Gibraltar’s anti-ram barriers receive USACE approval
Eight new Gibraltar anti-ram barrier systems have been approved by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Protective Design Center, the company announced on 12 July.
The approved barriers are designed to protect facilities, assets and personnel from vehicular attack or errant vehicles leaving the roadway.
The approval means that the barriers can be deployed to protect federal sites. The products include vehicle barriers, portable drop arms, sliding gates, foundation bollards, and anti-ram fences from its G-Force product line.
The company has now successfully performed ASTM F2656 test certifications on more than 15 different types of anti-ram vehicle barriers, with 15 of its current products listed on the USACE Department of Defense Anti-Ram Vehicle Barrier List.
