Road blockers from Gunnebo provide security and flexibility
If you’re looking to stop unauthorised vehicles from accessing your site or to prevent attack by a hostile vehicle – perhaps one carrying an IED – road blockers are an ideal hostile vehicle mitigation solution. These robust structures can control vehicle traffic and stop would-be attackers on the spot, especially larger trucks and other threats of that size.
One of the prime selling points of road blockers, in addition to their formidable presence, is their adaptability. Many models can be raised when needed to block access and then lowered when entry is permitted. This gives users more flexibility than the installation of a structure that is permanently deployed.
Where are road blockers typically used?
You’ll find road blockers used virtually everywhere, from construction sites to government facilities and border crossings. For example, building and industrial sites appreciate their heft that prevents the movement of trucks after hours, either entering the premises or being driven off-site in an act of theft.
At large border ports of entry, traffic typically ebbs and flows, with manpower reduced during quiet times. Road blockers can be raised during off hours to prevent the movement of cars and trucks in unmanned lanes, and they can be lowered flush with the ground when staffing is increased and lanes are opened during the busiest periods. Road blockers are also excellent for use in controlling secondary inspection areas and sallyports .
Other places where road blockers are frequently installed to stop hostile vehicles or prevent theft of valuable property include:
- Government and military facilities
- Embassies and consulates
- High-level research institutions
- Nuclear power plants and public utilities
- Airports and train stations
- Correctional facilities
- Museums and historic sites
- High Risk Sites such as Data Centres
