  • Some companies achieved Crash Test Certificate for security barriers from accredited laboratories like PAS:68, DOS K-12, ASTM F 2656, IWA 14-1.
  • PAS: 68 meets that 7.5 tons truck crashes to a security barrier with 80kph speed. DOS K-12 and ASTM F 2656 meets that 6.8 tons truck crashes to a security barrier with 68kph speed.
  • Crash Tested Security Barrier are made of strong steel to absorb crash loads.

How does a security barrier work?

  • Kind of Building Management Systems, card reader systems, remote control systems, biometric systems, ticket accepting devices etc. can be connected to operate the security barrier.
  • Security barriers have a push button console which has also Emergency Stop Button to avoid accidents.
  • Some of them has Emergency Raise Button to raise it fast for vehicle attacks.
  • Basically, the hydraulic power unit pumps hydraulic oil to the pistons and pistons pushes the blocking part. Thus, the security barrier raises.
  • In case of power failure; it is possible to raise and lower it with manual hand pump, or hydraulic accu. , or DC motor and DC pump with dry batteries.
  • A security arm barrier is raising and lowering with a hydraulic piston.
  • Hydraulic tank, AC motor or DC motor, hydraulic pump, direction control valve, hydraulic hoses etc. hydraulic equipment are used as it is same as usual hydraulic power unit.
