HESCO introduces breakthrough crash-tested M40 P2 access control barrier at the International Security Expo 2018
HESCO, leading manufacturer of design and development of defense products and perimeter security solutions, adds another access control product to its TERRABLOCK range against enemy vehicles.
In 2017, Hesco introduced TERRABLOCK, a complete surface mounted perimeter fence designed to protect critical infrastructure assets and urban facilities from vehicle intrusion. This year, Hesco announced the new barrier lock TERRABLOCK RAB (Rising Arm Barrier) at the International Security Expo, Olympia London .
TERRABLOCK RAB has been impact tested in California. The system was set up in under six hours, together with the HESCO Energy Transfer System to HESCO earth-filled units. The barrier, which does not require any preparatory groundwork, stopped a 6800 kg truck at a speed of 40 mph (64 km / h). The lock brought the vehicle to a standstill after 5 meters. This ensures that enemy followers do not enter the area by driving around the vehicle. The beam remained completely intact on impact.
Maggie Horritt, Technology and Production Development Manager at Hesco and developer of this lock, understood that there is a need for a barrier lock that can prevent all forms of unauthorized access.
“The TERRABLOCK RAB has a unique design that allows controlled lifting in exposed locations and can stop an enemy vehicle at a speed of 40 miles / hour.The tamper-proof design protects the locking mechanism from hostile sabotage, along with HESCO barriers or already TERRABLOCK RAB allows controlled access without compromising safety.
Hesco brings decades of military experience to the civil security market and understands the ever-changing levels of threat and the need for a quick fix that protects people and facilities whenever and wherever necessary.
Hesco representatives are from 28.-29. November during the International Security Expo, Olympia London , Booth G30.
