingly higher crash ratings.  What if you need a product that will stop a large vehicle instantly but cannot excavate?

The product you’re looking for is a surface mount barrier.  As the name illustrates, surface mount barriers are mounted on top of hard surfaces, typically concrete.  The barriers are secured in place by reinforced bolts.  

The operation of a surface mount barrier is simple and efficient.  Operation consists of engaging and disengaging a crash rated barrier.  Access is denied when engaged.  Whereas, disengaging the barrier allows for vehicle entry by simply driving over the barrier.

Surface mount barriers deliver a high-security access control system, which is perfect for Airport entry points.  There are continual threats from truck bomb attacks, errant drivers, or ram events, and Airports are target-rich environments.  Rapid deployment is the key.
