CR25 Crash Beam Barriers Gates are engineered and designed to protect at-risk access points and prevent forced vehicle entry or exit for industrial, commercial and institutional facilities requiring medium to high security. Available in manual, hydraulic or electromechanical operating modes, the crash beam barrier gates are ideally suited and for oil refineries, chemical plants, train yards, storage facilities, technical centers, nuclear facilities, embassies, military installations and government agencies.
Basic components of the crash beam barriers include the standard vertical to horizontal arm with an energy absorption cable assembly, hinge post, receiver/latch post, cable-reinforced crash beam and automatic controls. When the crash beam is hit by a vehicle, the aluminum beam gives way to the cable inside, and the impact energy is absorbed as the cable stretches. When the cable is at full tension, the impact energy is then transferred to the foundation through the hinge post and the receiver/latch post of the crash beam.
With a gate arm made of 4" aluminum pipe lined with a 7/8" stainless steel wire rope, these crash barriers have been successfully crash tested for energy absorption capacity per U.S. Navy Specifications and Department of the Army rating level of KN1-LN2. These models are listed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the document, Protection Against Malevolent Use of Vehicles at Nuclear Power Plants (NUREG/CR-6190 Vol 2, Rev. 1)
