Wedge Barriers for Ports

Ports are characteristically large due to the number of ships that pass through daily.  Most think of the water as a vulnerability for the port, but vehicular entry points are incredibly vulnerable.  The large number of trucks and trailers flowing in and out leaves gaps in protection.  Ports need a quick way to stop the traffic and end a vehicular threat immediately.  What would be better for terrorists than to strike a port and stop the flow of goods hurting the economy?  Entry points are often the first line of defense, quick-acting security products are.  Port security teams must be ready for any possibilities.  BBRSS can assist by reviewing your physical security plan and products and offer options to increase and bolster your port security.   BBRSS has developed a complete line of wedge barriers for use in ports and assist in resolving some of the most urgent issues.
