The 5’ Raptor is a powder coated steel vehicle barrier that will repel vehicles that try to crash though it. One of these can be shipped disassembled on a skid that is approximately 1.5m x 1.5m x 60cm with a weigh of about 815kg When needed, it can be rapidly assembled with supplied hardware and tools.
Since it is a free standing barrier, it can be easily relocated with a forklift or our optional Raptor Cart. The open design does not allow someone to hide behind it as can be done with solid barriers. A chain kit is also available to attach several of the barriers together and/or anchor it to a specific location. Photo shows 3 chained together.
On October 11, 2010, we performed a crash test on the 5’ Raptor Vehicle Barrier. The testing was based on the ASTM Vehicle Crash Test Standard (ASTM F265-07). A truck weighing 6.9 tons was crashed into the Raptor Vehicle Barrier (free standing on crushed rock) at 50 mph.
As can be seen from the crash photos, the truck was brought to a complete stop. The Raptor section that was impacted showed considerable damage, but the barriers not impacted could be placed back across the area utilised as a barrier.
