RB980CR Sabre Surface Road Blocker

RB980CR Sabre Surface Road Blocker

RB980CR Sabre Road Blocker

The RB980CR Sabre Surface Road Blocker provides temporary high-level protection where sub-surface foundations are not practical.

The road blocker is PAS 68 impact tested hostile vehicle mitigation solution that is simply bolted to the roadway, an effective means of securing a site quickly without the need for any civil works.

Designed in conjunction with the British military, these modular road blockers combine ease of transport and fast deployment with a high level of immediate protection and are ideal for temporary requirements, such as high-security control point for conferences or military checkpoints. The RB980CR is suitable as a logistic support barrier for use in theatre and support base protection.

Product Overview

The surface road blocker was independently physically impact tested conducted in accordance with PAS 68 by the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL). The road blocker arrested a 7500kg vehicle traveling at 80kph (50mph) and achieved a PAS 68 classification of V/7500(N2)/80/90:8.5/12.8

Assembled in our fabrication facilities the road blocker combines a RB880CR blocking system with a set of modular approach ramps constructed using heavy gauge materials to give maximum strength and durability. This makes the RB980CR the best solution to secure sites needing temporary and immediate high-security protection.

The road blocker comes with a push-button hold to run control as standard.

The road blocker can be customised to interface with a wide range of access control equipment to suit specific customer requirements. Available configurations include (but are not limited to) inductive loop systems, card readers, communication equipment and manned guard emergency systems.

This is a specialist high-security product and is designed for use with vehicles only and a full site risk assessment must be carried out at the design stage to ensure that all relevant safety systems are included.

Where the blockers control point is remote from the installation, we strongly recommend the fitting of a recordable CCTV system.

It is also strongly recommended that a debris protection skirt is fitted. For safety reasons pedestrians, cyclists and motorcycles should not use a blocker controlled roadway.
