Scope of Work: Consult, plan and install physical security upgrades including wedge barrier and crash rated gates.

The multiple sets of Anti Ram In Ground Wedge Barriers installed are ASTM classified H60, the highest rating, which will stop a a 65,000 lb. vehicle traveling 50mph.
The automated and reinforced vertical pivot gates installed are also high K-Rated anti-crash gates to further protect the facility.
