HySecurity’s new anti-terrorist vehicle barrier HydraWedge SM50 meets or exceeds all anti-ram vehicle barrier standards.
“HydraWedge isn’t a mere ‘final denial’ vehicle barrier,” says Richard Woltjer, HySecurity VP of Marketing. “Maintain highest security by cycling HydraWedge for every vehicle during peak and low traffic periods. Almost all anti-ram wedges deploy only during threat conditions. One vehicle / once cycle traffic control use risks premature wedge failure. HydraWedge benefits from highly tuned, low maintenance HySecurity hydraulics and precision mechanical engineering to ensure long, high cycle, low maintenance operation.”
HydraWedge opens or closes lanes in 3 seconds in standard operation. Emergency Fast Operate (EFO) secures the lane in one second. That’s as fast or faster than any competitive product. It’s quick and inexpensive to install because it features the shallowest (9 inches), most compact reinforced foundation of any wedge. Add a UPS battery backup for the most fail-safe, secure vehicle barrier available.
“HydraWedge is a huge departure from traditional wedge barriers,” says Woltjer. “Every wedge barrier passes a crash test certifying that it stops a 15,000 lb. truck at 50 mph. HydraWedge SM50 not only stops that truck with no penetration, it communicates potential and actual perimeter breach conditions to security responders in real time, giving them the immediate intelligence necessary to prevent and mitigate a perimeter breach.”
HydraWedge passed three domestic and international crash tests with negative penetration: ASTM 2656 M50 P1, PAS 68 and IWA-14-1. It is crash certified at its smallest and widest blocking widths, 2 and 4 meters.
HydraWedge is the fourth vehicle barrier in HySecurity’s crash product line. It joins crash barrier arms StrongArm M30 and StrongArm M50, and anti-vehicle theft WedgeSmart DC. All these products benefit from HySecurity’s perimeter security intelligence real-time reporting.
All HySecurity gate operators detect and send security alerts when a suspicious vehicle parks for more than 5 minutes outside an access control point, when a safety barrier arm installed ahead of the wedge is hit by a vehicle, when a security slide gate in front of the wedge is forcibly opened, when the wedge is triggered to secure the lane and doesn’t respond, and dozens more security and operational conditions.
