Vehicle ramming attacks are continuously on the rise in the United States and abroad. Government agencies at the federal, state, and local levels along with corporation campus sites are assessing vulnerabilities in their facilities and public spaces. Anti crash fencing is a solution that can both deter and prevent unwanted entry into sensitive areas.
Passive bollards have long used as a successful preventive method to stop vehicles from encroaching in areas with unrestricted walking access. They are manufactured in a wide array of architectural shapes, finishes, and sizes. This allows them to blend in or even complement the surrounding environment. However, bollards are not an efficient option for spaces requiring longer runs. Anti-ram fencing, also called crash fence, crash rated fence, cable barrier fence, post and rail fence, security fence and sometimes anti-terrorism cable fence, is more cost-effective and practical than bollards and it is more ideal for restricting unauthorized vehicle access to large facility or campuses.
Crash fence is also ideal when used for protecting office buildings, critical infrastructure, hazardous materials, and open space when designed to be hidden from view. Anti ram and crash fence can be designed and installed in conjunction with other perimeter security features such as hardened furniture, retractable bollards, boulders, anti ram walls and other aesthetically appealing but effective crash barrier options.
