Entrance barrier gates – sometimes referred to as hostile vehicle mitigation barriers (HVM) – are widely applicable where regulating traffic flow and vehicle access is important. They allow controlled vehicle entry for commercial buildings, air- and seaports, transportation and distribution sites, car parks and other properties with high-volume traffic flow.
Heras vehicle barriers are secure, robust and reliable. They open and close rapidly and can span an entranceway of up to six meters, allowing for wide vehicle access while mitigating against intrusion, vandalism and vehicle attack.
In some cases, Heras customers have benefitted from reduced operational costs and increased efficiencies following installation, especially where there are highly complex logistics and distribution operations.
The Heras B420 uses reliable hydro-electric operation and is ideal for high-risk, unsupervised sites. It offers proven performance for the highest continuous use in industrial, commercial or military applications.
Heras traffic barriers meet the necessary industry standards and certification, and higher security models are crash tested (including PAS 68 and LPS 1175) to protect against vehicle attack.
LPS security ratings are important because they show how effective a perimeter protection solution is at delaying an attack. Approval is tested and awarded by The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) and is recognised by governments and regulatory authorities globally. Accredited products provide proven, demonstrable protection which is recognised by insurance companies through reduced premium costs.
For customers needing enhanced security, an anti-pedestrian skirt can be fitted, and LED lighting, electromechanical arm lock or fixed or hinged safety posts can be added too, depending on each customer’s situation and security requirements. Customers can choose the colour of the housing, hood and panels.
Heras security products are made to order, and can provide expert and safe installation services for ease and peace of mind.
For sustainability, Heras’ electric barriers boast low energy consumption, but still have sufficient power for fast opening and closing required at medium and high-risk sites.
Each is tailored to specific site requirements and so is costed individually. Heras believes its prices are always competitive and affordable.
Barriers form the basis of good perimeter protection. They can be integrated with other outdoor security measures such as detection and camera systems and access control products to create a sophisticated security solution to meet every customer’s needs.
One example would be to combine a barrier and a speed gate to create a lock process adapted to the highest security level, by preventing multiple unauthorised vehicles from simultaneously breaching the site.
Entrance control solution to improve logistical efficiency
One of the UK’s leading grocery retailers, turned to Heras to develop a secure perimeter protection system that would allow efficient control of vehicles flowing through its distribution centres. Part of the integrated solution was to install barriers at dedicated separation lanes to ensure automated and speedy flow of the retailer’s own vehicles while reducing demands upon gatehouse and traffic staff. The future-proofed concept enabled the retailer to make its delivery operations more secure and effective, while significantly streamlining operations at its distribution centres.
