The 5ft Raptor is a rapid deployment steel vehicle barrier that will repel vehicles that try to crash though it. It is a free-standing barrier that effectively prevents hostile vehicle attacks and can be used as an effective barrier for crowd control.
• Three of the Raptor units can be shipped and disassembled on a skid that is approximately 1.5m x 1.5m x 1.5cm with a weight of about 900kg. When needed, it can be rapidly assembled with supplied hardware and tools. No engineering support is required.
• As 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.
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.
